Thank You Very Much

THANK YOU to all the St. Victor’s parents and students, who worked on the Spaghetti Dinner last Sunday.  A very special thank you to Ross are surely an “Italian chef”...the food was excellent.  To parishioner, Bill Neves, thanks for all of your “special” help!  A standing ovation for our entertainers: Father Paul-Cuong Phan, Free Spirit (Rey Trevino & Mike Tatarakis) and the U.n.I Lord Teen Choir.  A bouquet of thanks to McDonald’s and Alsco for their generous donations for this event. A round of applause to all our U.n.I. Lord teens who came in on Saturday to set-up and came back on Sunday to serve and then clean-up afterwards.  St. Victor’s Parish Community is proud of you.  God has truly blessed St. Victor’s with wonderful parishioners and friends.  Thanks to all who supported this function.  For anyone that I may have forgotten – Thank you!                     Alice Trigg


FOR SAFETY SAKE.  For your safety as well as the safety of others, we ask your cooperation with St. Victor’s, the Police Department and the Fire Department by parking in designated areas only.   We especially need the fire lanes to be left open and clear. (You may be ticketed!)  As a courtesy to others, we ask you to follow traffic signs in and out of the parish grounds.  Please also obey the posted signs – Speed Limit of 5 miles per hour - when driving on the parish grounds.  We hope those few traffic rules will help keep everyone safe, and smooth any traffic flow problems we may have.





EASTSIDE F.I.S.H. food collection is this weekend.  Please bring your non-perishable foods (peanut butter, tuna, macaroni & cheese, canned fruits & vegetables, etc.) and place them in the box in the vestibule of the Church.  Thanks!
