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.

"THE CHURCH ALIVE CAMPAIGN" - Video Clip
In October our Parish was selected by the Diocese of Pittsburgh to be part of the video reflecting on the fruits of "The Church Alive Campaign." Our Parish reached far past the target goal set by the Diocese, and we as a Parish can truly find comfort in the depth of our connection to Prince of Peace. This video was released several weeks ago, and can be viewed on the Diocese of Pittsburgh website at the link below.
Click on the video - this is a small clip from the Bishop which has aired on TV as a commercial. Once the video has completed, you will be taken to another screen. From there select the clip (square) titled "Our Campaign for the Church Alive." The full video is about 7 minutes.
