We’re delighted to be offering Fish & Philosophy again this year!
In keeping with the Adult Enrichment Commission’s focus on the Eucharist during this year of Eucharistic Revival, both of our Fish and Philosophy Sessions will focus on the source and summit of our faith.
Friday, March 1: Join us as Bob McLeod shares his own experience of the Eucharist as well as the Saints’ perspectives on the Eucharist. Bob is a lawyer by trade and a theologian at heart and has a unique perspective to share on the truth of this most central sacred mystery.
Friday, March 22: Join us for an Encounter with Jesus. With a few weeks to ponder Dr. McLeod’s words, we come together to spend time faith sharing, to spend time in prayer, and hearing the stories of others who have had a personal Encounter with the living God through the Eucharist!
Fish and Philosophy always involves a Fish Dinner at 6:00pm followed by a presentation. The cost for the dinner is $17. And features baked or breaded/baked cod from the Catholic Multicultural Center. Watch for information on how to sign up!
Lent is here! Join us for our many Lenten prayer opportunities! Visit https://www.qopc.org/worship/lent.cfm to learn more.

Easter Vigil Mass of the Resurrection at 7:30pm
This is the highest point of the liturgical year. Everyone should experience and pray at the Easter Vigil! We begin with the Easter fire and blessing the Paschal Candle. When we process into the sanctuary, we proclaim the ancient Exsultet and hear from various books of the Old Testament. When the lights of Church are lit, we see the glory of the Risen Christ. We will welcome candidates and catechumens through baptism, Eucharist, and confirmation this year at this Mass.
