Confession During Shelter in Place
In order to observe the Shelter in Place order from the County Health Department, we encourage our parishioners to do a Perfect Contrition instead of physically coming for individual confession with our priest. Please read below the links from the Apostolic Penitentiary regarding this directives and also a video from our Bishop. Individual private confessions are however welcomed. Please call parish office to make an appointment at

RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)
We currently have 7 adults in the RCIA process, on the path to becoming fully initiated in the Faith.
On March 1, the Catechumens (unbaptized) participated in the Rite of Election. During this Rite, the Catechumens come before the Church (headed locally by the bishop) as an outward expression of the choice already made by God, to be called by name to the Faith.
The Catechumens are now referred to as the "Elect" and will complete their sacraments of initiation at the Easter Vigil.
Parish Food Pantry
Our newly formed ministry, St. Victor’s Parish Food Pantry, kicked off its opening weekend on Saturday, January 25th. Volunteers of this ministry distributed FREE food and produce to the needy.
There will be a scheduled food distribution every 4th Saturday of the month, held at the back parking lot of the church from
12:00 noon - 2:00 pm. The next distribution will be on February 22nd.
Family Advent Workshop
On the first Sunday of Advent, December 1st,
St Victor Parish held a
Family Advent Workshop.
Families were invited to make an Advent craft to take home and share throughout the season of Advent. Crafts included an Advent wreath, Jesse tree,
O' Antiphons, and Advent saints.
The families concluded their craft time with a special Advent chocolate drink and cookies.
