Challenge to be good stewards

Be clean ... in body and in mind!

Think high, and live up to your thought!

Let every thought word and deed

Be kind and honest, brave and true!

Never refuse another's need,

Do as you'd have him do to you!

Against all evil set your face,

And bravely do your Master's will.

quote from the poet John Oxenham

Prayer: Holy and loving God, help us to be such stewards that you will be able to say to each of us: "Well done, good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of your Master" (Mathew 25:21). Amen.

Rosary Crusade

Saturday, October 10, 2015 @ 11:00 am

Rosary Prayer Group gathered at Jack Kilby Square (Court House Square) in Great Bend. Many Prince of Peace parishioners, members of K of C, Altar Society, Daughters of Isabella, Blue Army, Adoration Chapel, youth and more attended the Rosary Crusade.  We joined with groups all over America (3 days before the 98th Anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun at Fatima). We prayed for World Peace and for America and much more. Banner carriers were: Mercedes Helms & Barbara Mallard, Song leader: Virginia Klepper; Rosary leader: Harold Schmidt.


Thank you all for participating in this wonderful hour of prayer for Peace & America!


Continue to pray!


God Bless each of you!

Pope Francis Visits USA


Many of us have had the opportunity to view some or all of the events of Pope Francis visiting the US (first in Washington, D.C., then New York and ending his visit in Philadelphia).  Crowds of people attended the events, Mass at all 3 locations, meeting with UN, meeting with Bishops, visiting the homeless, those that were abused, those in prison, just to name a few of the events.


What a glorious inspiration that Pope Francis is to everyone! It is an amazing time for all of us! Some of our own parishioners actually took the pilgrimage to see the Pope! How exciting! We are truly blessed that he traveled to visit us.


Just want to leave you with a few quotes by Pope Francis:


"We need to see each child as a gift to be welcomed, cherished and protected..."

"Resolve not to be overcome by evil, but to combat evil with good.

"Help One Another This is What Jesus Teaches Us. This is What I Do. And I Do it with My Heart."


Have a wonderful day and week!
