SCAM Alert

ATTENTION PLEASE: Please disregard any emails from Fr. Walling that are not coming from rwalling@qphamilton.org. There are messages circulating about needing special prayers, money, etc. These are scams! Fr. Walling will NEVER email you asking you for money or gift cards.  The latest scam has somehow managed to pop into existing email conversation threads. The parish office does not need to be notified if you have received them. However, if you have fallen victim to these scams please file a report at Report a Scam | Ohio.gov | Official Website of the State of Ohio and with your local police department.  Unfortunately ministers, school principals, etc. are common targets for these scams because these are organizations that people like to make donations to.


Our Family of Parish Priests enjoy a home-cooked meal together each week at Queen of Peace. Meals are delivered to the parish office or outside the residence every Tuesday and Wednesday. Typically, meals should feed 4-5 adults. They enjoy all meats, starches, salads, breads and desserts. If you would be interested in being put on the rotation or have further questions, please call the Queen of Peace Parish Office 513-863-4344


Lenten Project

3/24-The sisters identified the following priorities at their clinic: a suction machine costing $2428, sterilization drums costing $2375, 500 mosquito nets at $4 each, 150 Mama kits at $30 each, and funds for more medical supplies. You can identify where you want your donation focused on the envelope if you choose. Let’s help the Little Sisters of Mary Immaculate in Gulu save more lives! Envelopes for your donations are in the Gathering Space. Please make checks payable to St. Aloysius.

3/17-In Uganda the mortality rate for children under age 5 is 62/1000. At the clinic, over 4,000 children were dewormed last year, up 65% from 2019 when St. Al’s began our relationship with the Little Sisters of Mary Immaculate in Uganda.  Immunizations increased 230% during the same period. Your Lenten donation can help the sisters purchase more medical supplies and facilitate a greater impact. Will you help? Envelopes for your donations are in the Gathering Space. Please make checks payable to St. Aloysius.

3/10-Primary causes of death in Uganda are malaria, TB, and malnutrition with contaminated water and poor sanitation as major contributors. In rural areas there is only one doctor for every 20,000 people and one nurse per 80,000 people. The sisters at Mary Queen of Peace Clinic provide a vital resource for these impoverished people with an annual GDP of $604 per person. Over half the population is under age 15. Envelopes for your donations are in the Gathering Space.

3/3-Mission Outreach is again asking parishioners this Lent to support the needs of The Little Sisters of Mary Immaculate in Gulu, Uganda. We have had a “twinning” relationship with them since 2019. St. Aloysius has helped make a difference by
supplying water purification resources, Mama Kits, mosquito nets, medicine, and equipment. They serve some of the world’s neediest and poorest in a war-torn region. Envelopes for your donations are in the Gathering Space.

2/25-Deliveries at the Mary Queen of Peace Health Center increased from 386 to about 800 last year. The availability of free Mama Kits and mosquito nets help attract expectant mothers to the clinic so they receive appropriate antenatal care. Mama kits cost $30 and mosquito nets are $4 each. Consider how many you could help purchase as a Lenten donation. Since St. Al’s engagement with the sisters, maternal and infant mortality has decreased by 89% at the clinic. Envelopes for your donations are in the Gathering Space.

Committee members are:  Jim Bischoff, Sr.(513-896-6397), Ann Adams (513-646-1052), or Imelda Castaneda-Emenaker (513-403-9621).

Community Outreach

Many families with aging adults are unaware of the several available memory care options and programs in their area that can help them support a high quality of life. So we created free resources that highlights the best memory care facilities in Ohio.

Spiritual Communion 

For those who are unable to receive Holy Communion, you can make this prayer of Spiritual Communion a source of grace in the midst of difficulty:

My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
