Parish Life

Mary Our Queen Achieving Religious Quality and Unsurpassed Elementary Education – is our parish’s largest annual fundraiser.  It is a dinner, dance, and auction (silent and live).  It is also a wonderful chance to celebrate our MOQ community with old and new friends.  The proceeds of the event are used to assist in meeting the operating needs of the Parish, to support Parish and educational programs, fund technology needs, and help pay for maintenance and building improvements.  Many volunteers are needed for this annual event.

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.

Ladies Guild

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.
