Dear Parish Family,
Since my arrival at Our Lady of Victory parish just over three months ago, I have been truly amazed at the numerous ministries and activities that occur in our parish. As I have reflected on all that our parish community does within the parish and for the greater community, I can't help but think that we truly live the Gospel call of serving God by serving others.
Ministries such as homebound parishioner's outreach, the education of our youth in the school and in religious education classes, welcoming of people into the faith through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, our bereavement ministry and the many ministries that are carried out by The Beacon on the Hill are such wonderful examples of what Church should be! The great thing is that Our Lady of Victory parish community does it and does it well!
We are truly blessed with so many wonderful parishioners who volunteer their time, talent and treasure in service to Christ's mission, and I am extremely grateful for all that they do. However, even with all this volunteer effort, we still face the reality of maintaining our aging facilities, paying salaries, benefits, insurances, utilities and numerous other day to day expenses.
I am writing to request that you prayerfully consider making a gift to the annual parish fund drive. This annual fundraising effort significantly helps our parish meet its financial obligations and we truly cannot do that without your help. Your contribution no matter how large or small will be used to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to all whom we serve through our liturgies, evangelization efforts and in the carrying out of the many Corporal Works of Mercy that our parish does so well.
In closing, I would like to thank the Our Lady of Victory parishioners for their graciousness, kindness and welcoming support shown to Father Collins and myself since our arrival here in late June. While I understand that 2017 has been a very difficult year with so many changes, our parish is blessed with God's presence as evident by your spirit, support and goodness. We look forward to a continued vibrant and strong parish community.
Thank you very much for your prayerful consideration and support of Our Lady of Victory Parish.
Sincerely yours in Christ
Reverend Kevin M. Dillon
