Advent Reconciliation

There are extra times for confession this ADVENT.  Monday evenings at Immaculate Conception from 5:00pm to 6:00pm (or longer if there is a line) and the normal Saturday afternoons from 3:30– 4:45pm at Immaculate Heart of Mary.  Give Christ the gift of a contrite heart and receive the gift won by his blood—FORGIVENESS.

Dispensation from Sunday Obligation

While Sunday Masses did resume on the weekend of July 4/5, the dispensation from Sunday Obligation is extended through to Tuesday, February 16, 2021.  The elderly, the sick and those who care for anyone who is vulnerable are encouraged to not attend at this time. 

Sunday Masses are still live streamed.  Father Michael is alternating between the 9:30am and the 11:30am Masses.

Praying the Rosary at IHOM

In these troubled times, we invite you to join the Respect Life Ministry for Rosary prayer at IHOM before each Sunday mass – for our nation, for Holy Mother Church, and to restore the Culture of Life in the world.    

 At Fatima, our Blessed Mother said:  "Pray the Rosary every day in honor of Our Lady of the Rosary to obtain peace in the world . . . for she alone can save it." (July 13, 1917)

Each Sunday at 9 a.m., we will unite ourselves, mentally and spiritually, in a designated set of Mysteries of the Rosary (please see the schedule below) –  and we will pray the Rosary silently – from wherever we are sitting.  In effect, we’ll  be praying “separately” – but together!  And the more participation we have, the more powerful will be the graces obtained!

Sunday  12/6/20       Luminous Mysteries   

Sunday 12/23/20      Sorrowful Mysteries


Social Concerns Ministry Outreach

This year the Social Concerns Ministry will be collecting Christmas toys for children in need, gift cards for teenagers, and hats, scarves, mittens, gloves, socks, and underwear. Gift cards for teenagers from Wal-Mart, Target, Shoe stores, and Dunkin Donuts are in high demand and would be greatly appreciated. We will also accept donations for Two Hearts: diapers, clothes size 2-5, winter coats 12 months to 5T, baby food and formula, baby wash/shampoo, diaper cream, onesies, and gift cards. The donations will be given to children by Fish, Catholic Charities, Two Hearts, and Friendly Hands and to our own families that the Social Concerns Ministry donates to. The collection is taking place the weekends of December 5/6 and December 12/13.  Parishioners can select tags from the giving trees at IHOM located near the choir and ICC in the Bell Tower.  Please drop off the items unwrapped next to the trees. If parishioners are not able to attend week-end Masses but wish to participate in our Giving Trees, we remind all parishioners that both of our churches are open daily from 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM. Tags from the Giving Trees can be picked up at any time during those hours and gifts can be returned during those same time periods We are also collecting food for the families our parish deals with directly.  On behalf of the Social Concerns Ministry, we want to thank you for your generosity the entire year.

ADVENT: PREPARE THE WAY by Augustine Institute

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas,” or at least that’s the assumption based on that familiar holiday song. But what does that look like at your house? Most everyone anticipates the great sales at the mall on the day after Thanksgiving, strings lights on the trees outside, and decorates the inside of their homes. But how exactly are we preparing our hearts for the greatest gift we’ve ever been given? This study addresses secularization and how it has infiltrated the wonder and holiness of Christmas. In contrast to that catchy and popular Johnny Mathis song is the classic Christmas carol “O Holy Night,” which reminds us of the beauty, wonder, anticipation, and preparation of our Lord Jesus. Advent is a holy season in which we prepare for Jesus’ birth and are reminded to watch and prepare for Christ’s second
