Reading I Isaiah 22.15, 19 - 23 Responsorial Psalm Lord, your love is eternal, do not forsake the work of your hands.
Reading II Romans 11. 33 - 36 Gospel Matthew 16 13 – 20
Food for Thought
  • ‘’Am I open to Jesus’ question ‘’Who do you say that I am?’ This text has been used so often for apologetic purposes that it is hard to recapture the drama, the uncertain silence, that must have followed Jesus’ question.
  • He wondered what they would say, and wonders what I say to the same question. Peter confirmed Jesus’ growing sense of his vocation and role.
  • Lord, I linger with this question: what are you to me?

ARE YOU NEW TO OUR PARISH? WELCOME!
Welcome to those who want to make our parish their faith home. You may have come from other places. You may have been “away for a while”. Be assured that we love to have you among us. We would appreciate it very much if you identified yourself at Mass. It would also help if you would take the time to fill out a registration form. The next time you are with us, you may leave it in the collection basket or give it to one of the ushers or to the priest. Thank you and welcome.

BAPTISM
Baptism in Jesus’ name, makes us united with Jesus Christ, which includes becoming members of Christ’s Body, the Church, or a member of God’s holy people. That is not a vaguely spiritual matter, but a concrete one of membership in an actual real parish community and of being active in its life. To-day during the Eucharistic Celebration at our Lady of Victory, we will also be celebrating a Baptism. As we join the parents to celebrate with them the Baptism of their child, please welcome him into our Faith Community:

Matthew Peter Schmidt, son of Alexander Schmidt and Stephanie Blais
