Palm Sunday

What kind of faith footprint are you leaving?
-Fettered vs. unfettered: Are you free to make large strides in your faith and follow Jesus?
-Surface vs. deep
-Sand vs. cement: washing away with the tide or lasting for others to follow?
-Alone or with Jesus?
-Following distractions or God’s GPS?
-Showing growth?
What is the total amount of (fruits of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control) generated by my actions?

Fifth Sunday of Lent


“Your beliefs become your thoughts,
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny.”

― Gandhi

Hello, my name is Elizabeth Ockunzzi and I wanted to introduce myself as the new Youth Minister here at Prince of Peace! I live in Wadsworth with my husband Zach and our two children, John and Cora. I graduated from Franciscan University, earning a degree in Theology with the desire to work in youth ministry. I’m honored and thrilled to join this vibrant parish in ministering to the youth of our Church!

Youth ministry is so important in the life of a parish. Adolescence is such a formative time in one’s life, and while parents are the primary educators for their children’s faith, it’s also important for teens to have and be a part of a community in the Church. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has outlined three main goals of youth ministry that truly show why this community is so important. The goals are to empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today; to draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission and work of the Catholic faith community; and to foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person. Youth ministry at Prince of Peace will be a safe place for teens to come and grow in their relationship with Christ, while also providing families resources to help further this mission.

I am excited to meet everyone at Prince of Peace and look forward to being a part of this community! Please reach out to me with any questions you may have, if you want to inquire about opportunities to help minister to our youth, or if you are interested in getting your high schooler registered for youth group.
