our story

Mary Chapel & Main Church Drone Campus.JPG


"Whom are you looking for?" Jesus asked this important question (Jn 18:7) because each of us, in some way, is seeking a treasure (Matthew 13:44). And that treasure is not a What, but a Who: the very person of Jesus Christ. 
Prince of Peace is a Catholic Christian community of people who are hungry and seeking. We live in the awareness that the Church is not a hotel for saints; it is a hospital for sinners. If you have your act together, know all the answers and have no struggles or burdens in your life, then we won’t know what to do with you.
If, on the other hand, you are a sinner in need of forgiveness, we have a place for you.
If you are broken, and in need of healing, we have a place for you.
If you have questions or doubts, even about God, we have a place for you.
If you are hungry spiritually or physically, we have a place for you.
If you are seeking God or struggling to grow closer to him, that’s why we are here.
Our church is open daily for prayer and the worship of God.
Our offices are open seven days a week to assist you on your faith journey.
We don’t have all the answers, but we’re willing to seek them out with you.
The Catholic Church was not founded two years ago or two hundred years ago. It comes directly from the hands of Jesus, through the lives of his apostles. We have revealed beliefs that do not change. And yet, in every age, we discover new ways to live our faith, and fresh eyes with which to see it. Every one of us is on a journey, and everyone who is seeking is welcome here.
Welcome to Prince of Peace. Together let’s find God in one another’s journeys and each other’s hearts.

Since 1971, Prince of Peace Catholic Community has striven to actively extend a warm welcome to all who have come to our doorsteps looking for a place of worship, a faith community to call home. 

Currently, POP has over 9,500 registered households and continues to be one of the largest, most diverse, multicultural Roman Catholic communities in the Galveston-Houston Archdiocese. We intend to be a beacon of worship, hope, and service to all now, and for many years to come.
