Where has all the summer gone?” Many colleges are already back in session… teachers, students and parents are busy getting ready for the new school year at OLV and our public schools…Mary’s Feast of the Assumption and our annual “harvest Mass” have been celebrated. (Thanks to Jonathan and Brenda Piekarski and all who came to the farm Mass…) AND there are only two summer Sunday 7:00 p.m. Masses remaining… this Sunday and next. Many thanks for all the birthday kindness last weekend (never thought I’d say “oh to be fifty again”!)…and may God bless these remaining days of August…enjoy!
This weekend we commission Eileen Shelly for special homebound ministry and coordinator of Eucharistic Ministry to our nursing homes. Eileen brings the loving presence of Christ in a very special way. She can be contacted at email@example.com
OLV Fall Festival
A short four weeks from now is the Our Lady of Victory Church Fall Festival on September 16. Come and enjoy a turkey dinner and homemade pie from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The cost of the meal is $10 adults, $5 for ages 6-12, and 5 and under are FREE. Other activities during the day will be a Quilt Raffle at 2:00 p.m., a Silent Auction, Cake Walk, Bingo, Adult and Children’s Games, and a Beer and Wine Garden.
Please continue to sell tickets for the Raffle Drawing. If you need more, stop in to the parish office or pick some up after Masses. The Grand Prize for the raffle is a 2018 Chevy Cruze. Other great prizes are a See-Through Kayak, and a Lakeside Weekend at East Lake Resort. There are also many cash prizes.
If you want to donate prizes for the Children’s Raffle or the Silent Auction, they may be dropped off at the parish office. We ask for new items, please.
Thank you to those who have signed up to help out with the various duties involved with the Fall Festival. Perhaps it would be fun to recruit some friends to work with you. Let’s get the sheets filled soon!
God bless you all for your hard work in making this a successful Fall Festival for our parish. Your efforts are appreciated!
