Dear Mary Queen of Peace Parish Family,
As your parish shepherd, I am so thankful for all of you at Mary Queen of Peace Parish who are so faithful to Christ and his Church. My heart is filled with gratitude to those who give so much of themselves to make MQP such a great parish. So many of you make my heart full of gratitude for your leadership and service, for your spiritual vitality and social vibrancy, for your worship and openness to learn! Thanks be to God!
On a similar note, I am extremely grateful to all of you who made our 2014 MQP Auction a huge success. I am thankful to the 402 guests who came to the auction – about 80 more than the last one. We all need to be extremely grateful for Mrs. Ellen Dolan, the Chairperson of the Auction, for the second time in a row – service above and beyond the call of duty. Ellen had a very dedicated core team for leadership and an extensive group of volunteers who made it all come together so well. Also, we want to thank the generous sponsors of the Auction, and all who contributed great items to be auctioned, and all those who generously bid on and bought these great gifts!
May the Lord bless you, and our patron, Mary Queen of Peace, pray for you!
Father Bob Reiker, Pastor
