WHAT IS A PARISH MISSION?
It is three nights to come together to pray and learn as a parish
community and to have our faith revived! Join
Immacolata’s parish-wide celebration of faith with
Father David Meconi, S.J.
who will lead the Parish Mission next
March 5, 6, and 7—Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday evenings, the first week of Lent, 2017
Many of you already know Fr. Meconi from Mass here the last
couple years. We are grateful for
his inspiring, exciting homilies, his
personal faith, and knowledge of Scripture and Church teaching. Each evening will be one hour
long, beginning at 7:00 p.m
. in Church. There will
be time for silent prayer, instruction from Fr. Meconi
, Benediction, and then an
opportunity for receiving the
Sacrament of Reconciliation.
Mark your calendars!

neighbor. For people on the go, the new
is a convenient
way of reading the daily Scriptures
of the Mass, praying, and learning new
ideas about life. The high point of
Ordinary Time each week is Sunday Mass, which proclaims to the world our personal and communal faith in
God. The following words from St. Basil the Great (d. 379 AD) reflect the need to grow in God’s love:
“Love of God is not something that can be taught...As soon
as the living creature (that is, man) comes to be, a
power of reason is implanted in us like a seed, containing within it the ability and the
need to love....Try to fan
into flame the spark of divine love that is hidden within you, as far as
you are able through the power of the
