A Note of Thanks

by Fr. Rich

I would just like to express my thanks to all who help, work and volunteer at Our Lady of Victory and make the job of pastor a lot easier. Fr. Tom Ciba has been a great help to me especially since my surgery. Deacon Len has done an exceptional job in taking on more responsibilities. […]

THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

by Fr. Rich

The last few weeks have been like a whirlwind for me. Between lung surgery, a ten day hospital stay recuperation period far longer than I wanted or expect and the isolation, made it all a difficult time. Your prayers, well-wishes, cards and sentiments made everything pass quickly. Thank you for your concerns, your remembrances and […]

Thank You for your generous support in our Christmas Collection

by Fr. Rich

I want to say Thank You for your generous support in our Christmas Collection. The total amount received was $16,681.00.

Hot Days of Summer

by Fr. Rich

We complain in the winter, it’s too cold.  we complain in the summer, it’s too hot.  I think we just like to complain.  Jesus hears our complaints.  He hears our requests.  He hears our joys.  And he responds to what he hears.  Maybe a feeling of peace in one’s heart;  maybe an inspirational thought; maybe […]

Summer Months

by Fr. Rich

As I write this, school is about to finish for this year and the CCD (Religious Education) program has completed.  Unfortunately, that also seems to be the time when many of the children seem to disappear from Mass.  Many of those smiling faces, the hand slaps and the little hugs are not there every Sunday.  […]
