Pastoral Care

Our ministries should also serve the members of our own congregation. Just as we show our love by addressing the needs of those outside of our congregation, we also show our love to those in our congregation who have physical, health, financial, or other difficulties. While these ministries are focused on the Prince of Peace community, they often serve those outside of the congregation as well.

  • The Daughters of the King (DOK) are a lay order devoted to a disciplined life based on prayer, evangelism and service. These women meet after the 10 am service weekly to pray for needs and thanksgivings requested by the congregation (prayer requests are available in the pews and collected with the offering). DOK members also attend the Community Dinners to pray with our guests. During the week, members participate in studies in faith and in living the faith.

  • On the last Saturday of the month, the Prayer Shawl meets to create a physical expression of God's love and presence for people who need that physical touch. The Prayer Shawls that they knit are shared with those who are ill, suffering loss, or in the midst of a life crises.

  • Prince of Peace volunteers provide a weekly religious service to patients at the Motion Picture Television Fund's Country Home & Hospital located here in Woodland Hills. The service consists of prayers, scripture and bible readings and some hymns. Currently, this ministry serves the memory care and assisted living units, but plans are for an expansion of services to the retirement community as well.

  • When parishoners find themselves unable to attend services due to illness, disability, age, hospitalization, or some other condition, a dedicated team of lay members and clergy goes to them. These visitors offer the afflicted conversation, comfort, and the eucharist where ever they are.
