Email. adoration@queenofpeaceparish.orgThe mission of this ministry is to deepen prayer life through the contemplation, recognition and adoration of the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist, outside of Mass, and thus, make reparation for all wrongs and bring His peace to every human heart. All are invited to come spend time in private prayer and adoration. It is our prayer that someone is visiting our Lord in the Chapel at all times so we may offer continuous prayers of praise and adoration to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament takes place from 8:30am until 3:00pm on the first Friday of the month. A Benediction Service begins at 3:00pm that includes the Divine Mercy Chaplet and Miraculous Medal Novena.[/toggle]

Our Mission is to encourage and facilitate the worship of our Lord before, during and after the liturgy, by engaging parishioners to participate in operating computers to project music, psalms, prayers and videos. We are the people who make sure that words to music and psalms appear on our screens at every mass, every weekend. No need to be looking through books, instead our parish can be lifting our heads and voices in praise. “Technologists” (or techies) need to understand basic Powerpoint operation, and work in the loft as scheduled (or be responsible to get a replacement). People are always needed to operate the computer, and update music as needed.[/toggle]
