Prince of Peace Parish was founded on November 1, 1992, as a vivid and real response to the challenge of change on the South Side. Our Catholic roots run long and deep in the fertile grounds tilled by those who have gone before us. We are called to foster those precious seeds in the spirit of FAITH, HOPE, and LOVE.
