Pastor's Corner: From the Desk of Fr. Dennis Schmidt...      

Dear Friends in Christ,

 

Welcome!  Our Lady Queen of Peace (OLQP) is a parish that serves the local community of House Springs and we have a thriving parish family of over 800 households.  We are here as a place to worship, to help you grow in your faith, get to know others, and make a difference. 

 

If you are sick and homebound, please call the parish to inform the priest concerning any sick or aged member who will not be able to attend weekend Masses, so that we can add their name on our Communion calls list. 

A little prayer
Help me to live my life in a way that glorifies you, Lord. Give me the strength to be a blessing in someone else's life today, and grant me the opportunity to lead others into the freedom that can be found in knowing Christ.

 

God Bless,
Fr. Dennis

Pastor


Please continue to pray for Pastor Dennis Schmidt as he works through his medical problems.  In his absence, we have been working closely with the St. Louis Archdiocese to cover the masses and other upcoming events.

Our daily masses Monday through Friday at 8:00 a.m. will be a Communion Service lead by OLQP Deacons. There are other masses at neighboring churches that are available for those preferring a mass. Check out their mass schedules on their websites:

Most Sacred Heart Parish Eureka
St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church* High Ridge
St. Bridget of Kildare     Pacific

Our Lady Queen of Peace weekend masses will continue to be at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. on Sundays.  We are very fortunate to have priests that can cover for Fr. Dennis. Parishioners who receive OLQP emails will be notified if a scheduled priest unexpectedly is not able to celebrate a mass due to an illness, etc. so that you will be able to attend a neighboring Catholic church.
