"This video will capture the essence of Our Lady of Victory Parish in its families and students, sacred and social celebrations, and the entire parish joined together in ministry groups guided by more than a century of its priests, sisters, teachers and leaders.
The video will help us realize we take all those memories, all those friendships with us as we continue our prayerful journey in Our Lady's love."

– Fr. Michael O'Connell
