UPCOMING EVENTS

OLV Tour and Father Baker Talk

When you were little did your parents threaten to send you to Father Baker’s if you misbehaved?  Did you know that this year is the 100th anniversary of the laying of the cornerstone for Our Lady of Victory Basilica?

If you would like to learn more, our Parish has arranged for a private tour of the Basilica. This will be followed by a talk on the life and canonization status of Fr. Baker by Rev. Msgr. Paul Burkard, Vice Postulator for Fr. Baker’s canonization. There is no charge for this event.

The date of our outing is December 1, 2021.  We will meet at the Basilica at 4:00 PM and the tour /talk will last about 1 ½ hours.  If you would like to attend this event with a group of your fellow parishioners, please call Sue McDonough at the parish office (662-9339) and have her put your name on the list.  We would like to have a count of those attending so OLV will be prepared for the size of our group.  We hope you can join us!

JOIN US FOR THE ROSARY

One of our most powerful weapons is the Rosary. It is not enough to carry the Rosary in your purse or pocket or have it sitting around the house or hanging from the rearview mirror of your car. We need to say it, and it can be more comforting and powerful when said in a group. Think about joining us in the Adoration Chapel on Mondays from 10am to 11am. Everyone is welcome. 

On most Fridays at 6pm, the Rosary is also prayed in the church. Join us!

 

Haiti Gift Card Fundraiser

We raise funds for our twin parish of St. Michael the Archangel in Coq Chante, Haiti by selling gift cards. Without sufficient funding, the continued operation of the medical clinic at our twin parish is in jeopardy. The medical clinic provides the only available healthcare in Coq Chante and its continued operation is critical for the health of the people. The suggested donation per Healthcare gift card is $50 but any donation amount per card is most welcome. There are blank cards that can be used for any occasion. Please consider stocking up on blank cards to use throughout the year for birthdays, graduations and many other occasions. Cards are located in Nativity church’s narthex.

To donate, click on “online giving” at the top right of this page, or pick up an order form in the narthex of the church.
THANK YOU!
