From the Pastor


This weekend our parish celebrates the ordination of Deacon Eric Ruehr as a permanent deacon to the service of the Diocese of Youngstown. On Saturday morning, August 31, Deacon Eric was ordained at St. Columba Cathedral in Youngstown by Bishop George V. Murry, S.J.

Deacon Eric, along with his wife, Jennifer, and their two sons, Aidan and Ian, have been members of Immaculate Conception Parish since 2005. He has volunteered in our Parish School of Religion, RCIA, and Adult Education programs. Deacon Eric has been employed part time as the Facilities Administrator of our parish since 2017.

His ministry as a deacon will be in the areas of religious education, pastoral visiting of the sick, and as a deacon at masses. Deacon Eric will have faculties to administer the sacraments of Baptism and Marriage outside of mass. He may also be a leader of prayer for Communion services in church, bringing Eucharist to the homebound and conducting Christian Burials (funerals) in the church and at funeral parlors outside of mass. Deacon will also be the ordinary minister of the Gospel at mass and will read the General Intercessions and is an ordinary minister of Holy Communion.

Our parish celebration of Deacon Eric's new ministry will take place at the 10:30am Mass this Sunday with a brunch reception at the IC Social Hall to follow. Please come and congratulate Deacon Eric Ruehr and his family.

Father Bill Kraynak

Stewardship Thought
October 20, 2019 - "…proclaim the word, be persistent whether it is convenient or inconvenient..." (2 Timothy 4:2)

It is not always convenient to be a good steward, especially when all the temptations of our busy and materialistic world get in the way. Now add our own pride and ego into the equation and living a stewardship lifestyle may be downright uncomfortable! Remember, God didn't call us to be comfortable. He called us to be faithful.
