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

About Us


Our Lady of Victory is located in historic Troy, NY on a beautiful campus near Frear Park.  Our campus holds the Rectory, our Church building, OLV Early Childhood Center, our parish center and our Parish Office.  We extend our Church to our mission parish, Mission: Our Lady of the Snow located in Grafton, NY scenicly tucked on Owen Road.  Pastorally we provide Sacramental support to a nearby parish, Christ Sun of Justice on the RPI Campus.  The three locations offer varying ministries and opportunities and combined we provide Daily and Sunday Mass, Eucharistic Adoration, Reconciliation as well as a Food Pantry. 

We have two priests that live on campus providing for all the Sacramental needs of the Church.  Father Randall Patterson has been in residence since 1996 and serves as our Pastor.  Father Samuel Bellafiore was ordained by Bishop Sharfenberger in June of 2019 and serves as our Associate Pastor.

Our Faith Formation program runs from September to May and offers Sacramental prep for all grade levels from our youngest Church members to our continuing faith journeys as adults with RCIA and Adult Faith Formation.   Our many ministries offer multiple opportunities to work with our local community or to serve our parish directly through deed or action.  Please contact us to find out more information on how you can serve as a parishioner.
