Welcome to Our Lady Queen of Peace Parish!

Apart from providing useful information about the parish, its groups and the various activities, it is our desire to use this website to share our faith with you, providing resources and links for faith development, both personal and family.

We also want to facilitate piety and prayer and hope you will find the Daily Mass Readings (with commentary) helpful.

Since 2008, priests of the Opus Dei Prelature have been entrusted with the pastoral care of Our Lady Queen of Peace. We have included a Daily Message taken from the writings of St Josemaría, Founder of Opus Dei, which gives some insights into his charism.

We would appreciate your feedback. God bless you and please visit us often!

YOUCAT Study Group, Tuesdays 8-9pm (began on 4 October 2016)

There has been a good turn out for our study sessions on the YOUCAT, a catechism produced for young people that ‘speaks of our own destiny and so deeply engages every one of us’ (Benedict XVI, Foreword to YOUCAT).

ALL OF US have big questions:    
  • Why did God create us?
  • How can we describe heaven?
  • What does the fall of Adam and Eve have to do with us?
  • Did God will the death of his only Son?
  • Can I be a Christian without believing in Christ’s resurrection?
  • Why does God want there to be a church? 
YOUCAT has the answers. (See useful links)
YOU are invited to CATCH up by joining our YOUCAT study group every Tuesday, 8-9pm. Even if you have missed the first sessions, it is still possible to join the group.

The 12.00 noon Mass on Sunday, 6 November 2016 will be offered for all those we love who have gone before us and especially for members of our parish who have died during the past year. We also include those who have no one to remember them.



Tuesday Cuppa and Chat for Mothers and Babies, after 10am Mass

Pope Francis has placed the Family high on his agenda of pastoral outreach. At Our Lady Queen of Peace we want to make parents and their young children feel very welcome in our church.
Dads are welcome too!
