Diocesan Annual Appeal 2017-2018

Stewards of Hope         DAA Logo

It is very important that each of you consider making a significant contribution to the Diocesan Annual Appeal in order to assure the Diocese can continue to support its mission and ministries, and that there are additional funds to help distressed parishes, religious education programs, and schools in need. By pledging, you make payments over several months concluding on June 30,or you can make a one-time gift.

“We are called to share our gifts in support of the Church. We must first support our parish and then our Diocese and the Church throughout the world. The Diocesan Annual Appeal is a very effective way to support ministries outside of our parish boundaries, as well as to support the services that the Diocese provides to our parish.

The funds you provide are deeply appreciated by the parish, schools, and people served by the Diocese.

FROM CONFLICT TO COMMUNION VIDEO AVAILABLE!

In observation of the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther proposing his 95 Theses in a desire to reform the Church, a joint Lutheran-Catholic prayer service was held October 29th at Immaculate Conception, in conjunction with our neighbors, St. John's Lutheran Church. Video of this special event is available on our parish Facebook page (www.facebook.com/iccatholicchurch) and on the Regis Catholic Schools Facebook page.

FOR THE HEARING IMPAIRED

For those attending Mass at Immaculate Conception Church that may be hearing impaired, the church's audio/video system has the capability to enhance the audio for those wearing hearing aids. For better audio reception during Mass, please activate the T-Coil setting on your hearing aid. Also available are receivers that can pick up the audio signal. These are similar to a Walkman radio in that a person can put on the headphones, turn on the receiver and be able to listen to the audio of the Mass. If you are interested in using one of the receivers during Mass, please let one of the ushers know and they can get you a receiver to use.

This app offers a lot of capabilities for improving parish communication and serving as a faith building resource. It is well thought out and should become a real asset to complement our daily faith lives.
