October is Respect Life Month! An old Irish proverb says, “It is in the shelter of each other that the people live.” Indeed, we are created to depend upon one another and walk together in suffering. But when family members or friends approach life’s end, we may not know how best to “shelter” them. Click here to read more.

MQP will once again be collecting gloves, hats and scarves for the homeless. Those of you who are talented and can knit or crochet, and those of us who can only cut fleece, can put our items in the Narthex during the month of October. Thank you for sharing your talents with those who need our help at this time of the year. 

World Mission Sunday World Mission Sunday is next weekend, October 15-16.

Come to MQP for this unprecedented opportunity to venerate the relics of St. Sharbel, the Lebanese saint widely known as a miraculous intercessor, through whom God desires to reveal His healing touch, October 28 & 29. A Generational Healing Mass will be celebrated on the evening of Friday, October 28 at 7:00 p.m. Click here for the program.

As part of the visit of the relics of St. Sharbel, all are welcome to the Generational Healing Mass at MQP on Friday, October 28 at 7:00 p.m. While every Mass confers spiritual healing through the power of the Holy Eucharist, it’s also a practice of our faith to celebrate special healing Masses that focus on the restoration of health through the power of the Holy Spirit. In a healing Mass, the theme of renewal is reflected in the prayers and Scriptures. One way to prepare for this Mass is to diagram your family tree with things in your family that you want to offer to Jesus for healing. You can find more information about how to diagram your family tree at this link.
