victorious hearts - couples ministry

In our ongoing commitment to support engaged and married couples at OLV, we're excited to announce our very first Meet-and-Greet event, taking place on Saturday, December 9, at 5:30 p.m. in the lower level of the Basilica.

We are eager to welcome both new couples and those who have lovingly been a part of our OLV Family for years.

What to anticipate:

  • 5:30 p.m.: Sip, eat, & mingle! We'll be serving a light charcuterie, along with wine and coffee generously provided by the Catholic Coffee Company.
  • 6 p.m.: Rev. Msgr. David G. LiPuma will share a brief message.
  • 6:15 p.m.: Enjoy a captivating piano performance by Richie English, co-host of WNED Classical Radio's show "Stratton and Richie Entering Music."

As this is our inaugural event, we're eager to gauge your interest and gather your invaluable feedback on how we can best support you and your spouse on your faith journey. We kindly ask you to spare just 5 minutes of your time to complete this brief survey.  


All are welcome to join us ... no RSVP is necessary. However, we kindly request that you complete the survey linked above to help us shape future ministry events, even if you're unable to attend.

If you have any questions or need further information, please don't hesitate to contact Deacon Mark Bialkowski at [email protected] or Amanda English at [email protected].

Lastly, mark your calendars for February 10, which is tentatively set as the date for our next meet-up in celebration of World Marriage Day. Stay tuned for more details!
