UPCOMING EVENTS


PURIFIED TICKETS will be on sale in the back of the church after all Sunday masses, or can be purchased online: PURIFIED - $20/ticket is a bargain for this great talk and free resources! Bring a friend! We hope to see you there!

As a parent, have you ever wondered how to protect your family from everything in society that seems to undermine their innocence? If you're a teen or young adult, have you ever wondered about the difference between love and lust, and how to find true love in a world that only seems to offer the counterfeit? Then don't miss PURIFIED! These questions will be answered on Feb. 5th from 6-8pm at Our Lady of Victory Church in State College, PA by world renown chastity speaker: Jason Evert. Get straight answers to tough questions about God's plan for human love. Don't wait! Tickets are selling fast!

Purified Flyer_State Collge, PA revised.pdf

Purified brings parents and teens (13+) together to discover God’s plan for love and opens up an opportunity for them to continue the discussion about this important topic at home, in a healthy and easy way with resources that work. The event includes a new version of Jason’s renowned talk Love or Lust, where he mixes humor with down-to-earth practicality that removes any awkwardness, making the difficult conversations about love much easier. Your family will leave with an understanding of the good news of chastity, a healthy sense of self-worth, and the ability, if needed, to start again.


This event includes Eucharistic Adoration and praise and worship,. This format transforms a couple of talks into a retreat for the family, allowing them to encounter the source of purity, healing, and renewal, Jesus Christ.

Parents of OLV Parish Confirmation Track Students, grades 9-11: 1/2 price tickets are available before and after Sunday masses while they last. These half price tickets are not available online.
