Important Notice

Dear Congregants and Visitors,

We are currently experiencing technical difficulties with our phone and internet services at Our Lady of Victories Church. As a result, we are unable to respond to emails and our church webcam is temporarily unavailable.

Additionally, calls to the church office are being diverted. We are working diligently to resolve these issues, but it may take up to 3 days to fully restore our services.

We understand the inconvenience this may cause and we sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding during this time. We will keep you updated on our progress and look forward to resuming our regular communication channels as soon as possible.

Thank you for your continued support.

Best Regards,
Our Lady of Victories Church

An Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus,
I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love you above all things,
and I desire to receive you into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace you now as if you were already there
and I unite myself wholly to you.
Never permit me to be separated from you.
Amen.

Fr. Frank
