Our Lady Queen of Peace, North Side
This parish is presently located at:
Our Lady Queen of Peace was established on September 28, 1981. The parish was established through the merger of St. Mary and Mary Immaculate-St. Cyprian parishes. The immediate cause of the merger was the purchase of St. Mary by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation to make room for highway construction. Due to the declining population of the North Side, the diocese decided to merge the two parishes and use the Mary Immaculate-St. Cyprian Church for the new parish.
This parish had a short life. The population of the North Side continued to drop and in 1993 the parish was merged with St. Peter, North Side. The new parish retained the name St. Peter. Our Lady Queen of Peace Church remains open and continues to serve the new parish.
