Our Lady Queen of Heaven Church

Spanaway Food Bank

Volunteers and contributions for our parish and other local churches provide assistance to people who have need of food in our area. The second weekend of every month, parishioners are invited to bring to Mass some

non-perishable food items, basic household supplies and

toiletries for the Food Bank.


Free Blood Pressure Screening 

Parish Nurses serve the parish by providing Free Blood Pressure Screening after all Masses on the second weekend of each month.


Pierce County Deanery

Our contributions to the Deanery help the Church be present in our Catholic Schools and in ministry to the Hispanic community of Pierce County. The deanery also serves those who minister in jails, those in hospitals, and in a variety of other ministries.


Archdiocesan, National and Universal Church

Each year we are invited to support the ministry of the Archbishop and the Archdiocesan Church through the Annual Catholic Appeal. In addition, special collections, e.g., the Mission Collection and Peter's Pence collection are taken up to support the ministry of the Church in the United Sates and in the world.

Lenten Goat Project

Parishioners support the efforts of our youngest members in raising funds to sponsor the donation of goats to needy families through Heifer International.

Since Lent of 2003, the Faith Formation children, with the donation of funds, have provided 17 goats including the goat provided this year


Back-to-School

Each summer parishioners donate new school supplies for students in our area. In mid-August, we coordinate with local social service agencies and our St. Vincent de Paul office so we can distribute packets of supplies to students with the greatest need. This year our goal is to provide 200 packets of supplies to community children.


Christmas Baskets

During Advent, our parish collects gifts and donations for food to give to families who would otherwise have very little for Christmas.
