Food for Thought
  • For all the austerity in his life, John spoke to people in words they could grasp. It was his austerity that drew people’s respect and trust. Here was a man who cared nothing for comfort, money or fame, who could not be bought, and who could speak the truth without fear.


  • What is my reaction? Where does this lead 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.

PENETENTIAL SERVICE WITH INDIVIDUAL CONFESSIONS
- to be held on December 15th at 7:00 p.m. at Our Lady of Victory Church for both OLV and St. Malachys. Father Yves Masse and Father Gyan will both be hearing confessions.

SUNDAY MISSALS
The Sunday Missals for 2010 are available at the church entrance. The cost is $6:00 each, and there will be a basket for your donation. There are also Children’s Sunday Missals. They are also $6:00

FINANCIAL STATEMENT UPDATE
Enclosed in this week`s bulletin is our most recent financial statement. The statement is self explanatory and as you can see we are still in a deficit position. There is one more major expenditure to come and that is the new roof on the garage. This project is completed and the cost should be about $ 8,200.00. This cost we believe can be offset by the Society`s recent fund raising activities, our Christmas concert and reimbursements from St. Malachy’s for a portion of Father Gyan`s salary and other administrative costs, plus $2,500 from Norm Mac Millan, which we will receive early next year. If you have any questions regarding the statement, Bill Cameron will be available after mass next week to address any questions you may have.

SUNDAY ENVELOPES
Your 2010 Sunday envelopes are available to be picked up. They are at the top of the stairs. If you are not presently envelope holders and would like to begin, you may take a blank box from the table or call the office (819)986-3763. Please be sure to write your name on the first envelope, as this is the only record for Income Tax purposes. Receipts are sent out by end of February.

OLV WARDENS
The next OLV wardens meeting will be on December 17th at 7:00 p.m.

OLV SOCIETY
The Society would like to thank all who helped in making our Christmas tea a success. All your efforts helped us raise $1524:30. Our new adventure of making meat pies also became a success story. A total of 150 large meat pies and 45 small meat pies were sold and a profit of $736.03 was made. These two events raised $2260.33 which, as stated in an earlier bulletin, will be given to the Wardens to help with the expenses for our office and place of worship. When we come together and have fun spending a bit for some goodies, it is amazing how fast the amount grows.

Thank you to all for your participation and encouragement. Also as the holidays approach, we wish you and your family the joy of the season and may you share the warmth and love with all that you encounter over this time.

A SPECIAL MESSAGE TO OUR PHONE CHAIN MEMBERS FOR THE TEAS
Would you please contact Clare (986-2853) Evelyn (986-2477) or Monique (986-3166) if you had difficulty contacting anyone for the Christmas Tea. (Maybe a phone number has changed or you may have some corrections that must be made). Please advise us so that this can be corrected before our 2010 St. Pat’s Tea. Thanks, Clare, Evelyn, Monique (the Society)



The Lions Club Annual Telethon held last Sunday, December 6th at the Knights of Columbus Hall was once again a success. The goal set by the Lions Club was exceeded.

Members of the Transformation Committee presented the Lions Club with a total of $740.00 which was collected from our two parishes. The Lions Club wishes to thank all parishioners of Our Lady of Victory and St. Malachy who participated in the telethon, either by including donations with the regular collections, dropping by the Knights of Columbus hall and making a donation or by calling in their donation during the telethon. The Transformation Committee members also thank our generous parishioners.
