Thank you for the generous donation of €6,673 for East Africa on 22 & 23 July 2017

We are very happy with the very generous response in Our Lady Queen of Peace to Archbishop Diarmuid Martin's appeal for support of the National Church collection for Trócaire relief in East Africa.
 
The appalling situation facing the people has reached a critical stage. There are severe food shortages in South Sudan, Somalia, Kenya and Ethiopia brought about by drought and conflict.
 
Over half the population of Somalia (6.2 million people) is experiencing food shortages and malnutrition. There have also been major outbreaks of cholera across the country.  South Sudan is on the brink of famine, with drought and conflict affecting millions. Millions of people in south-eastern Ethiopia and northern Kenya are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance.
 
On behalf of Irish Catholics, Trócaire is doing all it possible can – currently helping over 150,000 people across the region with emergency food, water and sanitation.

Solemn Mass honouring St Josemaría Escrivá on Monday 26 June 2017 at 8pm

On Monday 26 June, Fr Justin Gillespie, Opus Dei's vicar for Ireland celebrated a Solemn Mass in Our Lady Queen of Peace - on the Feastday of St Josemaría Escrivá, Founder of Opus Dei, who died on that day in 1975.

A large congregation, which included many families with young children, braved the rain to honour St Josemaría. One parishioner commented that he had arrived for the Mass, quite tired from work, and that the beauty of the liturgy had lifted both his energies and his spirit.
 
 
The homily given by Fr Justin can be downloaded below.

We are very grateful to the Religious Sisters of Charity for allowing us to use their beautiful chapel.
 
We wished to honour Our Lord in the Blessed Eucharist and live out these words of St John Paul II:

Our faith in the God who took flesh in order to become our companion along the way needs to be everywhere proclaimed, especially in our streets and homes, as an expression of our grateful love and as an inexhaustible source of blessings. (Mane nobiscum Domine, 7 October 2004, no. 18)

What does Jesus do when he walks with us? Louder! First: he helps us. He leads us! Very good. He walks with us, he helps us, he leads us and he teaches us to journey on. [...]

YES to LIFE briefing meeting, Our Lady Queen of Peace, Tue 21 February 2017 at 8pm

This briefing session provided information on how to get involved in a parish-based pro-life initiative. Very helpful support was given on articulating pro-life views with compassion and factual clarity, together with well-presented documentation with background information.
 
YES to LIFE aims to facilitate as many one-to-one personal conversations as posssible about the right to life and the 8th Amendment. So, this is a chance to become involved in a nationwide effort to protect life.
 
People have genuine questions about how we, as a society, can provide compassionate and truly progressive answers to women and their unborn babies, especially those facing unexpected pregnancies.
