Anyone wishing to meet with Father Arun at the church in Thorsby with questions regarding their faith and or counselling regarding life matters may do so by phoning the Devon Office and setting up an appointment.
Sacraments for Children – If anyone wishes to have their child/children receive either their First Holy Communion or Confirmation, please contact Father Arun
Pre-Authorize Your Donation – Pre-authorized donations can be set up by contacting Roger in the parish office, providing her with a voided cheque and donation instructions.
Portable Defibrillator – A portable defibrillator has been donated by the Warburg Legion for use in our parish should a medical situation necessitate its use. It is located on the south wall of the Community Outreach Facility (Parish Hall), next to the family washroom. Instructions are included with the device and everyone using the church or hall should familiarize themselves with its whereabouts.
Parish Pastoral Council is Seeking New Members – The PPC is currently seeking two new members to volunteer to join the Council and we are hopeful that the minimal time commitment will encourage new faces forward. If you are interested in joining the PPC, please contact Guy Giroux or Ernest Jablonski.
Parish Lending Library – We have purchased some more books for our lending library, compliments of Sister Ada Toner. They will be on display at the back of the church in the near future. Please feel free to borrow anything of interest to you for your reading enjoyment. A sign out sheet can be found next to the book display. Additionally, the Thorsby Municipal Library has a number of faith-based books available.
Parish Housekeeping – Please consider giving a little bit of your time to help keep Our Lady of Victory clean. A sign up schedule for church cleaning can be found at the back of the church. Thanks in advance for your involvement in this service to our parish.
Sunday Hospitality – Every Sunday after mass, attendees are invited to join us for coffee and treats in our Parish Hall (located directly south of the church). Please consider taking a turn to host our Sunday hospitality after mass. Sign up your family or team up with another in our community. A schedule can be found at the back of the church.
