A Clear Path to a New Parish Center: Part 2

A few weeks ago, I wrote to you about the responsibility we all have to be well-informed of where we stand in the rebuilding of our new parish center and how important it is to speak accurately and honestly, so we don’t spread contradictory or confusing information. After all, this is everyone’s project and everyone’s new home. It is essential to know the true facts about our parish center building project, and avoid that negative and confusing talk that only serves to discourage and put roadblocks to a beautiful and successful faith work God is blessing so much!  ...

May our Blessed Mother’s intercession help us be always One Community in Christ

It is certainly a joyous time here at Queen of Peace as we prepare to celebrate our feast day this Tuesday, the Memorial of the Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary. As the mother of Jesus, king of kings, Mary is the Queen of Heaven and Earth. This feast day was proposed by Pope Pius XII so“that all may recognize more clearly and venerate more devoutly the merciful and motherly sovereignty of her who bore God in her womb” (Ad Coeli Reginam, Pope Pius XII).

A CLEAR PATH TO OUR NEW PARISH CENTER

Here at Queen of Peace, our parish family is very much in a similar transition. Our Religious Education, RCIA, marriage preparation classes, youth ministry, Friends of St. Adrew and more will be back in session in a few days or weeks. Ministries that took a break during the summer will soon start meeting again. The great expectation for what is to come comes in the Lord’s promise of our new parish center!

DISCIPLESHIP OF FAITH & PRAYER COMMITMENT WEEKEND: FAITH & PRAYER BRING US TO EXPERIENCE THE TRANSFIGURED LORD IN OUR DAILY LIVES

This weekend the Church celebrates the Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord. “Jesus took Peter, James, and his brother, John, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. And he was transfigured before them” (Mt 17:1-2). This event calls the disciples to move forward in their faith journey with Jesus, to grow closer to Him, to experience his true identity, and to know Him better.
