OLQP Mission

Focusing awareness on critical ministries

Our Lady Queen of Palestine (OLQP)

The purpose of this project to raise awareness of what our sisters and brothers in the Holy Land are experiencing, as well as gather many prayers for them. As noted, we don’t specifically ask for money, but we have found that if people are engaged and inspired by the works of the Mission, they’re generosity in making contributions seems to flow…

Mission Overview

In 2012, Deacon Ryan was in his 4th year of diaconate formation, and was given a two-part assignment to both engage his parish in his formation process, and to create a project with a social justice theme that would be at service to others in need. At this time, Dn. Ryan and his wife Dame Wynsdey had also recently been invested into the EOHSJ. So they joined together their loves: Diaconal ministry and EOHSJ, At this moment, the OLQP Mission was born.

What started as a one-time homework assignment completed for the Feast day of Our Lady Queen of Palestine has since evolved into a year round Mission. Throughout the course of the year, Dn. Ryan and Dame Wynsdey travel to parishes all over California and other Western USA States. The weekends consist of Dn. Ryan serving at all the parish Masses and preaching and speaking about the works of the OLQP Mission. Dame Wynsdey, often times assisted by other wonderful Dames of the Order, set up and receive parishioners at a table outside the Church with information tri-folds, as well as 0live wood items from Bethlehem, and handmade Rosaries. We also provide information for our now-famous Golf Tournament founded by Sir Jim and Dame Judy Salz, with proceeds benefiting the OLQP Mission.

OLQP is not primarily dedicated to raising money, but rather the awareness of and prayers for our sisters’ and brothers’ situation in the Holy Land are our most important goal. We do accept monetary donations, as we have found that if people are engaged and inspired by the works of the Mission, their generosity seems to coincide.
