Social justice issues have been part of the mission of Our Lady of Victory Missionary Sisters since their founding. The way they work, pray and use their abundant resources are rooted in their charism to proclaim the Gospel in solidarity with all persons.
The OLVM Charism calls on Sisters to serve in solidarity with God’s people, especially those marginalized by society. They show compassion by working for justice and acting with simplicity and adaptablility, and in the way they collaborate with others.
The purpose of the Empowerment Grants is to utilize our resources, so as to effectively address the Victory Noll Sisters’ concern for those who live in poverty and are marginalized by society. We, as Victory Noll Sisters are committed to a corporate public way to promote and sustain the mission of God according to the charism of Our Lady of Victory Missionary Sisters in solidarity with all persons, especially those living in poverty and/or oppression.
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.
Our Lady of Victory Missionary Sisters began the celebration of their 100th anniversary in August of 2021. The community of women religious, also known as the Victory Noll Sisters, were established in Chicago by Father John Joseph Sigstein. He sent the first two Sisters, Marie Benes and Julia Doyle, on their initial mission assignment to Santa Fe, N.M. They arrived there on August 5, 1922, establishing the traditional date for the inception of the congregation.
