Prince of Peace is a great church. And it is big – the buildings and the number of parishioners. It has a lot of different things to offer to all ages, ethnicity and preferred activities. The best way to really get to appreciate this Catholic Community is to participate in one or more of the following: several bible study opportunities, International Festival, women’s and men’s prayer breakfasts and retreats, movie nights, concerts, golf tournaments, parish cruises, pilgrimages to Rome or the Holy Land. You can also be of service by helping to distribute food and Christmas presents to those in need, sign up for an hour of adoration before the Blessed Sacrament, serve as a liturgical minister (Usher, Eucharistic Minister, etc.), or go on a mission trip to Guatemala. No matter who you are, you are bound to find something that will help you develop a closer relationship with God while making new friends and serving others.
WHAT A GREAT SCHOOL!!! We are soooo excited there is a middle school now! St. Rose holds up to its mission of educating the entire youth - mind, body and spirit. So nice to have our children educated not only academically but spiritually, too! St. Rose challenges the students to "do more" - academically and spiritually. I have children in elementary and middle school - all are getting a top notch education! The teachers are truly preparing the students for excellence by expecting more out of them. The Fine Arts program is out of this world, too! The art my children come home with are truly masterpieces! The band program is awesome, too! I am so proud of what my children have accomplished and happy to have made some true friends along the way - I'm so glad that St. Rose was a part of it all!!
Probably what I like most of all that St. Thomas offers is the diverse atmosphere which is great. They help make my kids feel like they are part of the community and the teachers are very warm and welcoming. They do a good job at keeping parents involved and informers too. I have helped with the athletics- coaching and the parents (wb & PTO). I am never worried about what is going on at the school because the teachers really have their best interest in the children and parents at heart. I feel it is very safe and I have no complaints to the safety or the disciplinary policies. I like how if I have a question and I email them they get back to me in a timely manor, very prompt and just great communication which makes it a better experience for even the parent.
