The Mass Book for 2017 is now open for scheduling Masses! Forms may be found in the back of the church (on shelf in front of cry room). Please return completed form to the parish office.
If you would like to provide the altar flowers for a particular date in honor/memory of someone, you can do so by either notifying the Parish Office at 724-869-3024 or simply put an envelope in the collection basket with your donation of $45. Also in this envelope enclose a short note including: your name; whether in honor or memory of; and that person’s name. Include a daytime phone number where you can be reached, if needed. Please put in your request at least two weeks prior to the date you wish to honor or remember this person. Requests will be taken on a first-come first-serve basis and cannot be honored for Easter or Christmas.
On Sunday, Dec. 18, 2016 following the 10:30AM Mass, there will be a Baptismal Preparation Program for those parents who have recently given birth or are expecting in the near future. The program addresses the importance of baptism as well as the responsibilities of parents in sharing the faith with their children. Please call the parish office at 724-869-3024 to register.
The Light is on for You!
“The Light is On for You!” is an initiative of the Diocese of Pittsburgh to encourage Catholics to avail themselves of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Confession is a wonderful opportunity to set aside our sinful ways and to draw closer to our Lord. Confession will be available on Wednesday, December 14 from 7PM to 9PM at Our Lady of Peace Parish.

Please print the name of the family member to be remembered or honored on this envelope (or enclose a sheet of paper if needed), along with your donation and drop it into the collection basket or mail to the parish office before December 12th. The names of the memorials/honoree and donors will be published and distributed at all the Christmas masses. The donations for the flowers are $10, $15, and $20 per plant.

The SATURDAY VIGIL MASS has been moved from 5:30PM to 4PM. This is done every year at the end of daylight savings time through Palm Sunday so that people can be home before dark (and hopefully before roads freeze up) during the winter months. Thank You!
