PARENT MEETING - CONFIRMATATION PREPARATION Parents of any 8th grade student (or high school student who has not yet celebrated the sacrament) interested in beginning formal preparation for the sacrament of Confirmation, who is currently attending an area Catholic school or PSR program, is invited to attend a Confirmation Preparation Information Meeting on Sunday, September 27, at 11:30am in Tobin Hall. Mrs. Eileen Edwards will review a brief history of the sacrament, as well as the purpose, format, and requirements of the preparation program.

FOOTBALL FRENZY TICKETS K of CThe Knights of Columbus will be selling Football Frenzy Tickets again this Fall. The money raised helps the K of C State Council Charity Fund, who in turn donate to Special Olympics and other similar charities. The winning tickets are determined from the last 10 weeks of the NFL season. If the season is cancelled, the winners will be determined from games played over the past 5 years. The tickets are $20 each and can be purchased from any K of C member. Because we will not be selling in Tobin Hall, we will be happy to meet with you after any Mass. Please call: Mike Reder at 330-297-0113.

RCIA...An Invitation to Journey in Faith Are you, or someone you know, interested in learning more about the Catholic faith, joining the Catholic Church, or completing your initiation through the sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist? If so, our parish community invites you to explore the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) process. For more information contact Eileen Edwards, Director of Religious Education, in the parish office at 330-296-6434.

IT'S TIME FOR A PARISH CENSUS Please help us update our parish records. A 2020 Parish Census form was mailed out to our parishioners this past week. We ask each household to complete this form with as much detail as possible and return it to the parish within the next month. This task may take some time, but the information each family provides will help us to better serve the needs of our members. Please be assured that this information will be kept confidential and used by parish staff only.

If you are new to our parish and have not yet registered, please contact the parish office at 330-296-6434 to have a form sent to you. You can also download the form here.

We thank you for your time and assistance with this project!

CONFESSION If you would like to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation, please contact Father Kraynak at 330- 296-6434 to arrange an appointment.

VOCATIONS "Seek the Lord while He may be found..." While seeking Him in prayer and the sacraments, listen to Him. Are you discerning a vocation to serve the Lord as a priests, deacon, sister or brother? Contact Father Scott Kopp by phone at 330-744-8451, or by email.

YOUNG AT HEART MEMBERS We want to share our thoughts about the future Young at Heart Meetings. We decided it would be best to cancel the meeting for the rest of the year. We fear for your health if we start having the meetings to soon. Like you, we miss our monthly meetings and friendship. We wish you all a very happy holiday season, stay safe and we will see you in January 2021.

PUBLIC CELEBRATION OF MASSMonday, Wednesday, and Friday daily Mass and weekend Masses have resumed at Immaculate Conception. These are the current guidelines concerning Mass: 

  • Masks required at Mass. Please BYOM (bring your own mask) and wear it the entire time you are in the church. Also, please bring your own hand sanitizer.
  • Church doors will open 15 minutes before Mass.
  • We will outline the procedure before Mass for the distribution of Holy Communion.
  • The cry room and the restrooms will be locked and unavailable.
  • The bulletin will include an insert containing weekend hymns, readings, and responses.
  • At the end of Mass, the congregation will be dismissed row-by-row. Please leave the church when your row is dismissed.

FACE MASKS REQUIRED The Governor and the Ohio Health Department have mandated that people in all public gathering areas must comply with the Ohio State order to wear facial coverings and to maintain safe social distancing of six feet to help mitigate the spread of Covi-19. Therefore, all those who attend Mass or any function at Immaculate Conception must please wear a facial covering (mask), properly; covering you nose and your mouth. If you cannot wear a facial covering, you are not feeling well, or you are at a high risk of contracting the coronavirus, we ask that you please stay at home and watch our weekly service in the safety of your own home.

DISPENSATION FROM OBLIGATION TO ATTEND MASS The Catholic faithful who reside in the Diocese of Youngstown and all other Catholics in the diocese and especially those who are sick, or at high risk of becoming sick continue to be dispensed from their Sunday obligation until further notice.

BAPTISM PREPARATION Registered members wishing to have a baby or child (up to 7 years of age) baptized must first participate in a preparation class. You may attend the class before your child is born. Please contact Eileen Edwards at 330-296-6434 to arrange for your child's baptism and your participation in the class.

PRAYER LIST If you or some one you know would like to be put on the prayer list, please contact Roberta Held at 330-296-4093.

Stewardship Thought
September 20, 2020 - "Are you envious because I am generous?" is the question the landowner asks a laborer in today's Gospel. Can a Christian steward be envious? As humans, it is natural for us to compare ourselves with others, but today, Jesus' message is that we should be grateful for what we've been given. Perhaps like the laborer, we can be a little more grateful for the gifts God ha given to us instead of comparing ourselves with others.
