                                                                                                            Our Mission

            The Sodality of Our Lady Queen of Peace is a loving, joy filled Catholic ladies faith-based organization, centered on Christ and committed to working together toward the growth and vitality of Our Lady Queen of Peace Parish.  We, the ladies of the Sodality, assist the church in serving the community, its parishioners and our beloved Pastor.  The Sodality leads others to Christ through devotion to the Blessed Mother. 

We are a Catholic Organization

Our Sodality predominantly serves Our Lady Queen of Peace Parish, the parishioners and the local community. Our members volunteer and serve OLQP on the Parish Pastoral Council, Hospitality, Pro-Life and Seniors Groups, and Altar Guild and parish Finance Committee.   Some dedicate themselves as Religious Education Teachers.   Other ladies serve as Lectors or Extraordinary Ministers of the Holy Eucharist, while others volunteer our time serving in the Parish Office.  We welcome ladies from other parishes to join us!!

We conduct fund raisers that provide financial assistance to the parish, by conducting bake sales, basket raffles, and social events.  We have an annual Ladies Retreat and a Pray Shawl Ministry where we donate hand-crafted prayer shawls to the sick and homebound.  When a Sodality sister is called home to God, we support the family and we pray the Rosary for our departed Sodality sister and her family. We gather in May to attend Mass at our May Procession and New Member Installation.

  Our Meetings

            Our meetings are held at Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Church in Middle River Maryland, and are open to all Sodality members. The regularly scheduled Monthly Meeting is held the second or third Sunday of every month at 12:30 p.m. where we gather to pray and to conduct normal business.  Our meetings are held September - May.  (We do not meet during the summer months June – August.) We open our meetings by praying a decade of The Rosary and Act of Consecration to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal.  After every meeting we have light refreshments, and then socialize with our Sodality Sisters.
