Welcome to Our Lady of Victory

A Note from Father Alan

 

MANY THANKS to Diane and Jeff Aschnewitz, Randy and    Jill    Fischer    and   all  of   the  Parish  Mission Committee for a very fine experience this past week with lay evangelist Mark Price.  All the planning and  attentiveness to details paid off and even the weather improved right when we needed it to!  As we journey through Lent, may we continue conversing and  reflecting on what we heard and felt through the gifts of Mark’s ministry and faith.

 

Enclosed with this bulletin is an important letter from Bishop Kettler regarding the near future pastoral care of parishes in our diocese.  Each parish will very soon be a part of an Area Catholic Community in which we are asked to bring to a higher level the collaboration and cooperation with others in serving the needs of the area Catholics.  Our ACC will include St. Leonard’s in Pelican Rapids, St. Elizabeth in Elizabeth and Our Lady of Victory. I feel I am at an advantage because I already know of the special gifts of each of these   parishes….having in the past served as pastor of both  St. Elizabeth’s and St. Leonard’s. I look forward to     working with our ACC committee and planning  together for the future.  Please read the letter from Bishop Kettler for more background  information!

 

One of the takeaways from Mark Price was how his ministry really all started through devoting an hour a day to prayer, as recommended long ago by Bishop Fulton Sheen on his radio program. Can this Lent be your time to start this daily practice?

 

Especially now during Lent, the Sacrament of  Reconciliation calls to us. Special times will be  announced soon. Also, take advantage of the other Lenten aids that are available to you. The Stations of the Cross are prayed Friday nights at 7:15 and also at 2:00 with the OLV School children on March 29 and April 12.  Rice Bowls are on the round table in the gathering area. They can be used to collect your loose change or the money you would have spent on whatever you offered up for Lent. The money will be given to Catholic Relief Services to be used for the needs of the poor.

 

Blessings as we continue on our Lenten journey!
