Thanksgiving Food Basket Distribution
OLQP once again provided hundreds of Thanksgiving meals to those in need. We handed out over 400 bags of grocries and 320 turkeys, not to mention all those beautiful homemade pies that folks made on Saturday! A huge thank you to all of you who donated the can goods, stuffing, turkeys, pies and all the fixings as well as the Giant Gift Cards which we included with each bag. Three hundred and twenty families were served through your generosity! we are so grateful for all of the volunteers who bagged the groceries and those who helped with the distribution. Thank you!
MASS OF REMEMBRANCE Tuesday, November 28, 7 pm
Please join us in remembering and honoring children who were lost through miscarriage, SIDS or early death. It is especially fitting that we honor these lives during the month of November when we recall all those who have gone before us in faith. This Mass is especially intended to console parents, families and friends of those who have lost a young loved one.
OLQP is registered as a nonprofit with Amazon Smile fundraising program. Every time you buy something from Amazon if you log on to www.smile.amazon.com and have chosen OLQP as your preferred charity we get 0.5% of the purchase you make. Once you log on to the smile.amazon.com website and type in Our Lady Queen of Peace Church a list of Our Lady Queen of Peace Churches will come up and you just scroll down to find the one in Arlington VA. Once you choose us as your preferred charity we will remain as your preferred charity until you change it. Then in the future each time you shop on Amazon be sure to enter their site through the smile.amazon.com portal otherwise we will not receive the 0.5% of your purchase. This very simple to set up and if everyone in the parish who shops on Amazon wass to use this portal it could be a huge help to our parish at no cost to the parishioner.
