Our Lady of Victory Parish has been serving the Lord in the Palisades community since 1909. We welcome you to join us for worship, fellowship and religious education for all ages. Our mission is to faithfully embrace and promote the values and teachings of Christ through worship, education and service to others.
Welcome to Our Lady of Victory
Please Wear a Mask During Mass: The Archdiocese of Washington has just updated their corona virus guidelines. We are to wear masks again when indoors. Please follow these guidelines at all of our Masses this weekend, and until further notice. Much appreciated!
Adoration - Wednesday evenings: You are all welcome every Wednesday for an hour of Adoration in front of the Blessed Sacrament from 7pm to 8pm in the church. During this hour, the priest will be available for confessions. We will end it with a benediction.
SECOND COLLECTIONS: Catholic Communication/Human Development: The Catholic Campaign for Human Development is the national anti-poverty program U.S. Catholic Bishops, working to carry out the mission of Jesus Christ "... to bring glad to the poor ... liberty to captives ... sight to the blind, and let the oppressed go free." (Luke 4:18) The belief that those who are directly affected by unjust systems and structures have best insight into knowing how to change them is central to CCHD. CCHD works to break the cycle of poverty by helping low-income people participate in decisions that affect their families and communities. CCHD offers a hand up, not a hand out. Today we also take up the collection for the Catholic Communication Campaign (CCC). Your support helps the CCC connect people to Christ and builds Catholic communities in the United States and around the world using the internet, television, radio, and print media. Half the funds we collect remain here in the Archdiocese of Washington to support local efforts. Be a part of this campaign to spread the Gospel message. Support the collection today! To learn more, visit www.usccb.org/ccc.
Hospitality: Please join us after the 10:30am Mass for hospitality under the tent in the parking lot. Panera will be catering the coffee and goodies!
Flocknote: We are thrilled to introduce “Flocknote” to OLV Parish! Created by Catholics for Catholic Parishes, Flocknote is a modern communications tool which will enable parishioners to stay up-to-date with Parish and Ministry news. Parishioners can choose their preferred way to receive information – text and/or email – and can also choose which information you’d like to receive – the weekly bulletin, reminders for Mass times as well as Holy Days, invitations to Parish events, and so on. If you’re involved in groups or committees at OLV, Flocknote will allow you communicate with your group more efficiently. Please read the weekly bulletin to learn more.
Lifting of the Dispensation from Holy Mass: Please take a moment to watch this video message from Cardinal Wilton Gregory and the Archdiocese of Washington welcoming parishioners back to Mass now that the dispensation has been lifted as of June 26, 2021.
