A Welcoming Place for You to Grow in God’s Love

A Sunday People

Without Sunday, We Cannot Live

Our Lady Queen of Peace Church in Gilbert, PA
We encourage our Parish to have dedication to the Sunday (or Saturday night) Mass. The phrase “Without Sunday, We Cannot Live” comes from a group of fourth-century martyrs who ignored the Emperor’s edict and gathered on Sunday to celebrate the Eucharist. They were arrested, and the Emperor demanded an explanation. Their response: we cannot live without joining together on Sunday to celebrate the Eucharist. We would lack the strength to face our daily problems and to not succumb.

Join Us for Sunday Mass This Weekend

We offer four different Sunday Mass times, including:
Saturday: 5:00 PM

Our Lady Queen of Peace Church Cherub Choir in Gilbert, PA
Cherub Choir

Our youngest group of singers: Cherub Choir includes preschoolers from our Blessed Beginnings program and students in our CCD program from kindergarten through second grade. Ms. Lindsey visits their classes with the guitar and teaches them new songs, which they sing for our congregation after communion about once a month at the 8 AM Mass. They bring us joy as they remind us how to accept the kingdom of God “like a little child.”

Our Lady Queen of Peace Church Senior Choir in Gilbert, PA

Senior Choir
This group is open to teens and adults from 9th grade through senior citizen. We practice on Thursdays from 7:30-9:00 pm, and sing at the 11:00 am Mass alternating Sundays with the Contemporary Ensemble. We spend time in rehearsals preparing for Masses and learning choral parts to the uplifting and prayerful music that we share. We are currently blessed with a nice balance of Sopranos, Altos, Tenors, and Basses. You do no need to read music to join this choir, just have an open heart and mind and be able to match a pitch. We begin and end each rehearsal with prayer, thanking God for our gifts and the opportunity to share them for His Glory!

Contemporary Ensemble
This group is open to teens and adults from 9th grade through senior citizen. We practice on Mondays from 7:45-9:00 pm, and sing at the 11:00 am Mass alternating Sundays with the Senior Choir. We have a small group of talented instrumentalists, including percussion, piano, guitar, bass, and violin, as well as an enthusiastic group of singers. The music we share is contemporary in style, but serves the Mass in the most appropriate way. You do not need to read music to join the group, just have an open heart and mind and be able to match a pitch. We begin and end each rehearsal with prayer, thanking God for our gifts and the opportunity to share them for His Glory!
