KC Breakfast this Sunday (Today!)
KNIGHTS CORNER KC Breakfast this Sunday, Nov. 17th at the IC Parish Center 8:30am-11:30am
November is the Month of the Holy Souls in Purgatory
As Catholics, we know that Purgatory is the place we are purified from every attachment to sin and worldly things so that we are prepared to come before the holy presence of God. In our charity for those who have died, we pray for the souls undergoing this purification in a special way during November. I offer you the St. Gertrude prayer as a great way to pray for these beloved souls: Eternal Father, I offer you the Most Precious Blood of your Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the holy souls in purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal church, those in my own home, and within my family. Amen
Christmas Trolley Ride
Mark your calendars for Friday, December 6 at 5:30 pm for this fun gathering. We will be touring and looking at holiday lights in the Whispering Creek, Cherrywood, and Applewood neighborhoods with the opportunity to do some caroling. Afterwards, we will come back to Immaculate Conception church hall for treats and hot cocoa. A total of 64 seats are available and the cost is $15 per person. F
Festival of Trees
This Advent the parish is going to be hosting a Festival of Trees. Clubs, business, small groups, etc. will be able to decorate trees to be displayed in the Parish Center/Office area. Each tree will have a theme and will thus be decorated accordingly. For instance, Fr. Andrew and I might decorate a tree for priests with religious symbols like vestments, chalices, roman collars and the like. Trees will be decorated from Sunday, Dec. 1st through Wednesday, Dec. 4th. The trees will be located throughout the parish offices and parish center at IC. Stay tuned for more info. You must supply your own tree, however, we do have a few extras here at the office, if you are interested.
