Jesus brings life to Our Lady of Victory Church 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.
Even though it is not a holy day of obligation this year, we will have a mass for The Solemnity of The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary this Saturday, August 15th at 9am. There will be NO 8am mass that day.

Everyone loves the beauty and innocence of a baby. As an expression of that love, OLV announces a spiritual adoption program for young and old alike.
Over the next nine months, which began the weekend of September 7-8, the members of our parish family will have the opportunity to spiritually adopt a child who is newly conceived .
You may “adopt” a child individually or as a family. You will be asked to name the child for whom you will be praying, thereby giving the baby the humanity he or she deserves. As we all know the power of prayer is great.
You will receive monthly reports through a parish display describing your baby’s development. Each month we will print the prayer for the unborn in the bulletin. Please keep this prayer and commit to praying it every day. Our babies will be born in June.
There are millions of unborn babies desperately in need of your prayers. Please spiritually adopt and share the love that God has given you. This is a beautiful way to teach young children to respect all life.
