Together we are a community of faith. When one suffers we all are affected. Support Groups provide a safe and caring environment on the path to healing and wholeness.

Prince of Peace offers several support groups to help us all tend to our spirituality needs, maintain our health and cope with illnesses, traumas, losses, and life transitions by integrating body, mind and spirit. Groups are led by trained facilitators with expertise in each area of support.
