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

Dear friends in Christ,

Welcome!! As I mentioned in last week’s bulletin, our rollback of the pandemic safeguards is a work in progress.   
 
FOR OUR WEEKEND MASSES, Our Lady Queen of Peace is adopting the guidance from the Archdiocese, CDC and Jefferson County in the following manner:
 
According to the CDC and JeffCo Health Dept., the mask recommendation is now for those who have not been fully vaccinated for COVID-19.
 
- For the time being, we are continuing to use every other pew.  We are continuing to social distance in this manner.
 -You can sit wherever, and Families & friends are able to use individual pews to their max capacity. 
- As a precaution, all clergy and Eucharistic Ministers will continue to wear masks to distribute communion to the congregation, as recommended by the Archdiocese. 
 
All other guidelines from the Archdiocese are still in effect:
-The dispensation from attending mass issued by Archbishop Rozanski is still in effect.
- Still no choir until further notice.
-Still no Holy Water fonts until further notice.
-continue with the daily sanitizing of the Church area.
 
For our DAILY masses, we will follow the LATEST guidelines concerning mask wearing, but still sit in the main two aisles, socially distant as needed. 
 
Please continue to check our bulletin, website and e-blasts for updates.

With that in mind, We are in need of assistance in celebrating our weekend masses. I personally invite you to join our parish liturgical ministries. 

Think of which ministry suits you the best; Proclaimers, Eucharistic Ministers, Ushers, Cantors/Choir Members, Adult Servers or Student Servers.  Any and all parishioners’ contributions help our liturgies truly become a life-giving celebrations. Please prayerfully consider joining one of these ministries.

For student altar servers we also have our annual Server Camp scheduled for July 26-30 from 8:00am - 11:30am.  For more information, please read further below on the website.

If anyone is willing and able, and would like some additional training, we are able to set up individual training at mutually agreeable times/dates. Please contact John Bonsanti at 636-671-0247 or john.bonsanti@gmail.com

 

 

God Bless,
Fr. Dennis

Pastor

Liturgical Ministers

Interested in joining a liturgical ministry?

Welcome!  I invite all who want to be more involved in our parish, specifically our liturgical celebrations (Mass) to reach out to me or anyone within the parish office. 

Liturgical ministry is an excellent opportunity to fulfill your baptismal call of service to one another. We will help individuals see where their talents and gifts that God has given can be best served to their fullest extent. Whether participation is through “behind the scenes” preparation and planning or through a public role of service within the Mass (as proclaimers, Eucharistic ministers, ushers, cantors/choir members, adult servers or student servers), parishioners’ contributions help our liturgies to be truly life-giving celebrations. Please prayerfully consider joining one of these ministries.

If anyone is willing and able, and would like some additional training, we are able to set up individual training at mutually agreeable times/dates. Please contact John Bonsanti at 636-671-0247 or john.bonsanti@gmail.com
