Our Lady of Victory

Mission


"You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the greatest and first commandment. The second is like it. You shall love your neighbor as yourself. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations."  Matthew 22:37 & 28:19 

At Our Lady of Victory, we strive to live this out in our daily lives. Our mission is to equip parishioners to do the same: to love God completely, to serve each other joyfully, and to form ourselves and each other into disciples of Christ. We want you to know that no matter your state in life, you are called to holiness. There is a place for you here.
