Social Committee

The Social Committee is the coordinating body for many special events at Mary, Queen of Peace. The committee’s goal is to provide fun and fellowship for parish members. The committee meets on an “as needed” basis to plan various activities including the  Easter Egg Hunt, Summer Time Ice Cream Social and the Parish Christmas Party.

Old-Fashioned Ice Cream Social

At this annual summer gathering, parish members enjoy an afternoon of fun and fellowship. The Social offers a great afternoon to slow down and get acquainted (or re-acquainted ) with other parish members. There are games for children and adults. We ask that you bring your favorite dish to share, hot dogs and hamburgers are cooked and served by the Knights of Columbus, and of course, ice cream and drinks are provided by the parish.

Share Your Heart Dinner and Auction

This annual event is a major fund-raiser for the parish. It includes dinner, a live and silent auction, and entertainment. Volunteers are needed in all areas (e.g., planning the dinner, setting up and decorating, organizing the auction) to help plan this fun evening for the parish.

Women’s Club

Our mission is to serve God, our parish and pastor. We invite all women of the parish to join in our regular business-social meetings on the second Tuesday of each month with social time at 6:30 and the meeting beginning at 7:00 p.m.

We are an affiliate of the National Council of Catholic Women (NCCW) which represents hundreds of thousands of Catholic women. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) recognizes NCCW as a valued partner of the Church.

During the year we work together to plan a few big fundraisers to help the parish and local community. We supply sacramental items such as Baptismal candles and bibs, and Bibles for our religious education program. We help support funeral dinners and other special needs of the parish.

Knights of Columbus

This organization for Catholic men welcomes new members. The group meets on the first Wednesday of the month at 7:00 pm, organizes and staffs the monthly Sunday breakfast, and plans other service projects for the parish and community, such as the Annual Tootsie Roll Drive to support Special Olympics. In months having a fifth Sunday, the Knights serve as usher-greeters, lecturers, and Eucharistic ministers at the Masses.

Monthly Breakfast

On the second Sunday of the month from September to May, the Knights of Columbus, the Catholic men’s group of the parish, offers an “All-You-Can-Eat” buffet style breakfast in the parish hall. The meal includes such breakfast favorites as scrambled eggs, hash browns and biscuits. Everyone is encouraged to come and enjoy breakfast. In addition, newcomers are treated with a free coupon for this delicious meal!

Donuts and Coffee

Every Sunday from September to May (when Religious Education classes are held), donuts and coffee are provided in the Parish Hall from 9:15 to 10:15 a.m. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet some other parish members, enjoy some refreshments and relax while your children are in religious education. (You can even bring the Sunday paper if you want!) We need volunteers to help organize this weekly informal social for parishioners.
