The work camp group will meet a number of times between now and the trip to team build/bond, review expectations, and participate in the build day.
Youth Ministry seeks to welcome young people, grades 7th – 12th, to participate in a safe and loving environment where they can come as they are to experience faith sharing, fellowship, and fun. At Our Lady Queen of Peace, youth are empowered to: live as disciples of Jesus Christ in today's world, to grow spiritually and personally, and experience God's love for all of creation.

Teen Night Program
"Teen Nights" happen on Sundays before the 6:00 pm mass from 4:15 pm to 5:45 pm. Volunteers are needed to help with hospitality & greeting, assist with interaction, facilitation and reflection, helping teen leaders facilitate the evening of activities, small groups, and reflections. Throughout the year we will gather for meals, lock-ins, retreats, and special events. Join us to cultivate faith, fellowship, and fun in our teens.
Social Gatherings, Youth Retreats, Mission Trips and Theatre Ministry
Volunteers needed for retreats, greeters, drivers, chaperones, and mentors to assist in developing discipleship and assistance with our theatre ministry. Performances have included Godspell, You're a Good Man Charlie Brown, 16 in Ten Minutes or Less, Zombie Prom, and Seussical. Your support is greatly appreciated!
Young Adult Ministry
Young adult ministry at Our Lady Queen of Peace reaches out to people between the ages of 18-40 who are parish members or live nearby. OLQP young adult ministry seeks to provide opportunities to grow in faith, community, and service. The Sunday 6:00 pm Mass while oriented toward young people, is open to all. Liturgical ministers, choir members, and hospitality volunteers are needed. Young Adult Potluck: On the 4th Sunday of the month young adults host a potluck dinner and fellowship at 7:15 following Mass. Join us for Young Adult Bible Study and faith sharing, too!
Young Adult Retreats and Social Gatherings
Join fellow young adults on both one-day and weekend retreats throughout the year. Our community also gathers to support one another during birthdays, sporting events, and impromptu gatherings after the 6 pm Mass on Sundays.
