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.
Advent is a time of waiting for the coming of the Savior and a time of preparation. We have been gifted with four weeks to prepare our waiting souls for the birth of Jesus, The Greatest Gift we could ever receive. Let’s use these weeks to prepare for what we will actually receive with the birth of Christ: Hope, Love, Joy and Peace.

The Spiritual Gifts Inventory can help you determine which spiritual gifts you have been blessed with and are challenged to use in living out your baptismal call to build up the Kingdom of God. It will take approximately 15-20 minutes to take the inventory but a whole lifetime to use your spiritual gifts. There are 115 statements that assess your gifts in twenty-three different areas. Once your scores are totaled for each of the gifts, you will be presented with your spiritual gifts. You can then use the List of Spiritual Gifts to deepen your understanding of these gifts and how they might be used. We’ve provided a list of some of the parish ministries and activities that need each of the 23 gifts and encourage you to explore the possibilities of using your gifts in one of these ministries.
