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. See 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!

Mission Sunday: 20 October 2019

The Holy Father has announced October 2019 as the Extraordinary Month of Mission (EMM2019), an extra-special month of prayer and action to help strengthen and grow God’s Mission and the Church.

 
Aims of EMM
  1. To encourage Catholics into a deeper relationship with Jesus through prayer.
  2. To look to, and learn from, the actions and sacrifices made by our saints, martyrs and living missionaries.
  3. To rediscover and renew our understanding of overseas mission (ad gentes).
  4. To financially support overseas mission
The Extraordinary Month of Mission and World Mission Sunday complement each other, with Mission Sunday responding to the fourth aim of EMM2019, 'To financially support overseas mission'.
The Theme of Mission Sunday is 'Together We Are Mission'.

Annual Mass for the Deceased of the Parish, Sunday, 3 November 2019 at 12 noon

The month of November is traditionally the time of year when Church liturgy invites us to pray for all those who have passed from this world. It is a particular duty in charity to remember deceased family and friends at this time.

The 12 noon Mass on Sunday, 3 November 2019 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 will also include those who have no one to remember them.

9pm Mass with a Youth Focus, Sunday 3 November 2019

Pope Francis has been encouraging all of us to listen to and encourage youth. In his Apostolic Exhortation following the 2018 Synod on Youth, he wrote:


"We cannot just say that young people are the future of our world. They are its present; even now, they are helping to enrich it”.
(Christus Vivit, 64)

In  response to the Holy Father's invitation, we have begun a fresh initiative called 9pm Mass with a Youth Focus. All youth are welcome. Several have volunteered already to take part in the liturgy by greeting people as they enter the church, by reading at Mass or by participating in the Choir.
 
Some light refreshments will be offered after Mass in the Tea Room (on the LHS of the main porch as you exit). All welcome.

Relationships Enrichment: Sessions for engaged and recently married couples.

The next meeting is being planned for Monday 4 November (TBC). For more information, contact Fr James at 086-107 2930. 
 
 
Our most recent gathering was on Monday 30 September at 8pm. A few ideas from the podcast Jay Shetty interviews his wife for the first time were discussed. Themes included where to meet the person you love, different love languages and how to balance family commitments and personal priorities. 
 
On Sunday 25 August after 12 noon Mass, we met to mark the first anniversary of Pope Francis' encounter with couples in St Mary's Pro-Cathedral during World Meeting of Families in 2018. It was a very happy occasion with a variety of dishes, plenty of chat and a fun quiz afterwards.

Relationships Enrichment meets regularly, usually on Mondays, in the Upper Room of Our Lady Queen of Peace Church. We draw on the teaching of the Catholic Church, as well as on the help and advice of experienced married couples.

Adoration for Children: 4-5pm, Saturday, 9 November 2019

The next monthly session of Adoration for Children will take place from 4 - 5pm on Saturday, 9 November.
Date for your diary:14 December.
 
 
The format is:
  • Short talk given by a parent (younger children meanwhile colour holy pictures)
  • Period of Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament (around 10 minutes), with brief reflections and prayers led by a parent. There are gaps to permit the children to speak to Jesus in their own words.
  • Refreshments and Games
I recommend that priests, religious men and women, as well as lay people, continue and intensify their efforts to make the younger generation aware of the meaning and value of adoration and Eucharistic devotion. How can young people know the Lord if they are not introduced into the mystery of his presence? 
St John Paul II,  28 May 1996
