Peace Pole

St. Mary’s Peace Pole was donated in memory of Gaylord Lupkes by his wife Patti.

A Peace Pole is a hand-crafted monument that displays the message and prayer Holy Peace Prevail on Earth on each of its four sides, in different languages. There are tens of thousands of Peace Poles in 180 countries all over the world dedicated as monuments of peace. They serve as constant reminders for us to visualize and pray for world peace. The four languages on our Peace Pole are: English, Spanish, German, Aramaic (the language of Jesus).


Money Counters

We are in need of a few more money counters. It only takes a few minutes after Mass. Please contact Keith Galpin at 847-3177
