The Mass and Sacraments are celebrated at Prince of Peace in the Ordinary and Extraordinary Forms of the Roman Rite. Prince of Peace enjoys a leadership role in Upstate South Carolina as the only parish which celebrates Mass regularly in two forms and in two languages, English and Latin. The parish has been featured on The New Liturgical Movementblog for its commitment to restoring the sacred in worship.
Adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament began in 2005 with the Guild of St Thomas Aquinas. Please consider signing up for an hour of quiet prayer in front of Our LORD present in the Holy Eucharist. Prince of Peace is a House of Prayer for All People. Twenty-four hours and day, seven days a week, you will find men, women and children in prayer.
