SALEM — Queen of Peace Parish celebrates its 50th founding anniversary Friday through Sunday, Sept. 6-8, culminating with a Sunday Mass celebrated by Archbishop Alexander Sample at 11 a.m.
The parish was established in 1963, and the school was dedicated soon after. In those days, the church sat adjacent to a cherry orchard on the edge of town. Today Queen of Peace is surrounded by bustling city life in Southeast Salem.
Pastor is Father Tim Mockaitis.
The Sisters of Perpetual Adoration staffed the school until 1993. When the school  opened it had just 90 students in just two classrooms.
On Friday, the school will host community activities. Times have not yet been announced.
After the Saturday evening Vigil Mass at 5 p.m., former clergy and Religious who have served at the parish over the years will be honored at a reception. Current and former priests will concelebrate the Mass.
Finally, after Sunday’s Mass, revelers will gather for a celebration barbecue with children’s activities. Visitors can peruse a professionally designed timeline of parish history. Former parishioners and students are welcomed at all of the celebratory events. The parish is at 4227 Lone Oak Road SE.
