If you are looking for a church home, we welcome you to join our family here! We believe you will find us to be a loving, caring, and friendly parish! Here at Our Lady of Victory we believe you are special and very important! Most of all, Jesus knows that! That is why He died on the cross; for you, and for the whole world! That is why He rose from the grave; for you, and for the whole world.
Advent, which comes from the Latin word for “arrival” or “coming,” is a period of preparation for the birth of our Lord. Advent begins four Sundays before Christmas and is the start of the Christmas season, which lasts through the Baptism of Our Lord.
Father, we pray for your protection and guidance over our Holy Father, Pope Francis I. Give him strength and wisdom to stand as a prophet for our times. May he be a light in darkness around which we gather in hope. We ask you to bring about reconciliation through his faithful teaching of peace and justice. Grant him compassion and care to live the gospel in love and service to all people. Let him follow in the path of Peter and Paul who, filled with the Holy Spirit, preached that the Lord saves all who call upon his name.
We are a group of people bound together by our belief in Jesus Christ. Through our baptism, we are called to share in His work. Therefore we pledge ourselves through the ideal of shared ministry to build a community where all are welcomed, loved, needed and appreciated; to celebrate the gift of life together in word and sacrament; and to promote justice, peace and equality for all people.
- Our Lady of Victory Mission Statement
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has asked that all dioceses in the United States hold a special collection to raise desperately needed funds to assist the recovery following the devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan. Bishop Campbell has designated the weekend of November 30-December 1, 2013 for this collection.
This storm destroyed entire villages and wrecked cities across the Philippines and Vietnam. As many as 10,000 people are feared dead and more than 9 million people have been affected. The full extent of structural damage is still unknown. On this weekend that follows our national celebration of Thanksgiving, let us show our gratitude for the good things we enjoy by supporting those who are suffering in the Philippines and southeast Asia.
We wish to thank the Knights of Columbus and all the parishioners, including the Youth, who helped with the Spaghetti Dinner last Sunday.
Last November 9, the Parish held the Annual Holiday Bazaar. Special thanks to Mary Waterfield and Judith Mitchell who co-chaired the event. We thank all those parishioners who, through their generosity and hard work, helped make the event a big success. Net proceeds: $4,266.21. Thank you!
