Looking for fellow parents who are interested in helping re-establish a children's liturgy during the 10:30 am mass. We're looking to compile a team of 4 or 5 folks with hopes of having things up and running for the first week of October.

Please reach out to Jo Styler at re@maryqueen.org and Kasey Cogan at kasey.cogan@gmail.com ASAP to express your interest! There is some paperwork to complete required before we start with children, so don't delay!
Ministry of Care is an important part of Mary Queen of Heaven
Parish. This ministry reaches out to those in the community who
are unable to attend Mass but desire a connection to God and
neighbor through Holy Communion.  During our visits we have the
opportunity to show God’s love and compassion by our presence
and support of the homebound as well as their family. We have
several trained ministers who are willing to take the time to reveal
the caring nature of our parish to those may feel cut off from the
community. Please look for the brochures in back of church for
contact information. Just look for the Big Red Heart on the

This Sunday is dedicated to Respect Life issues and efforts.  The theme of Respect Life Sunday this year is “Moved by Mercy,” and is built upon Pope Francis’ quote “We are called to show mercy because mercy has been shown to us.”  In this year of mercy, the Holy Father reminds us that God’s love is expressed through His mercy upon us. No matter how we have done in receiving that mercy, we are assured that God forgives us. Once forgiven, we are then sent to care for others by being merciful to them. What better expression of being merciful is there than respecting the lives of others, knowing that, as the Pope reminds us, each person “has a place in God’s heart from all eternity.” May God help you to treat each person with merciful love and respect that affirms the gift of his or her life.

Fr. Jason

Dear God,
we see life cheapened every day
through abortion and other forms of abuse,
through terrorism, and other acts of violence,
and through neglect of children, the poor, and the elderly.
In a world of plenty, we can forget
that there is nothing more precious than human life.
Give us the grace to see how we can make a difference,
and encourage change in our culture.
When we are discouraged,
remind us of the Catholic monk Telemachus
who stopped the gladiator games with an act of charity.
Inspire us with the stories of Mary
and other mothers of unexpected pregnancies,
who knew that every child is a gift of God's grace
and is wanted by you in this world.
Encourage conviction in the hearts of those
who do not yet know or understand
that a desire for choice is no reason to end any life
and that you desire that all life
come only to a natural end in you.
