From the Pastor
My Dear Parishioners,
Please join me at the church on September 8 at 7:00 pm as Bishop Lennon installs me as your next pastor. This is a joyous time in my life and one that means a great deal to me, because at this celebration I will offer my promises of fidelity to you as I strive each day to serve you faithfully as your pastor. The date of my installation was chosen specifically because this day is the memorial of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary. I have been drawn to this memorial ever since I first learned of it. This year, we will celebrate both the Blessed Mother’s birthday and the day of my installation. As I prepare, I ask you to help me. I ask the whole parish to please pray one rosary for me. Your prayers are powerful and, through the Rosary, I ask the Blessed Virgin for her prayers also and to intercede for me in my pastorate. I hope to see you all there and please know how much I am looking forward to serving you as your pastor.
Save the date: Please save the date of Wednesday, September 16 and join us at 7:00 pm as Justin Fatica and the Hard as Nails ministry will offer a mini retreat here at Immaculate Conception. I have not had the opportunity to hear Justin speak, but many have told me that his message is one that is powerful, high energy and inspires us to give more of ourselves to the Lord. This event is a joint effort with Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish and Mater Dei School. It is Fr. Behrend’s and my hope that both parish communities will join together as we are challenged to live deeply and love more firmly as a family.
Come see Justin Fatica, nationally renowned speaker who is known for his dynamism and passion for bringing the Gospel and awakening the world to the power of God's love. Justin is the Executive Director of Hard as Nails, a best-selling author of four books, a husband and a father of four. He works evangelizing youth and families across this nation, letting everyone know how amazing they are as God’s kids!
