We are a community where you BELONG.
We are a welcoming environment where people are known and loved, called by name, and supported in their call to holiness. We offer ministries that focus on hospitality, fellowship, and spiritual growth. We ask that every parishioner be involved in at least one community or service organization.

The Knights of Columbus is the world’s largest Catholic fraternal service organization engaged in charity (local and global in scope), Life Insurance, and faith-based institutional investing. Founded by Father Michael J. McGivney in New Haven, Connecticut, in 1882, it was named in honor of the mariner Christopher Columbus. Originally serving as a mutual benefit society to low-income immigrant Catholics, it developed into a fraternal benefit society dedicated to providing charitable services, promoting Catholic education and Catholic public policy positions, and actively defending Roman Catholicism in various nations. Council 11700 has been here at Mary Our Queen since 1995 and is approaching member strength of 400 Knights. Members must be a male practicing Catholic in good standing with the Church and at least 18-year of age. Visit the council website at moqknights.org.

The Mary Our Queen Ladies Guild welcomes all women from our parish to become involved in various spiritual, social and charitable projects. It is a fantastic opportunity to meet other women and offers the flexibility to be involved on many different levels. Several of our members belong to small groups of women with similar interests, called Circles, but there are numerous activities aimed towards those who want to participate in a more flexible fashion. The amount of commitment is completely up to you. Some of the opportunities to get involved with include shopping for Christmas families, preparing baskets for the Marquee fundraiser, working a fish fry, or simply joining our email based programs to provide desserts or volunteers for funeral luncheons. The Ladies Guild is a great way to meet people at Mary Our Queen while helping others in our parish. Contact: Co-Presidents Mallory Pole and Andrea Biga; firstname.lastname@example.org
