Thank you to all who have returned their Parish Stewardship commitment card.

Everyone else is also asked to prayerfully evaluate their giving to the parish and community. After praying, please fill out a commitment card and return it as soon as possible. Your commitment will allow us to establish the budget for next year to support many ministries, formation programs, sacraments, liturgies, projects which are to sustain our parish.

You have the option of returning the Stewardship of Treasure Commitment Card by mail, collection basket, or by pledging online  HERE.

If for some reason you did not receive a commitment card, they can be found at the entrance of the church.

 Your gifts matter – and they are making a difference! Thank You

For all parish members eager to return their pledge and share their gifts with their parish; grant that their faith is deepened and their lives become further enriched by their generosity, let us pray to the Lord.

We hope all of you, parishioners and parents as well as children will support and bring the non -perishable food to the church.

First communion students need to see the ushers at the church doors to fill up the Mass chart with stickers.



The Mary Queen of Peace

Intercessory Prayer Team

The parishes of St. Ann, St. John of the Woods and Visitation are forming a prayer team devoted to praying for the work of Christ's Mission in our parishes and the special personal intentions of our parishioners.

As a team, we will spend time offering prayers for these specific intentions. We need parishioners from each of our 3 parishes to form this prayer team. Per the Archbishop, "prayer team members must have a gift of prayer, demonstrated by their love for and regular reception of the sacraments." (Most Rev. Paul D. Etienne, letter dated Aug. 20, 2021).

Responsibilities would include a committed time to prayer and monthly meetings with the prayer team.

If you are interested in joining, please contact Bob Gummersall at frgummer@prortonmail.com.

Pastoral Plan Activities and Prayer

November 7

Please read the Gospel for this Sunday Mark 12:38-44.

In the Gospel, Jesus points to the donation of the widow. It was what she had to buy food and the things she needed

Dialogue: Why do you think that Jesus says her gift more than what all they others contributed? How do you think she was able to buy food for herself in the coming days? What is the message for us?

Activity: Decide on a food item to bring to the church for the poor. Perhaps include a card saying that you will be praying for the family who receives this item. In November we pray for those who have died. Can you remember the kindness and generosity of someone who has died? Tell the family about that person and say a prayer for him/her

    National Vocation Awareness Week, celebrated November 7-13, 2021 is an annual week-long celebration of the Catholic Church in the United States dedicated to the promotion of vocations to the priesthood, diaconate and consecrated life through prayer and education, and to renew our prayers and support for those who are considering one of these particular vocations.


    God our Father, You call each of us
    to use our gifts in the Body of Christ.

    Inspire your people
    with desire to know you,
    the grace to understand your will,
    and, with the strength of the Holy Spirit,
    the courage to respond
    with love and freedom.

    Send workers into Your great harvest
    so that the Gospel is preached, the poor
    are served with love, the suffering are comforted,
    and Your people are strengthened by the sacraments.
    We ask this through Christ our Lord.
