If I take the wings of the dawn, if I settle at the farthest limits of the sea,

Even there your hand shall guide me, and your right hand hold me fast.

Psalms 139:9-10

 

The Honor Our Heroes Committee at Prince of Peace Catholic Community is dedicated to serving those who have answered the call to duty to ensure the citizens of our nation can live their lives and raise their children in freedom and peace.  We honor their commitment and courage.  We find ways to show appreciation to all members of the Armed Forces, past and present.  We strive to maintain awareness of their needs and pray for those actively serving around the world and for their families.  If you are looking for a volunteer opportunity that makes a difference and supports very worthy individuals, or just for more information, please contact Susie Anderssen at susiea75093@verizon.net or Marianna Thiebaud at masearst2@icloud.com
