CHOIR OPENINGS
There are openings in the choir in all voice parts for choral singers.
Prospective singers should have good sight reading skills, and a pleasant agile voice.  The commitment of time and focused energy is important, particularly at Christmas and during Holy Week.  If you have the desire to serve our OLP community in this very special way, please contact the Parish Office.  The first choir practice will begin on Wednesday,
September 5th, 2018 at 715 PM~9:00 PM
Please do not leave the Church before the Celebrant (priest).  The Mass ends officially when the priest leaves the Church.  Even then, it is usually advised you sit or kneel in silent prayer of thanksgiving or simply gaze at Jesus in the Tabernacle, smile at Him and just 
be joyful.   God Loves you!

2019 MASS BOOK OPENING

The 2019 Mass book will be open on MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 24th at 9:30 AM to reserve Mass Intentions during 2019.  Given the volume of requests we have at Our Lady of Peace, Mass intention requests are honored on a first-come, first-served basis.  We regret that we may be unable to accommodate the number of intentions you might desire.

Due to the volume and fairness to all parishioners, we can accept only one Mass intention request for the same person/intention.  We will limit each individual to only 5 weekend Masses, 3 can be at the same Mass time.  If you require additional weekend Masses, please come into the rectory after December 1rst.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. 

Mass intentions may be requested in person in the Rectory Office during regular weekday office hours (Monday through Friday, 9am-4:30pm).

The customary offering is $10 per Mass intention.
