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.
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 2014 Bishop’s Annual Appeal will begin on May 3 and 4, 2014. It is the largest individual funding source for the pastoral and charitable ministries and programs of the Diocese of Columbus. This year’s theme “Christ the Sure Foundation” reminds us that He is our source of strength from which all blessings flow. In establishing His church on earth Christ entrusted to us its care and the care of each other. Your willingness to share these gifts for the benefit of others is an act of faith and helps to form us all into the people the Lord has called us to be.
Our parish has been asked to raise $58,878. This year the parish will combine the Bishop Annual Appeal with Our Lady of Victory Maintenance Appeal. Monies the parish raises above the appeal target will be returned to the parish. The parish will use the refund to finance parish maintenance projects. Maintenance projects include:
I am most grateful for your willingness to share your time, your talent and your treasures in support of our Diocese and Parish Community.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
