    • WELCOME TO MARY QUEEN CATHOLIC CHURCH - Founded in Faith, Joined in Love, Reconciled in God

      The priests that serve Mary Queen are Missionaries of Our Lady of La Salette.  Founded on the message and inspiration of Mary's apparition at La Salette, our ministry is to help people respond to the grace of reconciliation through faith in Jesus Christ, especially those people who are alienated or estranged.  Wherever we minister, we make this message known to all God's people.  Click here to learn more about the Missionaries of Our Lady of La Salette.

      Our Blessed Mother, Our Lady of La Salette, appeared to two children on the top of a mountain in the Alps of southeastern France, near the hamlet of La Salette on September 19, 1846.  The first of the series of apparitions which include those of Lourdes and Fatima, her message was an invitation to live the message of her Son, Jesus.  Her parting words to the children were: "Well, my children, make this known to all my people."  Mary's apparition at La Salette is a modern day reminder of an ancient truth; that Mary constantly intercedes for us before God; that she is the Reconciler of Sinners, calling us back to the message and way of her Son, Jesus.

      Fr. Jim Announces our 2015
      Parish Theme … The Family!

       
      Our Mary Queen Family is a circle of strength:
      Founded in Faith, Joined in Love,
      Reconciled in God!
       
       
      I am pleased to share the above “theme statement” with you for our Mary Queen parish community for reflection and action during the coming year, beginning with the Season of Advent.
       
      This “theme statement” is rooted in the recently completed Extraordinary Synod of Bishops on the theme of the pastoral challenges facing the family in the context of evangelization. The word ‘synod’ means a walk or a journey together. This journey explored the problems facing the family today, and focused on the great joy of family life and the importance of marriage at its heart. In his closing words at the Synod, Pope Francis said: “Now we still have one year to mature, with spiritual discernment, the proposed ideas and find concrete solutions to so many difficulties and challenges that families confront.” May that maturity mark our own proposals and pastoral activity around family life in the course of the coming year.
       
      Within our Parish, what has emerged from conversations and sharing within the community, is a statement or description of who we see ourselves to be: “Our Mary Queen Family is a circle of strength: founded in faith, joined in love, reconciled in God.” This statement positively affirms a vision for what our pastoral life should be in the course of the coming year. I personally pray that our reflection, discernment and actions will increasingly shape our attitudes towards each other, within our family life, and in our own parish life.
       
      Each and every member of this parish is an important part of our parish family, where each individual helps to make up the circle of strength.  So at the beginning of Advent, on Sunday, November 30th, we invite all families, and individual members of our parish family to join with us for a Parish Advent Program of prayer and activity, friendship and refreshments. We will be decorating wreaths and enjoying each other’s company to remind us that we are a community of faith, love and reconciliation. Watch for more details in the parish bulletin.
       
      May the Lord accompany us and guide us on our journey together.
       
      Fr. Jim 

       
      Fr. Jim, Fr. Benny, Fr. Moe, Fr. Lamartine, Deacon Paul, Deacon Darrell and the Staff of Mary Queen Parish wish all our members and neighbors a Blessed Thanksgiving. As we remember to count our many blessings, let us remember the less fortunate in our daily prayers.
       
      THANKSGIVING PRAYER
      Lord, we thank you
      for the goodness of our people
      and for the spirit of justice
      that fills this nation.
      We thank you for the beauty and fullness of the
      land and the challenge of the cities.

      We thank you for our work and our rest,
      for one another, and for our homes.
      We thank you, Lord:
      accept our thanksgiving on this day.
      We pray and give thanks through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
