Let’s get rolling

There are so many details to remember when planning an event. That’s why we’ve made it easier to submit communication requests for the bulletin, e-news, presider’s announcement, LED signs, social media, website, and more. You don’t have to remember multiple deadlines to get your message out. Submit your request, and we’ll work on the rest.

For questions or ideas, contact Rebecca Waltz, our Communications Director, at communications@pophouston.org.

We have many different tools to share your message, but if you don’t need them all, just fill out the options you are requesting and ignore the rest. Since we are a large parish, and space in our communications is limited, all requests may not be published. Our Communications Ministry may edit text and images to fit Prince of Peace guidelines. Please be sure a staff member has booked the event before submitting your communication request.
