The Catholic Cancer Support Group

 

"Many of the miracles with Jesus Christ happened at his amazement of the extraordinary faith in ordinary people. The
Catholic Cancer Support Group Our Lady of Victory is a meeting place for all those who still believe miracles happen.”

Father Mark Hession, Former Pastor
Our Lady of Victory Parish

We are a faith-based support group. All are welcome - patients, survivors, caregivers, family, friends.
Each session will start with celebration of Mass and the anointing the sick. Following Mass there will short presentation with an opportunity to ask questions, have a cup of coffee and chat with other members.

Meetings are held on the first Monday of the Month, beginning with Mass at 6 p.m., at the Parish Center of Our Lady of Victory. To be added to the email list, please send an email to cancersupport@olvparish.org


“As a lifelong Catholic, I never dreamed that the compassionate care of people with cancer would claim my heart. At
73 I am still learning my faith is the victory and our hope.”

Joseph Gill, Former Chair, The Catholic Cancer Support Group at Our Lady of Victory

    “The purpose of any cancer support group is to help people with the diagnosis of cancer deal with the disease with purpose, courage, and hope. Everyone is entitled to hope: for a cure, to live until a specific event happens, to go on living with the disease, to enjoy life, for a peaceful death. How do patients and their families find the strength to deal
    with the diagnosis? They rely on others for help and guidance and they gather strength to do this from others who have been on the same journey. How does this particular faith-based cancer support group differ from other support groups? It is sacramental and provides grace and spiritual blessing to help the cancer patient cope with the diagnosis of cancer.”

    Dr. W. J. Connolly, Former Chief of Staff, Cape Cod Hospital
