"Through the guidance of the Blessed Mother, we strive to help others to know, love and serve our God and each other."

Pastor's Corner: From the Desk of Fr. Dennis Schmidt...      

Dear friends in Christ,

Welcome to Our Lady Queen of Peace, in House Springs, Missouri.


We are a faith-filled community — a place for you not only to worship, but also to deepen your faith, get to know others, and make a difference in our local community.


Traditionally, the Easter Season is a season of welcoming into the church through the sacraments.  As we witnessed at the Easter Vigil we welcomed five adults from our RCIA program into the church through the sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation. 


Not only did we welcome these individuals into the Church; in a few weeks, we will also be celebrating 17 Candidates reaffirming their baptismal promise in the sacrament of Confirmation.  And this weekend, our parish will celebrate the sacrament of First Holy Communion for 16 students.  What a wonderful time it is for our parish and our Catholic faith.  Please pray for these children and their families.


 First Holy Communion is this Sunday, April 18th at 2pm.  Because of spacing concerns, attendance is limited to close family and friends of our students (invite only). We will stream this mass on our YouTube channel for others to join in the Eucharistic celebration.


During this month of April, Pope Francis asks us to join him in prayer for Fundamental Rights.

We pray for those who risk their lives while fighting for fundamental rights under dictatorships, authoritarian regimes and even in democracies in crisis.


You are welcome to join us for Masses in person, but remember that we are following the Archdiocese guidelines of social distance and the wearing of Masks.  Remember we are streaming masses on our YouTube channel and for “overflow purposes” we can seat individuals in the cafeteria to watch the Mass on our big screen if necessary.


God Bless,

Fr. Dennis

Year of St. Joseph: Consecration to St. Joseph

March 30 - May 1 

Pope Francis declared this year as THE YEAR OF ST. JOSEPH. Also Saint Joseph is the Patron of the Universal Church as decreed on Dec. 8, 1870, by Pope Pius IX.  With both of these in mind we offer this opportunity to consecrate yourself to St. Joseph. 

This is a great opportunity to strengthen your relationship with Saint Joseph.

If you missed the chance to sign up for the daily emails, here is a PDF with all 33 days of readings and meditations for the Consecration to St. Joseph. 33 Day Consecration to St. Joseph
