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.
“So it is written that the Christ would suffer and on the third day rise from the dead” – Luke 24:46
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
For the past several years, Our Lady of Victory Parish has been involved in several building and major maintenance projects. The cost of these projects have amounted to over five million dollars ($5,000,000). By the grace of God and your generosity, these expenses have been paid off. With a few projects unfinished yet, (such as, statuary in the Prayer Garden, Permanent stand for Church Statuary) the parish has to do the regular maintenance of the facilities. To show our gratitude to God, the parish has donated $50,000 to the Church in Haiti. The parish Our Lady of Victory is helping in the Diocese of Les Cayes in North East Haiti. The Bishop of Les Cayes has assigned us Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in that Diocese. I have heard from Father Jean Macnel, Pastor of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel. Father says the parish is nine years old; it has 375 children in school; the parish consists of a main church and school with six chapels. The major challenges Father lists are: add on to the school which now has 375 students; install a floor in the church and install electricity in the rectory and church/school complex. The parish has 8000 members.
We hope to correspond with the parish regularly and to involve the children in the Religious Education Program in I this parish aid project. More information will be forthcoming.
Thank you for your support.
