Welcome to Our Lady of Victory

A Note from Father Alan

Happy SUNday-FUNday this weekend everyone as we    gather for the 10:30 Mass outdoors at Roosevelt Park (weather providing) and a pig roast luncheon to  follow.  There will be fellowship, entertainment  and fun for the whole family.  It’s always beautiful to worship in God’s “original chapel”, the world of nature. Thanks to the  Stewardship Committee and their collaborators for putting this on for the parish and community.

 

One take-away from the recent RCIA Conference in   Chicago… One of the speakers really emphasized that it’s the whole parish community that needs to be on board as the “RCIA team”! In other words, all of us are about the work of evangelizing, inviting and witnessing.  It’s the spirit of the  entire community that draws people to us and to our Church….and ultimately to Christ.  So guess what, this fall when we have our Time and Talent Stewardship  sign-up….you’ll all be automatically a part of our RCIA team!   Thank you for doing a good job these past couple years especially of attracting   new   members  to   our   Catholic Church. We really have a treasure to share…the  sacraments, the rich traditions and teachings of our Church.  Mammas, Rosemary and I were all enriched and energized by the conference.

 

A little update on my Dad, Albert…Thanks for the prayers last weekend.   He  is  now  the  proud  recipient  of  both  a  heart pacemaker and defibrillator helping him deal with a condition of congestive heart failure.  He has been doing some rehab to regain his strength and is in good spirits and determined to cooperate with all the doctor’s orders!  Dad is 87 and so the recent experience of taking him to the emergency room,  having him transferred to another  hospital, and receiving the cardiac treatment has been quite a time of turning to God and being trusting and   thankful.  I know that so many of you have had similar experiences with family and friends.  It was great to         experience the support of our local parish and priests and  friends and relatives too. 

 

Next weekend I will be celebrating the 50th Anniversary Mass of my aunt and uncle, Keith and Cele Bentler in the cities, and then on Sunday attending a Wielinski family   reunion.  (How many of you have been to one of those this summer?!) Please welcome Fr. Joe Korf for the weekend Masses July 21, 22 and also wish him a “happy retirement” as he begins this new, happy phase of life!  I will take a few days of vacation before and after the weekend. 

 

God bless your week!
