Welcome to Immaculate Conception

TRAVELING VOCATIONS CHALICE The Vocation Ministry team is excited to introduce the Traveling Chalice Program to help encourage prayers for vocations. This is a wonderful opportunity for all parishioners! Individuals or families can sign up to take home a special chalice blessed by Father Kraynak, and every day for one week take a few minutes to pray for vocations using special vocation prayer cards. The chalice is to be returned prior to the next weekend's Mass. It will be displayed in the church and then presented at the end of Mass to the individual or family who is taking it home that week. We invite you to prayerfully consider participating in the program, let's keep the chalice actively traveling throughout the parish community in support of vocations. Sign up is the sacristy for your week with the traveling chalice!

COLD & FLU SEASON During the cold and flu season please remember the following helpful reminders at Mass:

General Considerations: Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or cough/sneeze into your elbow. Wash your hands with soap and water frequently. Alcohol based hand cleaners are also effective. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.

Sign of Peace: Do not be offended if someone chooses not to shake your hand at the sign of peace. If you are ill (and present at Mass), the appropriate response to someone extending a sign of peace might be to bow to them and say, "Peace be with you," to avoid contact while sick.

Reception of Holy Communion: While it is the teaching of the Church that the fullness of the Body and Blood of Christ is contained in the Holy Eucharist under the form of the host that is distributed at Mass, the Church has also extended the privilege to receive Holy Communion under the form of wine. However, if you are feeling ill, please consider receiving Holy Communion in the hand and refrain from receiving the Precious Blood until you are returned to good health.

Stewardship Thought
December 8, 2019 - "Therefore, every tree that does not bear good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire." (Matthew 3:10).

Do you bear good fruit for Christ? Or, do you spend your time, talent, and treasure constantly acquiring more toys, clutter, and junk. Our time, our talent, and our treasure are gifts that God has given us. What we do with them is our gift back to God. What gifts are you planning to give to the Lord during this upcoming Christmas season?
