Join Bishop Bradley for a day of prayer, fasting, and works of charity in unity with the Holy Father and People of all Faiths around the world for an end to the Coronavirus pandemic 

Thursday, May 14, 2020

Diocese Live Stream Schedule:

8 a.m. Mass with Bishop Bradley

12 p.m. Divine Mercy Chaplet

6 p.m. Rosary

All are encouraged to prayerfully discern fasting or abstaining from something for the day as well as sacrificial giving (e.g. Diocese of Kalamazoo Catholic Charities Emergency Food Distribution Program).  Please go to https://www.dioceseofkalamazoo.org for details.

Bishop Bradley and the Diocese of Kalamazoo will launch a “Let Jesus’ Light Shine” campaign inviting all Christians to turn on their lights on for Easter Day and throughout the Easter octave (and Easter season if possible) to bear witness to the Risen Lord and the Light of the World. People are asked to decorate their windows/outside areas as they choose with bright lights – much like Christmas.

“Let Jesus’ Light Shine” graphic is available in downloadable formats to place on windows to display the message for your neighborhood. Resources are available on the diocesan website.

Lights are to be kept up through the Easter octave and, if possible, the entire 50-day Easter Season. We hope through our united effort to be a visible witness so all the world will know how joyful and filled with hope we are because Jesus is Risen. Let the Light of Jesus shine to all the world through us.

- The Holy Father’s prayer asking Mary to protect the world during the coronavirus pandemic.O Mary, you always shine on our path as a sign of salvation and of hope. We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick, who at the cross took part in Jesus' pain, keeping your faith firm. You know what we need, and we are sure you will provide so that, as in Cana of Galilee, we may return to joy and to feasting after this time of trial. Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform to the will of the Father and to do as we are told by Jesus, who has taken upon himself our sufferings and carried our sorrows to lead us, through the cross, to the joy of the resurrection. Under your protection, we seek refuge, Holy Mother of God. Do not disdain the entreaties of we who are in trial, but deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.  Amen.”

Why Register?  Often people attend Mass at a parish for months, or sometimes even years, but never officially register.  Registering at Our Lady Queen of Peace Church is the expression of your commitment to being part of our parish community.  Being a registered parishioner also makes the process much simpler when it is time for receiving sacraments, registering for religious education, sponsoring a sacrament recipient, and even planning funerals.  Also all  registered parishioners automatically receive all parish mailings.  Please pick up a registration form in the back of the Church or call the office, 269-465-6252.

Please note, copies of The Kids Bulletin, a fun way for children to learn about their faith every week, are available on the table in back of the Church.
