Our daughter is now in fourth grade and has been at OLV since Kindergarten. She joined many clubs including the school choir, and then soon following that she volunteered to be an altar server. Very recently a cheerleading game conflicted with her altar server schedule, and she said to us I have to go to church to serve. If I don t it s like denying God. That s when we knew our little girl was now a young lady with a true love of God and her school. OLV continues to amaze us on their abilities as a school and parish to mold are daughter into a humble, caring young lady. Each year new exciting things have started at OLV reaffirming the best decision we ever made. Under the guidance of Mrs. Hodge; OLV boasts and incredible STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) curriculum that includes an IPAD lab, smart boards and IPADS in every classroom, an innovation lab and after school programs to meet each individual student need or wants. Enrollment continues to grow as we have double our enrollment in the last 18 months becuase great things are happening at OLV. In 2014 we are privledged to sent our son here for Pre-k3.

Truly a horrid, hideous bad place. Bad people, very bad memories. Do your kids a favor, keep them out of OLV. Homeschool them if you have to. - OLV Alumni

As the saying goes, "In order to HAVE a friend, you must BE a friend." OLV, as in many parishes, has its insiders and outsiders. As a single woman, in my early years at OLV, I did feel outside. However, over time, I became friendly with many of the parishioners, and found that not everyone was married with children (a status which makes singles feel a bit outside), and found too, that there were many loving supportive friends to be found.
So, my answer is, in order to be a find a good parish, we sometimes must be willing to reach out for help or to help.

Our Lady of Victory is a Marian devoted parish. A blue collar parish and has been for over 100 years. A beautiful church and caring parishioners.
The only school in the Cluster that has an increasing enrollment and expanding curriculum. Stop in the Rectory to preview the forty-plus ministries, (clubs and gatherings ) sponsored in the parish, for the parish and by the parish.

There is no denying that Our Lady of Victory [OLV to locals] is as beautiful Catholic church, celebrating its centennial in 2005. The stained glass is gorgeous and the woodwork in both the main church and the basement chapel is lovely, with beautiful statues and a remarkable marble baptismal font. The outside front steps are nice and pretty for wedding photos, and there is a small grove attached with a statue of Mary. Overall, it is a gorgeous church. As far as congregation goes, OLV hosts the familes of two Chicago alderman and many of the area's wealthier residents, which leaves some of the wholesome community feeling in the dust. Generally, if you are looking for a one-time event - baptism, wedding, etc - OLV is a prime location, but if you are looking to join a congregation? Keep looking.

PROS: Gorgeous building
CONS:
