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.

All who are thirsty, come to refresh your spirit as we seek our baptismal call to Holiness……
Are we truly living out our baptismal call with a contrite heart to Love our Neighbor? For just as a body without a spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead ~ James 2:26. All are welcome as we join together, with a merciful heart, in this monthly Faith Sharing Group. We will come together as the body of Christ to embrace the “Works of Mercy” and discuss how we can reach out to the poor, the hungry, the sick and the sorrowful. Please join us in La Salette Hall on Thursday, August 28th from 7:00-8:30 PM. Please contact Terri Kettle at 713-560-4503 or email@example.com for more information.
