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!
