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.
All Saint’s Day is November 1st, honoring all saints, known and unknown.
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.
