A Message from Fr. Anthony
As many of you know, our pews are in desperate need of refurbishment, due to all of the disinfectant that was needed to keep them sanitized during the coronavirus outbreak Thanks be to God that we are moving beyond that and things are coming back to normal every day!
The time has come to refurbish the pews. You may have noticed the flooring under the pews is very old and in need of replacement, so it makes sense to do the flooring too. After discussion with the finance and pastoral councils, we decided that it was only a short matter of time before the carpeting would need replacing as well. So it has been decided to do it all at once.
We will be refurbishing all the flooring throughout the nave of the church, this will basically be phase two of what was done in the sanctuary. When it is completed, it will be beautiful. In its beauty we will truly be praising God and it will help our church be a more glorious place to worship and pray.
I am asking for your patience during this 2.5-3 month project. Beginning the weekend of July 9th Masses will feel a bit different, with temporary seating while refurbishment takes place. Daily Masses will be held in the Centennial Hall.
There will still be confessions on Saturdays, but for the month of July, there will be no confessions on Wednesdays. They will resume the first week of August. Please still come to church/Sunday Mass at IC, we are a parish family and we need to worship together.
July is truly the best time of the year to begin this project, so there is little interference with the school schedule, weddings, and major church holidays.
With that said, I am asking anyone who finds themselves in a position to donate to this project, to please do so. Know that your generosity is greatly appreciated. I myself, plan to make a $1000 donation. You can simply send your donation to the parish office labeled the refurbishment project.
I am so proud and grateful to be your pastor. This second phase of renovation is simply a continuation of what we have done in the past and continue to do at Immaculate Conception.
Through the goodwill, prayers, generosity, and liturgical celebrations of our parish, the light of Christ shines. We don’t hide it, we put it on a lampstand for all to see, and I say let it shine, praise be to God!
