Sacrament of Confirmation

Congratulations to the boys and girls of Our Lady of Victories Schools who were confirmed by Fr Kieran McDermott on Saturday 6th May. Thank you to their parents and
teachers who prepared them so well. Thank you to our school chaplain, the
teachers and SNAs, principals, music teachers, choir and our flower group and
all involved.

Guided Prayer

 A week of guided prayer for our Glasnevin Grouping of Parishes will be commencing with an opening meeting on Sunday 11th June at 7.45pm (slightly later time than originally advertised.) The venue for this opening meeting is Our Lady of Victories Church . We look forward to welcoming the participants who have signed up to this initiative.

Great success

Saturday 6th May the Gospel Choir travelled to Navan to compete in the 38th Navan Choral Festival. The Choir were also invited to sing at the 6pm Vigil Mass in St. Mary’s Navan, where Fr. Fintan concelebrated with  Fr. Robert McCabe CC from St. Mary’s parish. On Sunday 7th May, the Choir competed in three competitions, the first was the Popular Music Competition where they were competing with nine other choirs and the second competition was the Gospel Choir competition where they were competing with 5 other choirs. In both competitions they won 1st place. In the gospel choir competition they were awarded a score of 95 which is the highest mark the judge has ever awarded a choir.

In the evening the choir competed in the final competition, "The National Choir of the Year", where they were awarded 2nd place, just 2 points short of 1st place.

We would like to thank the parish community for all the support and encouragement the choir receives and the choir are always delighted and proud to represent OLV at a national level among choirs from all over the country. We would also like to thank Fr. Fintan for his consistent support of the choir and its development.

Spring Clean:Thank you

Thanks to all the volunteers who turned up (armed with hoovers in many cases!) for our Easter Spring Clean here in  Our Lady of Victories Church on Saturday 8th April . We succeeded in getting the entire Church hoovered, dusted and polished, despite power failures. It was great to see familiar and new faces and thanks to Greg for the gur cake, which went down a treat.
