    • 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.

      The Holiday Season, a Special Time for Families!
       
      As we begin to focus on our parish theme statement, a year dedicated to the family, we remember that our Mary Queen Family is … a circle of strength: founded in faith, joined in love, reconciled in God.   What better way to begin to live out this theme than by reflecting on the faith, hope and love shown to us by the Holy Family!
       
      St. Pope John Paul II, who has been called “The Pope of the Family” because of his insights and teachings in the area of pastoral care for families, has stated:
       
      “The message that comes from the Holy Family is first of all a message of faith. The family of Nazareth is a home that truly centers on God.  For Mary and Joseph, this choice of faith becomes concrete in their service to the Son of God entrusted to their care, but it is also expressed in their mutual love, rich in spiritual tenderness and fidelity.
       
      “As at the crib, in a glance of faith, we embrace together the divine Child and the persons beside him: his most holy Mother and Joseph …
      * A light of mercy and salvation for the whole world,
      * A light of truth for every person for the human family and for individual families.
      * How lovely it is for spouses to be reflected in the Virgin Mary and her husband Joseph! 
      * How comforting for parents, especially if they have a small baby! 
      * How enlightening for engaged couples, struggling with their plans for life! 
       
      “Take the family of Nazareth as your example. Although called to an incomparable mission, it traveled the same path as you do, amid joys and sufferings, prayer and work, hopes and distressing trials, while always rooted in fidelity to God’s will.”
       
      Let us now as a parish family begin to follow these thoughts of The Pope of the Family … and have recourse to Our Lady, Queen of Families and Mother of Hope, in these weeks and months to follow!
