Parish Prayer for the Week of August 11
Almighty ever-living God, who, taught by the Holy Spirit, we dare to call our Father, bring, we pray, to perfection in our hearts the spirit of adoption as your sons and daughters, that we may merit to enter into the inheritance which you have planned.
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.

Anniversary Celebrations

Couples celebrating 25, 50, 60 or 60+ years of marriage in 2019 are invited to attend the Annual Diocesan Anniversary Celebrations this summer.  Bishop Persico will preside at both liturgies. During the liturgy, couples will receive an anniversary blessing and receive a scroll signed by the bishop. A light reception in the parish social hall will follow.
This year, the Anniversary Celebrations will be held at two locations in the Erie Diocese:

  • Aug. 4 at 2 p.m., St. Catherine of Siena Parish, DuBois
  • Aug. 25 at 2 p.m., Sacred Heart Parish, Erie.

A few weeks before the celebrations, wedding anniversary couples will receive a letter explaining all of the details for the day. 
Couples may complete a registration form online at https://www.ErieRCD.org/familylifeoffice/anniv.html. Although the online method is preferred, you may print a hard copy of the registration form, which is available HERE.  If not completed online, completed registration forms may be mailed to
Family Life Office
429 E. Grandview Blvd.
Erie, PA  16504
or faxed to 814-824-1264 (call before faxing). For questions, call or email the Family Life Office at 814-824-1261 or [email protected].

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 [email protected].
