As Baptized Catholics, we each share in a responsibility to assist in our Parish.  Here at Our Lady of Victory, a number of ministries are
 available:  If interested in any of these, please contact the Parish Office at (814) 237-7832 or at [email protected]

We also have a Ministry booklet that lists all the ministries in which you can be involved. Go to 'Joining Our Parish' and you can find the booklet there.

Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist: 

Eucharistic Ministers help to share the body and blood of Christ through distribution of the Sacrament of Holy Communion. This could 

include two general categories:

            • Functioning at Communion during mass;
            • Taking Communion to the sick or shut-ins (at home or in the hospital)
Eucharistic Ministers must be fully initiated Catholics in good standing to participate.

Lectors proclaim the word of God at Mass, they must speak clearly and confidently.  Fully initiated Catholics in good standing as well as high school students currently in the confirmation program are welcome.

Altar Server:
Servers assist the priest at mass.  Young people in grades 4th and up are welcome to assist as Altar Servers.

At every weekend mass, our greeters welcome those to mass and let them know that they are welcome

Sacristans are those who assist in preparing the vessels for mass, help with decorations and other preparations necessary to celebrate the sacred liturgy.
