SOCIETY OF ST. VINCENT DE PAUL
Members of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul (or Vincentians) are men and women who strive to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to individuals in need. We are young and old. Our members come in every shade of skin color. Some of us are wealthy, some are financially poor, but all of us are blessed with an awareness that our blessings (time, talent, or treasure) are to be shared with our brothers and sisters in need. The OLV Society of St. Vincent de Paul co-sponsors the food pantry located at St. John's Lutheran Church on 4939 W. Montrose Ave in Chicago.
KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS
Founded on the principles of charity, unity and fraternity, the Knights of Columbus was established in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary's Church in New Haven, Conn., and a group of parishioners. Their intent? To bring financial aid and assistance to the sick, disabled and needy members and their families.
Today, Father McGivney is being considered for sainthood.

Our Lady of Victory SPRED Group Special Religious Development
The goal of SPRED is to help children and adults with disabilities develop an awareness of God in their lives; an awareness of themselves as persons of dignity who are loved by God; and an awareness of themselves as an integral part of the parish community and the entire Church. This is accomplished through meaningful relationships within a small community of faith.
We meet as Catechists for 12 prep sessions and as a total group for 12 sessions from September through May.
For more information please contact the rectory and leave a message for Linda Christian.
Our Sharing Parish outreach links Our Lady of Victory to other parishes in the Archdiocese of Chicago, to remind us that we are part of a universal church. We benefit from each other by sharing spiritual, community and financial resources. On the first weekend of each month, Our Lady of Victory collects non-perishable food items for our sharing parishes of St. Agatha and Santa Maria Addolorata. Parishoners also have the opportunity participate in St. Agatha's Adopt-A-Family gift program each Advent and provide other financial means of support. Contact Deacon Mike Ahern via the parish office with any questions.
