From the Pastor
I know we all like it when we have an opportunity to try something new or when we buy or receive something that is new to us. There is a sense of excitement that comes along with new things. Here at IC we are trying something new when it comes to our attempts as a parish community to minister to our high school youth. AD VERITAS (Latin for: towards Truth) is the name of our new High School Theology program - it is being offered Sundays mornings through the year beginning this month. It is not a class, and when our young people come, they will encounter new ways to discover the richness of our Catholic Faith with their friends! All youth are welcome - bring a friend & register today!
Another new thing for the young people of our parish will be increased opportunities for them to serve. Greg & Christine Schmidt who have faithfully served the youth of IC for many years have graciously offered their time to organize service projects and opportunities throughout the year for our young people’s participation. Keep an eye out for bulletin, website and personal invitations and be ready when God calls you to serve! I want to take this opportunity to thank Greg & Christine for all they have done through the years to serve the youth of our parish - we are blessed by their love for our youth. I also want to thank Mike Herpy & Amy Silvaroli for their leadership in our new AD VERITAS program - let's pray for them and the youth they are called to serve! In addition to this, thanks goes out to Diana Lipfird our Parish Catechetical Leader who organizes all the behind-the-scenes work that goes into our religious education programming.
Let us pray that these "new" efforts are rewarding for our entire parish community!
I am excited to announce the launch of a new parish website designed to provide educational resources to help you create and update your personal estate plan.
In their pastoral letter, Stewardship: A Disciple’s Response, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops reminds us that a good disciple “receives God’s gifts gratefully, cultivates them responsibly, shares them in justice and love with all, and returns them with increase to the Lord.” As a parish, we are asked to provide information to families and individuals to help you practice responsible stewardship.
Our new parish website gives you a starting point to help you in the estate planning process. (Click link at the bottom of this article). You have the ability to view and request educational materials and practical information to get you started.
Thoughtful planning on your part can be one of the best gifts you can give to your family, reducing administrative time, expense and inconvenience that your loved ones will have to bear later. Once you have taken care of your family, you can learn about ways to express your gratitude and love for God with a gift that will strengthen the future ministry of our Church.
I hope you will spend some time using this resource to aid you in the planning process. If you wish to speak with someone personally, please contact our parish coordinator in this effort, Ron Felter at 440-942-4500.
May God bless you for your faithful discipleship, charity and all you do to build His kingdom here on earth.
