​Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

As we enthusiastically launch the 2024 United Catholic Appeal (UCA), it is with deep gratitude and a joyful heart that I thank you for your unselfish generosity. Your financial support for the pastoral, charitable and diocesan ministries of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis is a bold example of how we are United in the Eucharist. Through the stewarding and sharing of your treasure, you are magnifying the impact we can have in central and southern Indiana, and beyond.

In a time of many challenges and difficulties, the call to help bring the people of our archdiocese closer to Jesus Christ through our many ministries and programs grows louder every day. And to answer that call, we need your support.  Our goal for the 2024 United Catholic Appeal is $6.3 million. The needs for each of the ministries mentioned in this case statement are what make up our goal amount each year. We are fortunate that 100% of gifts to the United Catholic Appeal go straight to ministry. Whether you give $5 a month or $500 a month, your gift will make a lasting impact on someone’s life. 

Thank you again for your generosity and support. Without donors like you, so many would not have the ability to know, love, and serve the Lord. May the grace of God make us truly one in Him, United in the Eucharist.

With the assurance of my prayers and best wishes for you, I remain

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Archbishop, Archdiocese of Indianapolis

The ladies held their annual Cookies for Christmas fundraiser on Sunday, Dec. 17th. A special thanks to Amy Schafer for her leadership and to the ladies of the parish for providing lots of delicious cookies and treats. Fun was had by all.

Shawe Seniors Zachary Gish and Kira Wells gave a great presentation at Jewell Place Assisted Living facility in Madison. 
         These two students interviewed a resident of Jewell Place, Lt. Colonel Glen Fisher, and put together a presentation for him on his 98th birthday! 
         Lt. Colonel Fisher is a World War 2 veteran who has many military accomplishments.  These students set up an interview, with the help of the Prince of Peace Ladies Organization, with Mr. Fisher where they asked him many questions about his life and his military background.
         They then put together a slide show presentation and presented it to many residents and staff members at Jewell Place, along with the members of the Prince of Peace Ladies Organization.  During their presentation, Mr. Fisher was presented with a plaque to honor his service and accomplishments as a cake to celebrate his birthday.  A job well done by Zachary and Kira!

Letter from Father Chris

Dear Parishioners,

As we continue this year of Eucharistic Revival, we would like to invite you to grow closer to Jesus alongside fellow parishioners through the Jesus and the Eucharist study. This study was specifically designed for this Year of Parish Revival, and we will be joining many other parishes throughout the United States in participating in this small group study as we journey together through this three-year National Eucharistic Revival.

Each session is full of rich theological content, powerful testimonies, and unique and timely messages from individual bishops across the country. This is a great opportunity to dive more deeply into the richness of our Eucharistic faith.

This study will be a special time to grow in community within our parish as we walk this sacred year together, and we desire you to join us.

Please join us every Tuesday evening. We began on January 23rd but you can come any Tuesday. The final presentation will take place on March 4th. We will celebrate 5:30 Mass at Prince of Peace and begin immediately following Mass. Each program lasts approximately 2 hours. The video has two sections with discussions. Handouts will be made available, however you will need to bring a writing instrument. If you would like to bring a pillow for your back or sitting, please do. We want you to be as comfortable as possible. If you are unable to make it, but would like to participate, weekly Bible Study will be participating as well. These sessions will take place each Wednesday, January 24–March 5th, from 9:30-11:30 AM. Call the parish office for the location. You may also go to the Eucharistic Revival website and watch them from there,

It is my hope you will prayerfully consider attending. 

Yours in Christ,

Father Chris

SAVE the DATE: April 13th, 2024 for a one-day retreat using Bishop Barron materials on the Eucharist. Details will be announced at a later date. Please contact the office if you think you would like to attend so that we can get an idea about donuts, drinks, snacks etc.

Please join our Prince of Peace, the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, and the world as we celebrate a Eucharistic Revival. This began in the summer of 2022 and concluded in 2025.

Let us Pray
God our Father, it is through the perfect sacrifice of your Son that you offer to all abundance of new life in this present age.  We pray that where we experience loss in the life of Grace, you would pour out upon our Archdiocese the saving gifts conveyed through the most holy Body and Blood of your Son.  May His Eucharistic life consume us all and revive each of us into His one body and singular mission, welling up to eternal life.  We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and Holy Spirit, God forever and ever. Amen.
