Catholic Charities' Men Who CookPlease mark your calendars and plan to attend Catholic Charities' annual Men Who Cook, Portage County. This year's event will be held on Saturday, April 21, 2018 at the Parish Hall. This year's theme will be "Hope Grows". This fun and entertaining evening of food sampling, raffles, entertainment and socializing raises vital funds that enable Catholic Charities to provide programs and services benefiting those in need in our community. More information will be provided as we get closer to the date.

CATHOLIC EXPONENT "Do everything for the glory of God," we hear from St. Paul in his First Letter to the Corinthians. Yet, with work, school, family, and everything else - plus the bombardment of broadcast and social media - it's easy to think about everything but God and His glory. That is one of the many reasons for reading the Catholic Exponent, your diocesan newspaper. The news, commentary, Scripture reflection, and adult faith formation found in the pages of the Exponent help us to "keep our eyes on the prize," the reason for our lives and our ultimate goal. Subscribe or renew your subscription today by dropping "The Catholic Exponent" envelope from your parish packet into the collection basket. Or call 330-744-5251 or email us at exposubscriptions@youngstowndiocese.org to request subscription information.

TRANSPORTATION SERVICE AVAILABLE There are volunteers available for this service. If you are interested, please call Karen at 330-296-4682 or Dorothy at 330-296-4191. This is for Parish events ONLY: Masses, confession, spaghetti dinners, rosary or other church related activities.

BAPTISM PREPARATION Parents anticipating the baptism of their children are required to attend a preparation class prior to celebration of the sacrament. This session includes video instruction, discussion, Q & A, and a walk-thru of the rite of Baptism. Godparents also welcome. Please contact Eileen Edwards at 330-296-6434 for more information and to register for the class.

ARE YOU REGISTERED? To avoid problems and misunderstandings, especially when planning baptisms, marriages, etc., be sure that you are registered and active at IC. Attending Mass at Immaculate Conception does not automatically mean you are registered. Each family member, 21 years of age or older, should be registered separately. Please contact Eileen Edwards at the parish office (330-296-6434).

Stewardship Thought
February 18, 2018 - "After John had been arrested, Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the gospel of God..."   -- Mark 1:14

Do you ever think about how difficult it must have been for Jesus to come into Galilee, knowing that John had just been arrested for teaching the same message that Jesus was proclaiming. It must have taken great love and trust for Jesus to do what the Father had sent Him here on earth to do. In the same way, following a life of stewardship takes great love and trust from us. We must be willing to surrender completely to God, trusting that God will always give us all that we need to fulfill His plan for us.
