How do I become Catholic?  Are you interested in joining a universal Church that stretches around the globe, that has a vibrant sacramental system in which Jesus is present especially in His real Body and Blood in the Eucharist, that embraces people from every race, language and way of life, that is the largest provider of social and human services in the world? Then you are interested in becoming a Roman Catholic!  






My Parish App:

Our Lady Queen of Peace/Saint Margaret of Cortona has launched our own parish app for iPhone and Android smart phones. 


To download this app, text the word app to phone number 88202 to download.  *  Type OLQP in the search box

With this app, we have the ability to send messages about special events, Holy Day reminders, Penance Service times, etc…

The app has the most up-to-date Mass and confession schedule for each week and allows you to set reminders for the next Mass you want to attend as well as when you want to next go to confession. There is an examination of conscience which will help you think about what you need to confess. In addition the confession section provides a quick ‘how to’ review and several examples of the Act of Contrition.

You will find many different prayers and have the ability to set a reminder for prayers you want to say every day, every week or just once at a certain time. The app also connects you to the daily readings.

We see this app as a gateway to a lot of great information about the Church and about what is happening right here at Our Lady Queen of Peace/Saint Margaret of Cortona parish.  The reminders and tools can be very helpful in helping you live your faith every day.  MyParish will not replace our current forms of communication, but rather enhance what we are already doing.

"Nothing is more practical than finding God, than falling in Love in a quite absolute final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination will affect everything.  It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you do with your evenings, how you spend your weekends, what you read, whom you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude.  Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything."

~Father Pedro Arrupe, SJ
