Memorial Walkway: This week’s bulletin cover features the new Memorial Walkway to our Blessed Mother’s statue between the School and Preschool. Be sure to see it for yourself when you have some time. All those who gave at least $100.00 to the Capital Campaign are remembered there. And there is room for more people to be remembered. If you would like to donate a brick paver or a limestone paver, please contact Chris Kirkpatrick at 237-7832, ext. 204.


Thank you, thank you, thank you! I thank, on behalf of our parish, Mary Hershey and her committee for sponsoring our annual parish picnic last Sunday. I also thank the Knights of Columbus for allowing us to use their facilities rent-free.


Annual Parish Novena: Our annual parish Novena to Our Lady of Victory opens on Saturday, Sept. 29th and closes on Sunday, Oct. 7th. The theme this year’s “Entering the Year of Faith.” The traditional format will be observed. More detailed information will appear in the following week’s bulletin.


Sign-up for “Catholicism” Discussion Groups: Next weekend or the following weekend we invite you to sign-up in the Gathering Space for the “Catholicism” discussion group of your choice. When you sign up, you will receive the Participant’s Study Guide. We ask a $20 donation at this time to help pay for the material.


Secretarial Position Opening: Our parish secretary for the last 16+ years, Joyce Hughey, will retire this October. Congratulations, Joyce! Your smiling face in the office will be greatly missed. But if anyone deserves some rest, it is you, after all you’ve done for OLV.

Now comes the difficult part - finding a new secretary. We are accepting applications starting now. This is a full-time, paid position with benefits. Hours are Monday through Friday, from 8:30am to 4:30pm. Applicant must be able to keep confidences! Patience, a pleasant personality and the ability to multi-task are also essential, as well as facility in using a PC for emails, word processing, etc.

Interested parties should submit a typed resume with references to the office to the attention of Msgr. David Lockard. If you have questions, contact Joyce or Monsignor by phone or email.


Annual Parish Bazaar: The annual OLV Parish Bazaar is scheduled for Saturday, November 10th. We will have ethnic food, crafts, baked goods, theme baskets, raffle tickets, silent auction, children’s games, “tailgate” for the PSU/Nebraska game and live entertainment. Please contact Chris Kirkpatrick at [email protected],com or 237-7832, ext. 204 if you would like to help in any way.
