Whether a member or visitor, you are welcome to become involved in our parish in whatever way the Lord is leading you. Together, we will labor and pray to build up the Kingdom of God in our world.

BISHOP’ S APPEAL:This weekend our parish will be joining parishes throughout the Diocese of Youngstown making a commitment to the 2016 Bishop’s Appeal for Catholic Charities and Church.

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!

Do you have a prayer intention for yourself, a loved one, a friend?
If you do, we would be happy to add it to our prayer line.
You can:
1. Place your prayer requests in the Book of Prayer at the back of each church.
2. Call Jean Fasnacht at 440-293-3179
or Carolyn Barker at 330-876-0677
to be placed on the prayer line of both parishes.
3. Email your prayer request to melaniegiff@gmail.com and they will be entered into the book and added to prayer line.
