Welcome to Our Lady Queen of Peace Parish!

Apart from providing useful information about the parish, its groups and the various activities, it is our desire to use this website to share our faith with you, providing resources and links for faith development, both personal and family.

We also want to facilitate piety and prayer and hope you will find the Daily Mass Readings (with commentary) helpful.

Since 2008, priests of the Opus Dei Prelature have been entrusted with the pastoral care of Our Lady Queen of Peace. We have included a Daily Message taken from the writings of St Josemaría, Founder of Opus Dei, which gives some insights into his charism.

We would appreciate your feedback. God bless you and please visit us often!

Parish Corpus Christi Procession, Sunday 29 May 2016, 3-5pm

Our parish Corpus Christi procession (the first for many years) will take place on Sunday 29 May.
 
It will commence in Our Lady Queen of Peace at 3pm and then proceed along the Merrion Road to St Mary's Church in Elm Park. Following a station there the procession will return along the Merrion Road back to Our Lady Queen of Peace for the final part of our liturgy.
 
We are very grateful to the Religious Sisters of Charity for allowing us to use their beautiful chapel.
 
All are welcome to join our procession, as we honour Our Lord in the Blessed Eucharist and live out these words of St John Paul II:
Our faith in the God who took flesh in order to become our companion along the way needs to be everywhere proclaimed, especially in our streets and homes, as an expression of our grateful love and as an inexhaustible source of blessings. (Mane nobiscum Domine, 7 October 2004, no. 18)

Warmest congratulations to the 20 students of St Michael's College who made their First Holy Communion in Our Lady Queen of Peace on Saturday 7 May 2016.

 

 

We invite them to reflect on these words of Pope Francis to a group of first communicants on 26 May 2013

What does Jesus do when he walks with us? Louder! First: he helps us. He leads us! Very good. He walks with us, he helps us, he leads us and he teaches us to journey on. [...]

Students from Kianda School sang at 12 noon Mass on Sunday 17 April 2016

The liturgy of our 12 noon Mass on Sunday 17 April was enhanced by the beautiful hymns sung in Kiswahili by a choir from Kianda School in Nairobi. The girls were on a two-week exchange programme with Rosemont School in Sandyford. The previous week they made a much appreciated visit to St Mary's Centre Nursing Home nearby on Merrion Road. There they met residents in the Loyola House Nursing Unit and sang for them.
 
 
Words of hymns with English translation here.
(Note: Beginning of first hymn not in video)
 
Fr Fergus had been an assistant chaplain in Kianda for 2 years in 2004-2005 and it brought back many happy memories.
