100TH ANNIVERSARY OF FATIMA
In 1916 an Angel, whom later identified himself as the Angel of Peace appeared to three shepherd children. Lucia Santos, and her two cousins Francisco and Jacinta Marto. The Angel was preparing them for visits from Our Lady herself the following year. From May 13, 1917 to October 13, 1917 the Our Lady of Fatima appeared each month on the 13th. She warned humanity to cease offending God. She gave prophetic messages to the children, which are extremely relevant today.
Pope Francis has granted a plenary indulgence opportunity for the 100th anniversary of the Our Lady of Fatima apparitions throughout the centennial year, from the 27th of November 2016 till the 26th of November 2017. For the indulgence: Pray before any statue of Our Lady of Fatima. The faithful, with devotion, can visit a statue of Our Lady of Fatima solemnly exposed for public veneration in any church, oratory or proper place of prayer during the days of the anniversary of the apparitions, the 13th of each month from May to October 2017, and there devoutly participate in some celebration or prayer in honor of the Virgin Mary. In addition, the faithful must pray the Our Father, recite the Creed and invoke Our Lady of Fatima. To obtain the plenary indulgence, the faithful must also fulfill the ordinary conditions:
go to Confession and Communion
be interiorly detached from sin
pray for the intentions of the Holy Father
The first Rosary will be prayed this Saturday, May 13th, after the 8 am Mass at the OLV Chapel. It will be prayed in Spanish at 6:30 pm at the OLV Church on May 13th.
NEW CALENDAR FOR OUR MASS SUMMER SCHEDULE
The Summer Mass Schedule for Our Lady of Victory and St. Peter the Fisherman will begin on Memorial Day weekend (May 27/28) and continue through the last weekend of September (Sept. 30/Oct. 1). The Mass times will remain the same for the Summer Schedule. At that time there will be the added 8AM Mass on Sundays at Our Lady of Victory. At St. Peter the Fisherman there will be added the Saturday Vigil Mass at 5:30PM, and the Sunday morning Mass will move from 9:00AM to 9:30AM.

INTERESTED IN LEARNING MORE ABOUT THE CATHOLIC FAITH?
Although RCIA refers to the process of becoming Catholic, we would like to invite anyone who is interested in learning about the Catholic Faith. There is no commitment to become a Catholic. If you or someone you know is interested, please contact Joseph Salazar at the OLV parish office.
NEW CHURCH OFFICE HOURS
The OLV Parish Office will now be open from 9 am - noon on Mondays (from 1-4 pm the Parish Office will be closed). The other weekdays remain 9am-4pm.
RELIGIOUS EDUCATION COORDINATOR PLEDGE
We were blessed to have started our Religious Education ministry with an experienced and dedicated individual. This position has grown to now include the responsibilities of bulletin editor, Liturgy Committee chairman, Adult Education classes, RCIA, as well as assist in marriage preparation. We committed to this ministry initially for at least 5 years. The first fiscal quarter revenues for the Educational Coordinator, however, fell short of our budgeted goal. To ensure that we meet our commitment, please fill out the pledge card dedicated to the Family Religious Education Program which is available in the pews and can also be printed out here: pledge card available here and return it to the parish office or donate online by entering an amount in the "Religious Coordinator Fund" box here: Donate Online. We need everyone's commitment to fund this essential part of our parish's Spiritual life.

Beginning next week, we are asking that all requests to have something added to the bulletin please be turned in to the parish office by the Monday prior to when that bulletin is distributed. The best way to get us the information is to email our bulletin editor, Joseph Salazar, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
THANK YOU TO OUR ADVERTISERS

A FUN AND EASY WAY TO SERVE THE CHURCH
We really need hosting families/individuals to set up and clean up our coffee and doughnuts after 11am Mass. It is NOT difficult or time consuming and we will train and give easy directions! Please call the parish office at 503-738-6161
WHY THE STEWARDSHIP PLEDGE IS SO IMPORTANT
Consider the following example. Your employer tells you that he is going to pay you, but he doesn?t tell you how much. So you work each week and at the end of the week he hands you a pay check. There was no way you could budget for your family needs. Well, that is how a parish operates when it doesn't know what it might receive from week to week. By making an annual Stewardship pledge, it enables the parish to have a better idea of the expected revenues for the coming year. Without a pledge, we only guess!
LOOKING FOR ADULTS TO SERVE AS SACRISTANS
LOOKING FOR ADULTS TO SERVE AS SACRISTANS, EUCHARISTIC MINISTERS, LECTORS AND ALTAR SERVERS. PLEASE CONTACT THE PARISH OFFICE 503-738-6161 OR CHRIS ROSE 503-738-3221
