Our Lady of Victories

1 Fairfield Road Market Harborough Leicestershire LE16 9QQ 01858 462359

Our Lady of Victories endeavours where possible to maintain an open door policy for the Church and whilst like most Churches we have recognised Service times we also welcome worshippers to come in their own time for personal prayer and thought.

 

OUR PARISH MISSION STATEMENT:

 

We, the faith community of Our Lady of Victories Parish, with our values rooted in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, accept our mission:

 

to come together to worship God,

to welcome everybody,

to work with and in our local community as Christians in the Catholic tradition,

in openness and fellowship with Christians in Churches Together in Market Harborough,

to love, learn from, and support each other, in our spiritual growth,

to witness to our faith in words, actions and compassionate service to others.
