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

Dear Friends in Christ,

 

 

Welcome!  

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. 

Mark Your Calendars!!
 
Traditional PSR meets on Monday evenings from 6:15-7:45, during the school year.
 
 
RCIA, RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION
Are you or anyone you know interested in exploring the Catholic faith? Would you be interested in learning more about the Catholic faith and possibly becoming a Catholic? We invite you to join our small group on Monday evenings beginning on Monday, September 13 at 6:45 pm in the Marian room. For more information or questions about the program, please contact Fr. Dennis at the parish office (636-671-3062).
 

Reminder to 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 his/her 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

From the Respect Life Apostolate

The Secretariat for Pro-Life Activities is imploring the activation of Catholics in response to government officials who are trying to force tax dollars to pay for abortions.  

The United States Council of Catholic Bishops ask we contact our local representatives and sign the online petition to congress to end taxpayer-funded abortions.

Liturgical Ministers

Interested in joining a liturgical ministry?

Welcome!  I invite all who want to be more involved in our parish, specifically our liturgical celebrations (Mass) to reach out to me or anyone within the parish office. 

Liturgical ministry is an excellent opportunity to fulfill your baptismal call of service to one another. We will help individuals see where their talents and gifts that God has given can be best served to their fullest extent. Whether participation is through “behind the scenes” preparation and planning or through a public role of service within the Mass (as proclaimers, Eucharistic ministers, ushers, cantors/choir members, adult servers or student servers), parishioners’ contributions help our liturgies to be truly life-giving celebrations. Please prayerfully consider joining one of these ministries.

If anyone is willing and able, and would like some additional training, we are able to set up individual training at mutually agreeable times/dates. Please contact the Parish Office at 636-671-0247.
