Church FAQs

Finding a new place of worship can be a challenge, and we want to make it as easy as possible. You’re sure to have questions, so we’ve compiled some of the questions we’re most frequently asked by those new to our area. We welcome you to our worship community!

What are your Mass times?

We know that each family is different and has unique needs. For this reason, we celebrate Mass multiple times a day, seven days a week. Visit our Home page for Mass times.

Do you have a cry room, or are children welcome within in the church?

Both! Children are the future of the church! Children of all ages are most welcome at all Masses at Our Lady Queen of Peace Parish. 

New parishioners and new parents, did you know there is a special family room for families with children who are naturally vocal or active during Mass? It is located at the highest point in the back of church for good visibility and sound. If you prefer to sit with your young children in the main seating area, you are more than welcome to do so. As a courtesy to others around you who may be hard of hearing, please consider moving to the family room if your child becomes vocal during the Mass.

What if a loved one or I have difficulty being in the church space but want to attend Mass somehow?

At Our Lady Queen of Peace, Masses are projected to the screens in the Gathering Space, where there is easy access to restrooms, plenty of space, and access to take Communion. Learn more about our Mass projection option.
