THE WARMING CENTER This winter, the Haven of Portage County with the support of Immaculate Conception Parish, will provide a warm and safe place for the homeless to get out of the cold in the Warming Center in our Social Hall.

The Haven will have a need for fleece throws to provide the people seeking shelter on cold nights. These fleece throws will be used as blankets and then be given to each individual.

We would like to help The Haven with their need, by donating money for the purchase of these throws. To make a monetary donation toward these purchases, please place your monetary donation in a marked envelope (FLEECE THROW) and place it in the Collection Containers in the Church or mail a check to the Church office marked with "FLEECE THROW", by Sunday, January 31, 2021. The throws will be purchased and donated to The Haven. Thank you for your generosity.

Please be generous as you have always been in the past.

Stewardship Thought
January 17, 2021 - In today's First Reading, Samuel answers the call of the Lord. At the time he didn't know it was the Lord who called, but thought it was Eli. Imagine not knowing the Lord and still answering the call. As Christian stewards, we know the Lord calls us to share our gifts with him and with one another, but do we answer his call as readily as Samuel?
