Jesus brings life to Our Lady of Victory Parish when He says “I am the vine, you are the branches.” Guided by the Holy Spirit in the Roman Catholic tradition, we are called to minister to the spiritual formation as well as the emotional, physical and social needs of our members and the community at large. We imitate Mary whose faith led her to accept God’s mission so that we may live out our mission. As Mary serves as a model of hope for us, we as people of hope remain as life-giving branches on the vine.

Humanae Vitae Evening of Prayer, June 8
The evening will include Vespers (at 6:30 p.m.) and Praise and Worship (8 to 9 p.m.). The centerpiece will still be the Prayer for Healing and Courage from 7 to 8 p.m. Here we will pray for healing from the fear of new life, from the effects of contraception and the dissent from the teaching by some church leaders, and courage to be open to new life and adoption, and strength for parents in raising their children. It will be an evening of intercession that we offer as a spiritual family. Feel free to come to any (or all!) of the parts of the evening.
Humanae Vitae Speaker Series, June 14, 21, and 18

Look for more details on this in the next couple weeks.
