An Invitation...

The Our Lady of Victory Adoration Chapel Committee is excited to announce that we have just produced a promotional video to invite area Catholics to the devotion of Eucharistic Adoration.  Because Covid has placed restrictions on mass attendance in many churches, we hope that this brief sampling of testimonies from our Adorers may inspire all who may feel a longing to be with the Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. The OLV Chapel is open to all and is located at St. Mary's Church, 429 E. Allen St., Hudson.  For more information, visit our website at http://OLV.WeAdoreHim.com  or call Rebecca at 518-799-5535.
