Baptism of the Lord - January 9-10, 2010

The Rectory Office will be closed for business this Tuesday, January 12th, from 11:00 A.M.-3:00 P.M. 

The staff will be attending a Diocesan meeting at St. Martin of Tours that day.



On this feast of the Baptism of the Lord, we begin National Vocation Awareness Week.  Renew your Baptismal commitment as you consider your call to serve God in your particular vocation.  Hopefully some of you will hear a call to the priesthood, diaconate or religious life and will be open to that possibility.  If you would like assistance or more information, please visit the Diocesan Vocation website @

PRAYER FOR VOCATIONS: Loving God, You call us through our baptism in the Spirit to continue the mission of Your beloved Son, Jesus.  Open us to listen attentively for Your invitation.  Empower us to respond to Your call.  Inspire women and men to follow the path of service.  Together may we build up the Church to be a vibrant sign of Your presence in our world.   We offer this prayer in the name of Your Son, Jesus, through the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

St. Victor’s recently changed our software to ParishSoft.  When the information was merged with our Parish Data Systems information, it did not merge well.  We are asking that you please go over your contribution statements and ADA mailing when you receive it – make sure the names, addresses and other information are completely correct.  We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause you.

Those families who use the parish envelope system will soon be receiving statements of contribution(s) for determining the amounts given by each family in Regular, Special and Development fund collections.  These statements are done out of courtesy for you and are very useful in preparing your income tax returns.  We thank you for your continued support ant generosity.

PLEASE NOTE: Catholic Foundation and ADA contribution statements will be mailed to you directly from those Diocesan Offices.
