Parish Prayer for the Week of April 21

O God, who on this day, through your Only Begotten Son, have conquered death and unlocked for us the path to eternity, grant, we pray, that we who keep the solemnity of the Lord's Resurrection may, through the renewal brought by your Spirit, rise up in the light of life.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Family Referral Program

Our current Immaculate Conception School and Parish Community are by far the best ambassadors for spreading the word about our parish school!  Our new Family Referral Program is outlined HERE.  Refer a second family and the rewards increase.

Revelation and the Rapture

The Easter season is a time for “mystagogy”—recognizing the mysteries—of our faith.  Here is a simple way for you to engage in mystagogy this year.  In lectionary cycle C, the second Sunday reading during the Easter season is taken from the Book of Revelation.  Below is a six-week reading guide for the Book of Revelation.  If you start the week of Easter, your reading will take you right up to Pentecost.  

Then, plan to attend Revelation and the Rapture: A Catholic Response.  Father Monty is offering this two-part adult faith formation series on two Thursdays in May.  The session on May 9 will focus on the Book of Revelation.  On May 16 we will finish our study and talk about the so called “Rapture”.  It will be a lively discussion, I assure you! 

 Book of Revelation Reading Guide 

Week Read Ponder
1 1:1 - 4:11 Which qualities of 2:19 apply to you this week?
2 5:1 - 8:5 How do you sense God's protection in your life?
3 8:6 - 11:19 How is God's word sweet and sour to you?
4 12:1 - 15:8 Do you think the end of the world is near?
5 16:1 - 19:10 What wisdom do you need?
6 19:11 - 22:21 What is the most important lesson you learned from reading the Book of Revelation?

Adult Confirmation Formation

Adult Confirmation Formation is available to anyone who has received the sacraments of Baptism and Eucharist and is interested in receiving the sacrament of Confirmation in the Catholic faith.  Six formation sessions provide an overview of the Catholic faith. Participation in Confirmation formation sessions is required to receive the sacrament of Confirmation. For more information complete the form HERE.

ARE YOU A REGISTERED MEMBER OF THE PARISH?

You may come to Mass every Sunday, but are you a registered member of Immaculate Conception Church?  At I.C., membership includes active participation in the sacramental life of the church, involvement in the activities of the faith community and financial support of the parish. 

An adult child of a registered parishioner, after graduation from college, during their military service, or after moving out of town, is no longer a member of this parish.  In order to schedule a wedding or baptism at Immaculate Conception—or to obtain permission to be a godparent or Confirmation sponsor—you must be registered in a parish.  To schedule an appointment for registration or for more information call the parish office.  

 

Are you or someone you know interested in becoming Catholic?
We offer an opportunity to come together in a small group setting to learn more about the Catholic faith.  Sessions focus on the teachings and tradition of the Church, and prepare individuals to celebrate the Sacraments of Initiation--Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist. You are welcome to participate in this process with your questions, insight, and faith story. Please contact Linda Summerville by phone
at 814-226-5864, or email linda.summerville62@gmail.com.
