Retirement Plans – Use ‘Em Or Lose ‘Em

Did you know that retirement plan assets are part of your estate?  They also have never been taxed as income.  The IRS loves these plans, because they can get two bites instead of one! This can reduce their value to your heirs by up to 70%.

If you want to know more about this, the Diocese can provide free assistance.  Call Robert Serventi @ 983-0168, or write to him at: Diocese of San Jose, The Chancery, 1150 N. First Street, Suite 100, San Jose, CA 95112-4966.

Fiesta Entertainment – Are you a talented individual or group who would like to be included in this year’s entertainment at St. Victor’s FIESTA?  If so, please call the Parish Office @ 251-7055.  Also, if you know a professional entertainment group, who would be interested in donating their talent to this year’s FIESTA, please call.

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: .
