LAST DAY OF THE 2013-2014 SCHOOL YEAR

Many of you know that our pastor, Fr. Dave announced at Masses a couple of weekends ago that he is being reassigned by Cardinal Wuerl. We are so sad to see Fr. Dave leave OLV, but we must also keep in mind that archdiocesan priests are not ordained to serve a specific parish, but for the diocese, and after a short, well deserved sabbatical, the archbishop will give Fr. Dave a new position. On Sunday, June 15 following the 10:30 a.m. Mass, we will have an opportunity to show our gratitude to Fr. Dave for his six years of service to Our Lady of Victory. Please join us for that Mass and also for the celebratory brunch in Hess Auditorium. Everyone is invited to attend!
In the coming weeks, we will welcome Fr. David Fitz-Patrick as the new Administrator of Our Lady of Victory. Fr. Fitz-Patrick has just retired from the Air Force after twenty-four years as an Air Force Chaplain. He attended seminary in Rome and was ordained in 1979 for the Diocese of Fairbanks (Alaska) and was incardinated into the Archdiocese of Washington in 1990 by Cardinal Hickey. The Our Lady of Victory community will have a chance to meet Fr. Fitz-Patrick during hospitality on Sunday, July 13 following the 10:30 a.m. Mass. Please welcome Fr. Fitz-Patrick and introduce yourselves when you see him around the parish and school grounds as he settles in this summer. As you know, June is ordination time, and as we continue to pray for all our priests, we remember Fr. Dave Werning and Fr. David Fitz-Patrick in a very special way. We are so thankful for their service to the archdiocese.

Thanks,
Sheila
