Casa Hogar Optical Mission
Members from our Parish are participating in a Vision Mission Trip to Casa Hogar this coming January. They see and help 1000's of people in the one week they are gone, and they bring much needed help to the area. We are sponsoring fund raisers and collecting glasses for this important trip.
If you have interest in going on this trip, or donating items for this mission, please contact Karen Dolan, the Parish Nurse at 715-579-5601.
Basket for donations of used glasses in Fr. Klink Hall or glasses can be dropped off at the Parish Office.
Immaculate Conception is also teaming up with The Green Mill on at least two more dates for fundraising. August 17th and October 12th. 20% of your bill will come back directly to Immaculate Conception to support the Casa Hogar Vision Mission. Please save those dates. Dine at a great neighborhood restaurant, and help support a great cause!
Technology is changing the way we do things. We would like to gather everyone's email in order to be able to send out End of the Year Financials at the end of the year. This will be a big money and time saver! Please help us out and send an email with your name, address and a phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org.
New Parish App is Here!
Immaculate Conception is excited to announce the release of our own parish app. This new app is available for parishioners to download on both Apple iPhones and Android phones. Text App to 88202 to download our Parish App.
We expect the features and capabilities of our new app to foster a stronger sense of community and faith in the daily lives of all parishioners. Immaculate Conception will be able to communicate quick and easy with all parishioners via messages and notifications to keep you in the loop with what is going on in our church. You will then be able to quickly reply to messages or RSVP for upcoming events.
Other features will include:
– the daily readings read at Mass,
– the latest Catholic news from around the world,
– an easy-to-reference list of Catholic prayers with prayer requests,
– a helpful examination of conscience and next confession reminder,
– a reminder feature called “Mass Mode,” for Mass and confession. This includes phone silencing notification to help encourage us all to be more present while at Immaculate Conception.
– and much more.
As you can see, 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.
Our app is available for everyone to download. Please pass this info along to anyone that may be interested or that it may benefit from the Immaculate Conception App. The more people that use and participate, the stronger our Catholic community will become.
