    • WELCOME TO MARY QUEEN CATHOLIC CHURCH

      The priests that serve Mary Queen are Missionaries of Our Lady of La Salette.  Founded on the message and inspiration of Mary's apparition at La Salette, our ministry is to help people respond to the grace of reconciliation through faith in Jesus Christ, especially those people who are alienated or estranged.  Wherever we minister, we make this message known to all God's people.  Click here to learn more about the Missionaries of Our Lady of La Salette.

      Our Blessed Mother, Our Lady of La Salette, appeared to two children on the top of a mountain in the Alps of southeastern France, near the hamlet of La Salette on September 19, 1846.  The first of the series of apparitions which include those of Lourdes and Fatima, her message was an invitation to live the message of her Son, Jesus.  Her parting words to the children were: "Well, my children, make this known to all my people."  Mary's apparition at La Salette is a modern day reminder of an ancient truth; that Mary constantly intercedes for us before God; that she is the Reconciler of Sinners, calling us back to the message and way of her Son, Jesus.
