OUR LADY OF FATIMA DEVOTIONS

Each year, on the 13th of the month from May through October, Our Lady of Victory hosts Devotions to Our Lady of Fatima.
Last year, due to COVID restrictions, we were only able to host the Devotions through a virtual platform on Facebook Live.

We are happy to announce that in addition to the streaming on Facebook, we will open the Church up to public attendance.

As of JULY, reservations are no longer required to attend in person.

Our next Fatima Devotion will be held on Tuesday, July 13th at 7pm.

Masks will be required at all times for those who are not fully vaccinated.
Doors will open 30 minutes prior to start.
Fatima Booklets will be handed out as you enter the door.
You will be required to keep the booklet and bring back it back each time you attend the Devotions.

You may also print out your own copy of the prayers here: https://www.goholv.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/Fatima-Prayer-Packet.pdf

In order to maintain proper protocols, we will not be holding any type of fellowship in the hall after Devotions.

We hope to see you there!

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!

Distribution of Holy Communion from Gate of Heaven Parking Lot

We will still be live-streaming Masses on Sundays at 8am on our Facebook Page.   You are welcome to receive Holy Communion after watching the live stream.

Everyone has the opportunity to receive Holy Communion in the Gate of Heaven parking lot at Noon on Sunday Mornings.  Please note the start time change due to the commencement of Religious Education for the school year.  Do not arrive early, as CCD will be dismissing students at 11:30am.

Please go to the parking area near Spring Street and receive instructions.  Upon directions from the staff, you will leave your car and proceed to the spot where communion is distributed.  Please wear a mask and social distance from people in other cars.

Confessions Every Saturday from 2 - 3:30

The Sacrament of Reconciliation will be held at Gate of Heaven during the odd Months (January , March) and at Our Lady of Victory during the even months (February, April).  Please enter through the Sacristy Door at GOH and the Cry Room Door at OLV.

A Note from the Pastor regarding the Parish Prayer Hour

At our Parish Prayer Hour, we pray for our parishioners and all that we do as a parish.  The Parish is always in need of prayer, but now even more.   Prayer allows us to open ourselves up to God’s action in our lives.   Prayer is a time when we humbly approach our Lord and submit our lives, intentions and plan for his guidance, insights, strength and providence.

The Parish Prayer Hour rotates between Churches (odd months at GOH and even months at OLV) on the second Wednesday of each month at 6pm.  It is open to the public and does not require a reservation.  Please download, print, and bring with you the Prayer Packet below.

Guidelines for Returning to Mass

In preparation for the live stream of the Holy Mass on Sunday

The following prayer is very important to help you enter into the communion part of the Mass…so as to experience a spiritual communion with the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament.

You may pray it when I am receiving the Body and Blood of Christ at the altar, just before I purify the vessels. 

Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus,
I believe that You
are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love you above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace you as if you were already there
and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You.
Amen

After Spiritually receiving the Graces of Holy Communion you may pray the following prayer

Anima Christi

Soul of Christ, sanctify me.
Body of Christ, save me.
Blood of Christ, inebriate me.
Water from the side of Christ, wash me.
Passion of Christ, strengthen me.
O Good Jesus, hear me.
Within your wounds hide me.
Permit me not to be separated from you.
From the wicked foe, defend me.
At the hour of my death, call me
and bid me come to you
That with your saints I may praise you
For ever and ever. Amen.

"May we pray for the wisdom and courage to embrace not merely the story of Jesus’ birth but especially his life, death and resurrection – at the heart of which we discover the surest means of achieving life and lasting peace."
