Helping Hands

Helping Hands

OLVHH.jpgHelping Hands is a brand-new ministry for Our Lady of Victory. We are a group of parishioners who care deeply about the well-being of the parish community and its members. We strive to help our parish family by providing assistance in welcoming new parishioners, providing meals (and prayers!) for grieving or struggling parish families, lending a hand with parish functions and activities, and helping to cultivate a warm and inviting environment around the parish and school. 

 

Children, let us love not in word or speech but in deed and truth.  1 John 3:18
