FROM THE PASTOR"In the days when Christ Jesus was in the flesh,……he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him." Hebrews 5:7-9

Knowing that we are coming to the end of Lent on Holy Thursday with the Mass of the Lord's Supper, we prepare ourselves for the great celebration of Easter. We should make sure that we are in the state of grace. That we have celebrated the sacrament of reconciliation and have truly used this season of Lent to be prepared for the renewal of our Baptismal vows. There are only a few more days left to take some time this week to get your heart and soul ready to celebrate Easter.

Communal Penance Services are still available and individual confession can be made by calling the parish office at 330-296-6434. To make an appointment you only need to give the priest your first name and set a time and date to either meet in the office or at church.

SPAGHETTI DINNER NEED CHAIRPERSON The Spaghetti Dinner needs a new chairperson. Will be trained by the current chairman Bill & Pauline Damicone (330-297-6618) who are retiring.

Requirements are… • You don't need to cook. • You do need to like people. • Have some sense of organization. • Are able to keep a cool head in a crisis. • Respect that other people have been doing their jobs for years and are very happy to help. • Would like to have your summers off and work hard during the winter.

Know that your efforts will be blessed by God and all the people of Immaculate Conception. • Like the idea of bringing the people of the parish together for fun, good food and fellowship more that making money. • If you have doubts talk to Father Kraynak for encouragement

Stewardship Thought
MARCH 22, 2015 - The letter to the Hebrews reminds us that even Christ "learned obedience from what he suffered". As we continue in our Lenten journey, are we striving to learn from the disciplines of the season, not just until Easter, but for a permanent conversion of heart?
