The Archdiocese of New Orleans requires every parish to have a committee of parishioners who advise the Pastor.

New members are selected each spring. For more information, please contact Wayne Kempff at email@example.com.
The primary responsibility of the Stewardship Ministry is to oversee the Stewardship Renewal each year.
This program identifies areas of possible contribution to Mary, Queen of Peace and provides parishioners with the opportunity to choose how they wish to participate. The members of this ministry look for opportunities to educate parishioners about stewardship through the example of “stewardship in action” during the Ministry Fair. Ministry members will participate and provide information and material to parishioners, explaining what they do and how they do it. This ministry also attempts to bring the ministry leaders together with the Pastoral Council and the parish staff to discuss plans for the immediate future. For more information, contact ministry leader Joe Luquet at 626-5958 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
