Welcome to Our Lady Queen of Peace

Our Lady Queen of Peace Parish has a rich history.  Our roots are in older parishes that served the Irish and German people of this area for many years.  In 1961 St. Columbkille and St. Philomena merged to form our present parish.  We remember our roots by celebrating Mass each year on Memorial Day in the cemetery of St. Philomena and on Labor Day in the cemetery of St. Columbkille. 

Due to the generosity of our parishioner, a pavilion has been erected on the sites of both of the parish churches.  The work on the Byrnesville site was completed several years ago and a dedication Mass was offered by Bishop Rice.  The effort to remember and honor our roots has now been completed with the construction of a similar pavilion at the House Springs site.  On Sunday, October 16, Bishop Herman celebrated Mass and dedicated this new pavilion with approximately 50 parishioners in attendance. 

Looking back on the rich history that informs Our Lady Queen of Peace, we are again asked to move forward as a parish family, to live not in the past, but to learn from it and move on towards becoming an ever more vibrant and faith filled parish family.

Fr. Dennis Schmidt
