Thank you for visiting Project Lepanto, the official fundraising site of Our Lady of Victory Catholic Church in Davie and Shrine of St. Philomena in Miami, where the Traditional Latin Mass has been celebrated for over 30 years at both locations. Today, Our Lady of Victory offers Mass every Friday evening, Saturday morning, and three times each Sunday, including a High Sung Mass at 11:00. Confessions and recitation of the Rosary are offered before every Mass.
By the grace of God, we have grown substantially over the past several years. Since merging Our Lady of Victory with the Shrine of St. Philomena earlier this year, many new families have joined our church, where the Mass is celebrated as it has been celebrated, uninterrupted throughout the world, for over 1500 years. Today our little church is very old and in need of many expensive repairs. And even with three Masses on Sunday, we simply are no longer able to handle the number of people attending Mass. It is time to build a new home. Please help us with a generous donation that will help realize our goal of building a new church that will bring glory and honor to God for generations to come. May God bless you for your generosity.
Anyone donating $1,000.00 or more to Operation Lepanto will have their intentions inscribed in the Book of Perpetual Masses celebrated at the Shrine of St. Philomena. These intentions will be remembered at Masses offered on the four principal Feasts of St. Philomena in perpetuity; Her Birthday, January 10th, the Discovery of Her Precious Body, May 25th, the Anniversary of Her Glorious Death and the Moving of Her Relics from Rome to Mugnano del Cardinale, August 10th. Her Principal Feast, August 13th.
REMEMBER, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly to thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother; to thee do I come; before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.
Prayer to Saint Philomena
O FAITHFUL VIRGIN and glorious martyr, St. Philomena, who works so many miracles on behalf of the poor and sorrowing, have pity on me. Thou knowest the multitude and diversity of my needs. Behold me at thy feet, full of misery, but full of hope. I entreat thy charity , O great Saint! Graciously hear me and obtain from God a favorable answer to the request which I now humbly lay before thee; the success of Operation Lepanto. I am firmly convinced that through thy merits, through the scorn, the sufferings and the death thou didst endure, united to the merits of the Passion and death of Jesus, thy Spouse, I shall obtain what I ask of thee, and in the joy of my heart I will bless God, who is admirable in His Saints. Amen.
