This Yelp review makes me so proud of my parish...

"I really used to dislike conservative Catholic churches and wanted all conservative churches to change to become more liberal, but for Our Lady of Peace, I hope this very conservative church never changes and here's why....

When you are experiencing a deep sadness you've never felt before, let's say your Grandmother (who you were close with) just passed away late at night and all you can do is cry, those same traditional conservative Catholics you can't stand will be up at 1:00AM praying the rosary for you at Our Lady of Peace.

Our Lady of Peace is one of the few churches in all of Santa Clara County that really means what its says. When it says "We have a 24 hour adoration chapel and pray the rosary every hour on the hour" THEY MEAN IT.

I went into Our Lady of Peace on a Tuesday night around 11:42PM after I learned my Grandma past away - low and behold there were a dozen people praying the rosary. Thank God they were there because I was too sad to say the words, but deep down I knew crying in church and allowing myself to mourn is what I needed to do.

Mind you this is NOT my regular church, but when life takes out a piece of your heart late at night, Our Lady of Peace (as conservative as it may be) will be open to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, because no one should be denied the chance to see Jesus whenever they want."

And I really ought to be there for Adoration more often...
