Welcome! We at Our Lady of Victory and St. John Vianney parishes invite you to our webpage to see what we have to offer. Thank you for coming!
We minister to the people of West Haven, offering the love of Jesus Christ to all. We are happy to have our life-long parishioners continue serving the Lord in all they do. We are glad to welcome new residents and make them feel at home among us in this house of God. Our sacramental life is the core of all we do. All here strive to promote prayerful, beautiful liturgies to uplift the mind, heart and soul. We encourage full and active participation in the sacramental life of the Church, even bringing services to our homebound members. We are committed to the education of children and adults through our school, religious education, RCIA, Bible study, and adult education programs. We strongly believe that social justice is a primary responsibility of all the faithful. We try to meet the needs of our brothers and sisters through outreach at the Beacon on the Hill (with a clothes closet, food pantry, diaper bank, durable medical goods, and other emergency assistance). We work to promote the family of God by providing social gatherings and events throughout the year, such as our carnivals, picnics, and social club.
No matter where you are on your journey with God, we want you to feel welcome here. Whether you are a cradle Catholic or a convert, you are a daily Masser or someone who has been away from the Church for years, all are welcome! You will find a diverse community of believers here ready to greet you and help in any way we might be able. Why don't you help us live the life of Christ!
Stop in to visit. Listen to our amazing choir. Join us for coffee. Sit in on a Bible study. Stay for a quiet moment of prayer. Come back home at the carnivals. Know that you are welcome here.
"Let us then pursue what leads to peace and to build up one another (Romans 14:19)."
