"Through the guidance of the Blessed Mother, we strive to help others to know, love and serve our God and each other."



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


Dear Friends in Christ,


Welcome to Our Lady Queen of Peace (OLQP) Catholic Church of House Springs, MO.  We serve approximately 800 households in this community by worshipping together, growing in faith, getting to know each other, and making a difference in the lives of all we touch.  Our church is open for you to stop by and pray with the Lord.  Come to one of our Masses to pray with us or join us at one of the upcoming events. 

On June 19, 2022, the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, the United tates Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) launched a Eucharistic Revival initiative. The Bishops are calling for a three-year grassroots revival of devotion and belief in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. They believe that God wants to see a movement of Catholics across the United States, healed, converted, formed, and unified by an encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist—and sent out in mission “for the life of the world.” Over the next several years, the dioceses of the USA will recommit themselves to our Eucharistic identity and will reaffirm our faith in the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist. Please come and worship with us and receive the gift of the Holy Body and Blood of Christ.

And if you are sick and homebound, please call the parish to inform us if you are not able to attend weekend Masses. We will be happy to add your name on our Communion calls list and bring you Holy Communion at an agreed upon time.

Pray this Daily Prayer: 
Help me to live my life in a way that glorifies you, Lord. Give me the strength to be a blessing in omeone else's life today and grant me the opportunity to lead others into the freedom that can be found in knowing Christ.

Yours in Christ,

Fr. Dennis Schmidt
