General Intention -- Formation in Spiritual Discernment.  That the Church may appreciate the urgency of formation in spiritual discernment, both on the personal and communitarian levels.

Parish Prayer for the week of March 18
By your help, we beseech you, Lord our God, may we walk eagerly in that same charity with which, out of love for the world, your Son handed himself over to death

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
ne God, for ever and ever.  Amen.

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.
