Groups and Organizations
Our Lady, Queen of Peace Church
Our Lady, Queen of Peace Parish children’s activities foster a closer relationship between the toddlers and children [through fifth grade] of our parish and Jesus Christ by inviting these young people to enter more deeply into the life and mission of the Church. This ministry includes monthly kids fests and events such as roller skating, sled riding/tubing and swimming. Friends and new faces are always welcome! If you are interested in participating in our children’s activities please call Father Vincent at (724) 478-4958.
Ministry of Mothers
Our parish's MOMS Group is for mother-to-be and mothers of newborns through school-age children. The purpose of the group is both spiritual and social. The moms meet monthly. Moms may bring their child(ren) to the meeting along with a few toys and/or snacks for their own child, or they may leave the child(ren) with a sitter. All moms are welcome to attend. For additional information please call Father Vincent at (724) 478-4958.
Under the special patronage of Mary, the Mother of Sorrows, Christian Mothers are encouraged joyously to undertake the important task of training and sanctifying the young souls entrusted to their care. They are instructed with ways to edify one another by word and deed, to support one another by fervent prayer and in this way become the mainstay of the spiritual life within their own family, and a fruitful source of blessing to the community in which they live. Our parish Christian Mothers organization gathers monthly for the recitation of the Rosary, Mass and a meeting. The members support one another in prayer and are a vital part of the life of the parish through their charitable and social ministry. To learn more about the Christian Mothers call Patty Murdock at (724) 568-3409.
Young Adult Ministry
Our parish schedules numerous events for the young adults of our faith community. These events provide the young adults with an opportunity to grow in faith, to stay connected to the parish, and to meet new people that are around the same age. These gatherings include monthly Tapping Theology sessions, kayaking on the Kiskiminetas River, cornhole games, etc. All young adults of our parish are welcome to attend. To learn more about this program call Father Vincent at (724) 478-4958.
