Greetings from our Pastor
I send warm greetings to you. I am Father Walter Szczesny, the Pastor of Our Lady of Peace Parish. I invite you to discover and explore our Parish website. I hope you will find it informative and interesting.
I also invite you to discover the vibrant Liturgical and Ministerial life of our parish. Perhaps you can see yourself becoming involved in our mission to imitate Christ as we are attentive to the needs of others. My door is always open should you have questions or wish to dialogue on your faith journey.
May God continue to bless you and your family,
- Fr. Walter Szczesny
