IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT:
 

September 17, 2020

Dear Friends,

 

         I and many members of the Prince of Peace Parish Office staff at 305 West State Street have been exposed to a person who has tested positive with no symptoms to the Coronavirus.  We have been in contact with Dr. Hossler at the Jefferson County Health Department and as a result of our exposure, we are all required for precautionary reasons to quarantine for 14 days.  As Pastor of Prince of Peace Parish, this means that I will be unavailable for pastoral ministry including weekday and weekend Masses through Friday, October 2nd. The weekends of September 19-20 and September 26-27 there will be Prayer and Communion Services lead by Deacon Mike Gardner at the already regular scheduled Mass times

 

This is for precautionary measures until further notice only.  There is no need at this time for those who have visited the parish office or been in contact with parish staff or me to be concerned.

 

The Prince of Peace Parish Office will be closed until Monday, October 5th.  If you need assistance with Pastoral Ministry in my absence, please call me on my cell phone at 812-801-5779 and I will refer you to others that can help you.  You may also email or call Mary Rose Carlow, Parish Administrative Assistant at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 812-701-2468 for parish questions.  If you have Parish or School Business related questions you may email Marty McClure at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call the parish office at 812-265-4166 and she will return your call. 

 

Please pray for the continued safety and good health of our parish community!
