Welcome to Our Lady Queen of Peace!
Bishop Henry Murphy created the parish of Our Lady Queen
of Peace on September 21 1961. Before 1961, this area had been part
of the parish of Donaghmore/Knockea. Until the creation of Our Lady
Queen of Peace parish, the church in this area had been used as a chapel
of ease in the parish of Donaghmore/Knockea. The church was built to
accommodate the expanding suburb of Janesboro. The area was further
divided when the south of the parish was separated to create the Holy
Family parish on December 9 1969.
The present day population of the parish is around 5,000.
