Parish Life Center – Community Building Event Ideas

With the intercession of Mary Queen of Peace, living our mission on a day-to-day basis requires all of us to commit to “foster a welcoming atmosphere that unites and brings each individual closer to Christ through sacred liturgy, social outreach, faith formation and the parish school”.

Listed below are some ways we can live out our mission in ways that help our parish and greater community.
