What happens to our children if the school bus breaks down?

Our Lady of Victory Catholic School is looking for a new set of wheels. The school's bus is 16 years old, has recorded more than 77,000 miles and consistently requires repair, according to the school's website. To contact Our Lady of Victory Catholic School about how to help, call 361-575-5391. The bus is used daily, as well as for events including Youth Ministry retreats, A.C.T.S. retreats and Continuing Catholic Development events. The cost of a new bus is about $95,000.



Fundraising for the bus has been done so far through the OLV Annual Fund Drive and Catholic Life State Raffle, but the school continues to look for support from grants and private donations. The school will also be fundraising at the OLV Spring Gala on March 22nd.
