Tuesday Cuppa and Chat for Mothers and Babies, after 10am Mass

Bambinelli Sunday, 17 December 2017 at 12 noon Mass: blessing of Infant Jesus from Family Crib

This year, Bambinelli Sunday was celebrated for the first time in Our Lady Queen of Peace. It was great to see so many children gather before the altar at the end of the 12 noon Mass with their Bambinelli. Fr Fergus said a short prayer (see here) and then blessed each Bambinello with holy water.
Bambinelli Sunday is a beautiful custom instituted by St John Paul II during his Papacy. On the Third Sunday of Advent (Gaudete or Rejoice Sunday), children and their families travel to St. Peter’s Square and bring with them figures of baby Jesus – the Bambinelli – from their family Crib. After the Angelus the Pope blesses both the children and the figurines.

Novena to the Immaculate Conception 2017

Our inaugural Novena to the Immaculate Conception was preached by Rev. Gavan Jennings (editor of Position Papers) with the aim of helping to prepare for the World Meeting of Families next August.
Each day Fr Gavan dealt with one the 9 chapters of Amoris Laetitia, drawing very practical considerations from the family life of Our Lady and the Holy Family that can apply to all families.
  • These texts of St Josemaría may be helpful on days when you are unable to attend our Novena.
  • See also texts from the Gospel for your personal prayer, along with some ideas from Saint Josemaría and Pope Francis. 
Confessions will be available as usual for 20 minutes before and after each Mass. 



Annual Mass for the Deceased of the Parish, Sunday, 5 November 2017 at 12 noon

The month of November is traditionally the time of year when Church liturgy invites us to pray for all those who have passed from this world. It is a particular duty in charity to remember deceased family and friends at this time.

The 12.00 noon Mass on Sunday, 5 November 2017 was offered for all those we love who have gone before us and especially for members of our parish who have died during the past year. We also included those who have no one to remember them.



Parish Pilgrimage to the Holy Land, 13-21 September 2017

The inaugural pilgrimage of Lady Queen of Peace to the Holy Land was a wonderful experience for everyone. Photo album here.
As one of our pilgrims put it:
We walked where He walked, sailed where He sailed, felt the same desert sun on our backs as He did. I defy anyone to come to this holy place and not be moved to tears, buoyed up and strengthened in their faith in God made man.
We spent 3 nights in Tiberias and 5 nights in Jerusalem and visited the major holy sites in Galilee and in Jerusalem and surroundings. 
We also went to the very impressive Saxum Visitor Centre, which is nearing completion. This Saxum visit helped a lot to give an overview of the history of salvation and to bring the Gospels alive.
The consensus was that through our visit to the Holy Land we were able to seek, find and to love Christ at a deeper level.
For more background on the Holy Sites, see eBook In the Footprints of our Faith, which can be downloaded in various formats here.  


Parish Family Fun Day, Sunday 24 September 2017

Our fourth annual Parish Family Fun Day was a most enjoyable event.

Lots of families with young children came to the 12 noon Mass. Our Sunday celebration continued afterwards with a range of outdoor entertainment. Throughout the afternoon, a continuous supply of tea, lemonade, sandwiches and biscuits was provided by volunteers.

Old favourites like bouncy castles, face-painting and games galore, were complemented by tours of the church given at intervals by a team of enthusiastic young volunteers.
Special thanks to all our volunteers, to all who came, to all who contributed towards covering our Fun Day expenses and to those who brought refreshments, in response to our Family Fun Day Pot Luck page
See 2017 photo album.
