"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!  Our Lady Queen of Peace (OLQP) Parish serves the local community of House Springs and is a thriving parish family of over 800 households.  We are a place to worship to help you grow in your faith, get to know others, and make a difference. Please stop by and pray with us and get to know us.


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


Our Lady, Queen of Peace, pray for us.


Lord God of peace, hear our prayer! We have tried so many times and over so many years to resolve our conflicts by our own powers and by the force of our arms. How many moments of hostility and darkness have we experienced? how much blood has been shed? how many lives have been shattered? how many hopes have been buried? But our efforts have been in vain.

Now, Lord, come to our aid! Grant us peace, teach us peace; guide our steps in the way of peace. Open our eyes and our hearts, and give us the courage to say: "Never again war!"; "With war everything is lost". Instill in our hearts the courage to take concrete steps to achieve peace. 

Lord, God of Abraham, God of the Prophets, God of Love, you created us and you call us to live as brothers and sisters. Give us the strength daily to be instruments of peace; enable us to see everyone who crosses our path as our brother or sister. Make us sensitive to the plea of our citizens who entreat us to turn our weapons of war into implements of peace, our trepidation into confident trust, and our quarreling into forgiveness. Keep alive within us the flame of hope, so that with patience and perseverance we may opt for dialogue and reconciliation. In this way may peace triumph at last, and may the words "division," "hatred," and "war" be banished from the heart of every man and woman.

Lord, defuse the violence of our tongues and our hands. Renew our hearts and minds, so that the word which always brings us together will be "brother," and our way of life will always be that of: Shalom, Peace, Salaam!
