VICTORY NOLL SISTERS
Rooted in our charism, we proclaim the Gospel in solidarity with all persons, especially those living in poverty and oppression. We commit ourselves to ongoing prayer, study and action on behalf of human rights, justice and peace.
WELCOME TO VICTORY NOLL
From their founding in 1922 by Father John Joseph Sigstein, Our Lady of Victory Missionary Sisters have been dedicated to living the mission of Jesus.
Our Lady of Victory Missionary Sisters, commonly known as Victory Noll Sisters, are a Pontifical Congregation founded in 1922 by Father John J. Sigstein. Called by the Spirit to a missionary life, the Sisters live the vision of their founder who placed them under the patronage of Our Lady of Victory. They proclaim the gospel in creative and flexible ways in order to promote the reign of God in justice and peace.
As the OLVM Sisters age and the congregation grows smaller, their main ministry has become one of prayer and presence, with a focus on and support for those places, issues and concerns that have always been at the heart of our mission. They continue to follow the words of Father Sigstein, who said, “Always go to the poor first.”
The world is constantly changing and with those changes comes a call for transformation, adaptation and conversion. News happens when these changes occur, whether it is from within the congregation or our response to what is happening outside the congregation.
When one of our sisters moves from this world to enjoy the fullness of God’s glory, we celebrate her life, her ministry and her presence among us as a member of Our Lady of Victory Missionary Sisters.
Follow the happenings of Our Lady of Victory Missionary Sisters both at Victory Noll and elsewhere as their ministries reach out to those in need.
VISIT THE ARCHIVES
This is the online Archives of Our Lady of Victory Missionary Sisters, or commonly known as the Victory Noll Sisters. In their past they published a mission journal, THE MISSIONARY CATECHIST. This journal is available in the Victory Noll Archives, and also online. We have also posted postcard views of the Motherhouse in Huntington, Indiana, and of the Queen of Missions located in Redlands, California, and other scenes from our early history. The Archives holds material from the beginning of the Society of Missionary Catechists, 1922 to the present day.
