Please see a second letter from Fr. Michael who is on his way to Afghanistan, click here.



Today’s second collection is for St. Victor’s Development Fund.  This fund assists with the never-ending repairs and projects on the parish grounds.  Thank you for your support.


Have a good, fun-filled holiday, may it be a safe one!  Between the picnics and the fireworks, take a moment to remember the God Who has given our country its freedom, its bounty and its proud history.  Thank God, His hand has blessed us, as Americans and as His children.

WELCOME to all visitors.  We hope that you enjoy your time and celebration with us.

Our Sympathy and Prayers

In Loving Memory

Catechetical Ministry (CM) registration will be held Thursday & Friday, September 10th & 11th, from 4:00-8:00 P.M., Saturday, September 12th, from 9:00 A.M.-3:00 P.M. and Sunday, September 13th, from 8:00 A.M.-2:00 P.M. in the parish center.  All those who will be signing-up their student(s) to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation (Confession), First Eucharist (Communion) or Confirmation must bring an original or a copy of their child’s BAPTISMAL certificate. It’s always good practice to bring the original or a copy, even if you think you may have given it to us already, as no student will be registered for their Sacraments if we do not have one on record.  No exceptions will be made.  We will not keep your original, however, we will keep all copies given.

Please remember: If you are registering someone else’s student(s) for CM Classes (i.e., niece, nephew, grandchild, friend), you MUST have written permission from the parent along with a COMPLETED Emergency Form/Family Agreement Form for each student.  In this particular case, no student will be registered without permission or completed forms. [For your convenience, you may print the form from our Website, . Please scroll down to CM handbook and open it.  The “Emergency Form” and “Family Agreement Form” are near the end of the handbook.  Print as many as needed for the amount of students you have. ]

A NOTE TO ALL REGISTERING FAMILIES: All emergency forms MUST be complete, as this is now considered a “Diocesan” registration form.  Please do NOT leave any blanks.  Bring all your information (doctor numbers, dentist numbers, current emergency contact info) with you.


PLEASE NOTE: The new U.n.I. Lord (teens and young adults) email address is: .

THANK YOU to the parishioners who donated furniture items for the families in need. 

YOUR HELP IS REQUESTED. Marie Yeap, a high school student and alumni from St. Victor’s, will participate this summer in a weeklong immersion experience here in San Jose.  She is asking for donations of bags of rice and beans and school backpacks (new or gently used) and supplies, which will be distributed by Catholic Charities to newly arrived immigrants.  The donations of rice and beans may be dropped off in the box in the vestibule labeled, Help Marie Donate Rice and Beans.  School backpacks and supplies may be taken to the Rectory Office.


Juan Diego Society representatives will be speaking to us for a few minutes at each Mass next weekend, July 11th & 12th.  They will also have materials regarding their services and needs available for you to take home after Mass.  Feel free to stop by and ask any questions that may have.


PRAYER FOR JUSTICE AND PEACE. Lord, our God, when we call to You, You always answer. We place our hopes and fears in You, knowing that You are always present, we are not afraid. Protect us from the hatred of others, and keep us safe from the weapons of terrorism. Do not allow us to be misled by fear. You desire justice for everyone; enable us to uphold the rights of all. Give us wisdom to know Your will and make it our own. Hear our prayers for our men and women in the armed forces, our leaders and our allies. Guide them with the Spirit of hope and justice as they strive for enduring freedom. Enfold them and their loved ones in Your gentle care. Help all of us, even in small ways, to work for justice that will bring true harmony and peace. Amen.
