Lenten Little Black Book: Copies of the Little Black Book, a daily meditation for the Lenten season, are available at the church entryways.

The Light is on for You: Beginning on March 13th, and on all Wednesdays in Lent, “The Light Is On For You” program will run at OLV. From 5:00 – 6:30pm Confessions will be heard in the church.  Other times for confession are Saturday 4:00-5:00pm, and by appointment.

THANKS to some generous parishioners, you notice this weekend several updates in the church. Over many years the beautiful old material on the wall beneath the baldachino had been attacked by several molds. Despite many attempts it could no longer be cleaned. During its removal an open live electrical outlet was discovered! While installing the new dry wall, the outlet was closed and converted to a usable outlet. And the lovely hand carved linden wood crucifix has been suspended over the altar of sacrifice, offering an aesthetically pleasing connection between the sacramental and the Holy Sacrifice being celebrated below. Before Easter, doors with translucent panels will be installed in the confessional, and a tapestry of Our Lady of Victory will be hung in the sanctuary.

  • Saturday, April 20th (Great Easter Vigil): We will be welcoming new candidates and catechumens into the faith
