This Mass is offered during the first week of school. It is a Mass to which all members of Our Lady of Victory community are invited. It is designed to set the tone for the coming academic year by acknowledging our need for God’s assistance in all that we do.
Our children participate in an annual Christmas Program. This is a wonderful opportunity for all of the OLV community to gather in the spirit of the season and give praise, through word and song, to the Savior.
School students combine with parish students from other educational settings to participate in many aspects of the children’s liturgy.
Each year we hold an event that is the major fund-raising event of the year.
The students are divided into two teams, blue or white, when they enter OLV. These teams compete at our annual Field Day event, and the colors are sometimes used for other school spirit activities during the academic year.
This is the culmination of the school year for the athletic program. The students compete for blue and white points in field day activities, resulting in one team’s dominance until the next year.
Middle schools students participate in a dramatic presentation of the Stations of the Cross
This is, perhaps, one of the most compelling of our traditions, as it is the introduction to the first participatory sacraments for our younger children. First Communion is followed by a reception for the children and their families.
This traditional bestowal of the sacrament takes place every other year. It provides an opportunity to the entire OLV community to reaffirm their commitment to their faith.
In this finale for the school year, the choir, band, art department and 8th grade host an evening for the enjoyment and entertainment of all–school, families, friends and parishioners.
Graduation is held the first Friday in June. It is a time for the school community to gather together in liturgical celebration for our eighth grade students upon completion of the academic curriculum.
An Awards Assembly is held at the end of each quarter to celebrate the achievements of our students. The last day of school finds the entire school community gathered to share their thanks for a year well-ended through celebration of the Eucharist. Kindergarten graduation is held at this Mass, and yearly awards are given to students.
