An annual celebration of faith, service, and community!
Thank you to those that attended this year's Parish Festival. It was great to see our QP Community come together.

We will be tying larger fleece blankets for kids who are without a home and might be sleeping in shelters – or even in their cars.
These are Ziploc bags filled with things that we take for granted but can make all the difference in the world if you are homeless.
Badger Honor Flight Letters
We will be writing letters to those going on Badger Honor Flights, thanking them for their service.
We chose each project with the Catholic Church’s Works of Mercy in mind. In addition to everything we are doing, we will be praying for each person who might benefit from the projects. That means when you finish a blanket, we’ll have a prayer for you to say for the child who will use it. When you finish a blessing bag, we’ll have a prayer for you to say for the person who will receive it.
See the volunteer section. Volunteer check-in on the day of the event will again be centrally located near ticket sales and first aid. The help of our whole parish community is needed. With your help, we can all have a ton of fun!
Thank you for taking a look at the volunteer opportunities for Our Lady Queen of Peace Parish Festival. It takes a village to run this event well! There are many opportunities available to suit your interest. Shifts are only two hours.
Please consider a spot that is always harder to fill such as children’s activities and food sales. Thank you in advance for helping out at the Parish Festival! We truly couldn’t do it without you.
