BISHOP’ S APPEAL
Thank you for your prayerful reflection and generous response to the Annual Appeal.

WE ARE IN NEED OF EUCHARISTIC MINISTERS!!!
If you are a Eucharistic Minister and would be willing to visit Andover Village Retirement Community on Wednesdays to distribute Communion, please call the office. We are hoping to get enough volunteers to share this ministry so that each person would only need to go once a month or so. Thank you for prayerfully considering helping in this ministry. There are about 20 Catholics in residence at AVRC.

OLV PARISH COUNCIL is seeking members
for the Evangelization and Outreach Committee, as well as the Family Life Committee. The Evangelization and Outreach Committee seeks, through prayerful discernment, an awareness of the spiritual needs of the parish. Its goal is to stir up the flames of faith in all parishioners toward a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The committee also coordinates outreach to the community. The Family Life Committee works to strengthen the bonds within families and between parishioners and the broader church community through various social events. Anyone who may be interested in either position, please see Fr. Jeff or any parish council member.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Would you please prayerfully discern helping out as a Liturgical Minister? At Our Lady of Victory there is a particular need of Lectors and Eucharistic Ministers especially at the 4:00 p.m. Mass on Saturday; ushers are needed at all Masses; Altar Servers are also needed as we are down to only 3. We also need a Eucharistic Minister to visit Andover Village Retirement Center every other week as there is a rather large Catholic population in residence there If you feel you are being led to any of these ministries, please call the office at 440-293-6218. Thank you!
