When my husband and I moved to Ocala, we were fallen-away Catholics. Thanks be to God and His grace we found Father Pat and Queen of Peace Church. Father Pat not only welcomed us back, but through his teachings and guidance we came to know and have a new appreciation for our religion, more than we had in our 60 previous years. Sadly, we had, for many reasons, to move back to New England, We sorey miss our church, Father Pat and all our wonderful church friends. We will never forget all that transpired at Queen of Peace, and Father Pat. We look forward to a visit in the future.

We recently passed through the Ocala area and noticed the Queen of Peace Catholic Church. While the buildings and grounds were quite beautiful we became confused when reading the banner on the roadside sign. I suggest that there is some ambiguity regarding the meaning of the banner that read, "HATE WHAT GOD HATES". Is there is a parishioner that perhaps is willing to explain the intent of these words? May I suggest that the words, 'LOVE WHAT GOD LOVES" may be more appropriate?

I have been going to Queen of Peace for over 20 years now and Father O is also my Godfather. I have known him as both a friend, a confessor and spiritual advisor. His level of commitment to our Lord, Jesus the Christ and more to the people of Queen of Peace has always been 100%. To the naysayers claiming he uses money for any other reasons then moral and holy are just wrong. Some people are just angry when they hear the truth about politics and abortions. If you call yourself a Catholic then there are some simple facts that have never changed. Abortion is Murder and voting for any politician that supports abortion is a sin. If you have a problem with that then you may want to consider moving to a Protestant church where they will water down the truth.

Father O is a selfish and angry person but God shed his grace on him and he serves God with all he has in him. As far as I can tell, unlike many Priests that take vacations, when he leaves for his time off, he goes on a retreat to be an even better Pastor for the people he serves at Queen of Peace. He loves EVERY member of that Church and he is it's servant by Gods grace.

But I will say this, he as well as every member on the staff of Queen of Peace are human beings and make mistakes. This IS a Church you want to go to, send your kids to and be a part of. You will get to hear the truth from it's Pastor and at times that truth will make you angry. It has been my experience that people get angry enough to slander people then they know they, themselves are wrong and to hard headed to see the truth

Dolly C.. I read your review and have such great sadness for you. It is apparent that you are angry and misinformed. Father O'Doherty is by far a superior Priest filled with the Heart of Jesus and led by the Holy Spirit. He shepherds his flock with love and kindness. He speaks The Truth, as his deepest concern is for the souls of his parishioners, even if it means upsetting a select few of them. All were offered the opportunity to "March for Life". You are obviously misinformed on the purpose of the "March for Life" as well. It is held in Washington DC because that is were our government is. It is held on the anniversary of Roe v Wade (made law 38 years ago). We are marching with 400-500 "thousand" others in order to make the greatest impact. If you want to March for Life in Ocala.. I am sure that you could organize a group and march! In addition, 50 people rode a bus for 16 hours in order to participate, and marched in 20 degree weather. They then turned around and rode the bus for another 16 hours back home to Ocala. In addition, many of those people slept on the floor of a local parish. 5 people flew and those people paid their own airfare. Please do not humiliate yourself further, by scandalizing the good name of our beloved priest. May the peace and love of our lord and savior be with you always.

We visited twice the school & left a message for Linda, in charge for the pre school however we didn't get any response. The montessori doesn't have enough staff to man the school. Linda is in charge in teaching & guest relation. We're very disappointed Catholic parents!

I attended Queen of Peace while living in Ocala for a few years. The church is breathtaking with all the artwork. The pipe organs are unreal. I was in awe each time I entered that church but most of all I felt a real closeness to god. Father Patrick has a special gift in reaching the people with his sermons. I miss both the church and Father Patrick and hope to return soon.

Whether you are CAtholic or not, this church should be on your list of things to see in Ocala! The artwork alone is museum quality. It is also one of the largest churches you will see in a town this size. The setting is idyllic, located outside the city limits past the mall, past the new hospital and in the middle of some very picturesque pasture land. You must see it!
