...A community of joyful disciples knowing, loving, and serving God and each other.

Our Lady of Victory Church

 

Welcome

To be welcome means you are invited  not by anything you have or have not done, but by God’s will to love you into existence.  By that will and grace we are all created in the image of God and see His face in your face.

You are a child of God.  

If you’ve been away from the Catholic Church, been searching for God, have felt hopeless or unwanted, have had no faith or are just wondering how you can do better in this life--if you have felt alone, unloved, without a home, without a family, if you have struggled, been marginalized, forgotten, or pushed aside--if you have been in the dark Christ offers you His light, Christ is the Light!

Regardless of where you are on life’s journey or in your spiritual life, we welcome you to join us as we live the two great commandments: To love God with our whole being and to love our neighbors as ourselves.  “...Over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity." Colossians 3:14

 

 

Our Lady of Victory Church and Our Lady of the Snow Mission is a community of joyful disciples knowing, loving, and serving God and each other.

“Are you troubled?  Think but of Jesus – speak but the name of Jesus, the clouds disperse and peace descends anew from heaven.  Have you fallen into sin? So that you fear death?  ..invoke the name of Jesus and you will soon feel life returning.  No obduracy of the soul, no weakness, no coldness of heart can resist this holy name – there is no heart which will not soften and open in tears at this holy name.”

St Bernard of Clairvaux – (1090-1153) – Doctor of the Church

COVID19 Update

Dear Parishioners,
 
As you know, on December 10, Governor Hochul announced a statewide mandate requiring face masks to be worn by everyone in all public places unless businesses or venues have implemented a COVID-19 vaccine requirement. Since a vaccine requirement would be impossible for churches to implement, I ask that all who attend our public Masses and other gatherings and gatherings in our parish remain compliant. Our Diocese has asked us to take this directive very seriously and to do all we can to ensure the safety of those who worship and gather with us. (Houses of worship are considered public spaces.)
 
Parish office staff and visitors will also be required to wear masks at all times except when eating, drinking or alone in an enclosed room. I am also asking parishioners to comply with our Bishop’s request at the beginning of the pandemic to receive Holy Communion in the hand at this time. Of course, no one will be made uncomfortable if they choose otherwise, but I do ask you to seriously consider foregoing the reception of the Eucharistic Lord on the tongue until this current resurgence ends. I realize this is difficult for some, but in light of the current escalation, this is a prudent way for us to receive Our Lord at this time.
 
All other safety protocols will be observed: the encouragement of social distancing and the use of hand sanitizer while in public. Like you, I pray daily for an end to the pandemic, and especially for those afflicted and those who care for them. We hold a special place in our prayers and hearts for families who have lost loved ones to this virus.
 
You are daily in my heart and prayers.
 
Fr. Tom
