The Our Lady of Peace Council was founded April 25, 1988 through the efforts of the parishioners. It was named after Pope Paul VI declared the Blessed Virgin Mary under the Our Lady of Peace title patron of El Salvador in an Apostolic Letter of October 10, 1966. In the parish church of St. Michael, in the City of San Salvador, there is an ancient statue of the Virgin Mary holding an olive branch which, according to some accounts, was brought there from a shipwreck. In September 1787, the inhabitants of the city attributed to the statue their safety when threatened by a volcanic eruption, and the Virgin has also been looked upon as a model of peace among warring factions in that country's times of troubles. The Cure' of Ars Our Lady of Peace Council carries on with the devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ in working closely with the Cure' of Ars Parish in Leawood, Kansas providing funds for various projects and with members being active participants in their parish community development.
