City Council Mask Update
The Springfield City Council on May 17 accepted the recommendation of the Springfield/Greene County Health Department to remove the mask mandate effective Thursday May 27 at 11:59 pm. As PoP has done throughout, we will continue to follow the guidance of local officials and remove the mask mandate for Prince of Peace on that date and time. However, if individuals, would like to continue to wear a mask, we respect your right to do so. (Brandon Messner, council president)

On this day we pray...
Loving God, Creator of all times and places, we thank you for the gift of summertime, the days of light, warmth and leisure. Thank you for the beauty that surrounds us everywhere we look: the multi-colored flowers, the deep blue of the sky, the tranquil surface of lakes, the laughter of children at play, people strolling in park, families gathered around picnic tables and the increased time to spend with family and friends.
As we open our eyes and ears to the landscape of nature and people, open our hearts to receive all as gift. Give us that insight to see you as the Divine Artist. Help us to realize and appreciate that you are laboring to keep all in existence. And warm our souls with the awareness of your presence. Let all the gifts we enjoy this summer deepen our awareness of you love so that we may share this with others and enjoy a summertime of re-creation. Amen. (Faith at Marquette University)
