Are you expecting new life, having financial difficulties, or grieving a miscarriage or infant loss?

Walking With Moms in Need is an initiative of Catholics across the United States, joined by individuals in the Diocese of Madison in southwestern Wisconsin, to provide resources and support. For more information, please click on the linksto the right, or contact Crystal Nemeth in the Pastoral Care office at (608) 231-4614. We want to walk with you!


Expecting Parents

Are you pregnant? Getting closer to your delivery date? 

If you are starting to prepare for the arrival of your new little family member, we'd like to remind you to list Our Lady Queen of Peace as your parish when you register at the hospital.  When you complete your pre-admission steps simply say "I'm a Catholic and I belong to QP."  This allows us to know when your baby arrives and to be able to follow-up with pastoral care check-ins and meal delivery!  

Our pastoral care staff is also available to help and support you throughout your pregnancy, especially during critical tests, crisis pregnancy requiring bed-rest, or if multiples come along! 


Miscarriage: Moving from Grief Toward Healing

If you have experienced the grief of pregnancy loss, we know this can be a painful time because the life you carried often goes unrecognized, unacknowledged, and life around you just moves on as if nothing happened. 

We offer a small miscarriage support group, using the book In Loving Remembrance, a Catholic guide to miscarriage and pregnancy loss.
You may find yourself with many questions during this difficult time too: Why is this happening? Where can I go for support and answers? Can I have a funeral or memorial service? Should I name the baby? How do I talk to friends and family about the baby? We can help answer those questions. Our Catholic Church cares for every life no matter how brief.

If you’re seeking support or more information, please contact the Pastoral Care Office at (608) 231-4614. You can also complete the form below and a ministry member will contact you soon.


You will find a few resources below. Be use sure to reach out to our Pastoral Care Team at (608) 231-4614 for additional resources.

Our parish also offers the Rosebud Program. The Rosebud Program helps our church to pray for those waiting for a child to be born, those celebrating birth or adoption, wanting to become pregnant or adopt, grieving miscarriage, stillbirth, abortion, infant or child death. See our Rosebud table in the Gathering Space to participate. We pray for the intentions of the Rosebud Program each month in our universal prayer.
