Church News and Announcements

Dear Confirmation and School of Religion Families,

 

It is with great joy and bittersweet emotion that I have accepted a great opportunity with the parish’s support and will be parting my position as Coordinator of Religious Education at Immaculate Conception Parish at the end of June. I have been greatly moved by the Holy Spirit as He is sending me on a new and wonderful path in my ministry of teaching the Catholic faith.

I am grateful for the support and friendship you have shared with me. For many of you who I have known over the past five years I will never forget the relationships that have been created with your younger and older children as both a spiritual leader and catechist in past sacramental programs.

The Confirmation program will be handled by Lauren McKeegan, our Youth Minister, (see welcome video from Lauren below). She has a wonderful zeal for our youth of the parish with a great amount to give to our Confirmation program as it continues to flourish through the Holy Spirit. Lauren and I will be transitioning together so do not be surprised this month that we both continue to reach out to you. Also, High School Confirmation Registration has been EXTENDED to July 1.

As for the School of Religion Program, we have begun our search for my replacement. (See position description below and forward to those that might be interested and qualified). Stay tuned to the bulletin and your email when registration opens this summer. There are exciting things happening for the program and I ask for your prayers for Fr. Barr and the parish team for the incoming coordinator as the search process has begun and the program continues to flourish under the new leadership.

May the Peace of Christ be with you always!

Jenny Scott

Restore, Refresh, Renew ~ Acknowledge, Accept, Adore

If you've never been to Adoration, give it a try. An hour in quiet contemplation will provide more physical and spiritual good than you realize. 

Remove yourself from secular, mundane things. Focus on your spiritual relationship with God. Freed from distractions, and before the Blessed Sacrament, you will find yourself in the physical presence of Christ; aware that He is there, at that moment, with you.

You may not walk out of there with the answers to all of the problems that have been weighing you down, but you will walk out of there feeling more refreshed in body and soul than when you went in.

All are welcome from 5:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m daily. For security reasons, only scheduled adorers will have access to the chapel from 10:00 p.m. - 5:00 a.m.

We have a new online scheduling system, that makes it easy to sign up, and manage your schedule. See below:
