The Church of Our Lady of Victory is a community of people in a primarily non-Catholic area in the Diocese of St. Cloud.

A Note from Father Alan ..
We celebrate the Great Easter Feast of Christ’s Resurrection! Alleluia, He is risen as He said! The best part of Jesus’ resurrection is that it is the promise of our resurrection as well. Just like Jesus, after we have visited the “Bethlehems”, “Galilees”, and “Jerusalems” of our lives...after we have carried our cross and followed Jesus, after we die with Him...we will rise to eternal life. Already today, this Easter Sunday, Jesus shares with us some of His new, resurrected life. Through His living Word, in the Gospel; and in His body and blood given in the Eucharist...which is the flesh and blood not of the dead Jesus on the Cross, but the Risen Lord who lives forever. As we receive Jesus in these ways, welcoming Him in our hearts and lives, the risen Lord lives through us.
WELCOME ARLENE HEGGE AND CLARENCE COLE, newly received into the Church at the Easter Vigil! MANY THANKS to all who helped make Lent and Holy Week special times of grace and prayer, especially our musical and all the liturgical ministries, church decorators, those who prepared the RCIA candidates, all who have been reaching out to the poor and sick, those helping our children and youth prepare for Confirmation and First Communion.
CONFIRMATION will be celebrated here at OLV next Sunday, April 27th, at 2:00 p.m. All are welcome!
FIRST COMMUNION will take place on the following Sunday, May 4th, at the 10:30 a.m. Mass.
SPECIAL ADULT EDUCATION OPPORTUNITY: You are invited to journey with Pope Francis through Easter with a special study and discussion of His apostolic letter, JOY OF THE GOSPEL. Sessions will be held on Tuesdays at 1:30 and 6:30 p.m. beginning April 29th. We have some great leadership from parishioners emerging for these sessions. Please call the office to register so we know how many study books to purchase.
Happy and Blessed Easter!
