Dear Mary Queen of Peace Parish Family,
My name is Fr. John Vien and I look forward to meeting you, getting to know you, and growing in faith with you in the months and years to come. I’m very happy to be here at Mary, Queen of Peace!
I am a St. Louisan through and through; my great-great-great-great-great-great-grandfather was one of the thirty pioneers who founded the City of St. Louis with Pierre Laclede Liguest and Auguste Chouteau, so St. Louis is in my blood. I’ve traveled all over the world, but St. Louis is my very favorite place! I grew up in St. Monica Parish in Creve Coeur, where I was baptized and went to school and celebrated my First Mass.
May the Lord bless you, and our patron, Mary Queen of Peace, pray for you!
