"Each year we divide our Annual Appeal rebate between our sister parish, St. Gregory the Great, and our youth ministry. Our relationship with St. Gregory has deepened with our shared reflection on Bishop Braxton's pastoral on the racial divide as well as our ongoing support for the food pantry, the summer luncheon program, and the backpack school supplies drive. Last year our youth ministry rebate helped towards our youth mission visit with our sister parish in Rerua, India."
-Fr. Joseph Lacey, S.J., St. Alphonsus Rodriguez
"On Christmas Eve, 2015, as I began to give my homily at our 6:00 p.m. Mass, a portion of the ceiling plaster fell onto some of our parishioners. Fortunately, nobody was seriously hurt. This ceiling failure caused us to move out of our church and into the parish hall which was formerly the school cafeteria. Repairs quickly escalated into an entire ceiling and roof demolition and replacement project. This has also necessitated the removal and future reinstallation of the pipe organ. The cost of this has escalated beyond what our parish could handle. Through the kindness of the Archbishop, the Annual Appeal has greatly helped us raise the funds to make the needed repairs.
- Fr. Kevin A. Mueller, Our Lady Queen of Peace
