Meet Father David A. Lemkuhl
In his own words...
Both of my parents were raised in Cincinnati -my mother from an urban area and my father from a farm.
I was the firstborn and remained the only child for nine and a half years. The age span from me to my youngest sibling is fifteen years. I went to Catholic schools from first grade all the way through high school, then attended seminary.
All in my family were very supportive of my decision to become a priest. I was in an environment very conducive to growing in faith, sharing faith and prayer.
I entered College Seminary straight from high school and after achieving a BA degree in philosophy, and four years of Theology was ordained for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. I also took the MA Biblical Studies program.
I was an associate priest for ten years in three different parishes in Cincinnati Ohio. I was pastor of two urban parishes in Dayton Ohio for six years. Then I became an associate priest of the Maryknoll Fathers for eight years, working overseas in Kenya, Africa for six and a half years, which ended in late November 2002. i returned to the Archdiocese of Cincinnati in time to celebrate my twenty-fifth anniversary as a priest - quite a joyous celebration!
Developing Faith and Leadership at Prince of Peace
The school community welcomes families who share in the spirit of prayer, service, and respect for one another. All students at Prince of Peace study and learn about the Catholic faith. Students benefit from religious classes that:
† Describe and define Catholic beliefs
† Allow students to question, discuss and explore how faith sustains each of us
† Help students develop their own inner foundation of faith
Students at Prince of Peace thrive in a climate based on the principles of peace and cooperation. Building on the message of peace taught by Christ, students study the fundamentals of leadership and have many opportunities to practice, and demonstrate their emerging leadership skills. Prince of Peace Catholic School is supported by St. Margaret of Cortona, St. John Vianney and St. Anthony Parishes.
