Letter From The Pastor
Dear Parishioners,
This weekend we conclude the Christmas season with the Feast of the Lord’s Baptism in the Jordan. It
marks the beginning of Jesus’ public ministry. He was thirty years old. He died His redemptive death at
Golgotha when He was only thirty three. However, He also spent thirty years of life in what is called His
hidden years in Nazareth’s school, growing in wisdom and stature (Luke 2:52). These years were not hidden in
the sense of unimportant, but rather, it means that we do not find much about them in the Gospel accounts.
However, they are rich with meaning, revealing the deeper truths of our faith and its invitation to each one of us
who bear the name Christian. There is no doubt that even during those hidden years the plan, purpose and
redemptive implications of the entire saving life, death, and resurrection of Jesus were being manifested and
revealed. They reveal how the ordinary becomes extraordinary when lived in communion with God the Father.
Congratulations to Anthony Lopez, son of Louis and Tina Lopez and one of our 10:00 a.m. Mass altar
servers, who received the Sacrament of Confirmation on Saturday with his Eighth grade parochial class at St.
Stephen Catholic Church, Valrico. As primarily a senior community, we have a great deal of wisdom and
mature faith to share with the young people among us. Let’s be encouraged to give a good example of godly
living and faithful service so that they can in turn hand on the faith.
God’s blessing to you and your families – Father Kovanis

ADULT FAITH FORMATION
Each year preceding the World Meeting of Families, a preparatory catechism is created in order to underscore the
primary elements that will be addressed during the meeting. The preparatory catechism does not contain new
teaching, rather it emphasizes the Church’s established teachings that are most pertinent to the world’s issues at
that time. In anticipation of the 2015 conference, “The Family Fully Alive”, Prince of Peace will address one of
these ten catechetical themes each month. We will offer a study of the preparatory catechism in May. This study
requires advanced sign-up as we will need to order materials.
Additionally, our clergy will facilitate weekly small group discussions on the U.S. Bishops’ Pastoral Letter on
Marriage beginning in February. Registration for these small group discussions is capped at 12 married couples.
We hope you will join us in preparing for this special event and in affirming the Church’s teachings of family.
Other Parish-Sponsored Adult Faith Formation Opportunities:
January 17th, 12:00 p.m., Conesa Center – Women of Virtue continues with Diane Cerulli
January 20th, 12:30 - 1:30 p.m., Conesa Center – Gospel of Mark Bible study with Fr. Kovanis begins

Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those
who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as
sons.'1 This is 'the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God':'2
God has visited his people. He has fulfilled the promise he
made to Abraham and his descendants. He acted far beyond all
expectation - he has sent his own 'beloved Son'.3

pouring in every day, as were
the checks — some for many
hundreds of dollars! Our
shelves and freezers were
bursting with food, so we had
lots to share with our
neighbors.
“All of our volunteers join us
in thanking everyone who
helped. You know who you
are! We thank you for
