Queen of Peace Church, Hamilton – 75 Anniversary
October 2, 2016 @ 11:00 am
Sunday, October 2, 2016, 11 a.m. A mass will be celebrated by Archbishop Dennis M. Schnurr and this will be the beginning of a day of Jubilation for this little country church. The mass will be held with a Family Style Country Dinner to follow. Background Information: The church was founded by a group of 40 families in 1941. A rectory was added in 1942 and a Convent was added in 1943. Even some of the area businesses and churches helped with donations. The Cross that hangs above our altar even today was donated by Rev. John T. McNicholas, Archbishop of Cincinnati. The parishioners endured many hardships and blessing within those 75 years. Anytime help was needed the members of the church stepped up. The small country church grew into a new church in 1966 with a new school added in 1991. Our community stepped up with many donations of time and supplies to build the active parish we have today. Our church was founded on prayer, education and helping others.
