Welcome to Immacolata Parish and School!

Dear Friends,

The Archdiocesan Office of Laity & Family Life is again sponsoring the annual “Catholic Men for Christ” conference and the “Catholic Women for Christ” conference. The men’s conference will be Saturday, February 18, 2017 and the women’s conference will be Saturday, March 25, 2017. Both events will be held at the Touhill Performing Arts Center at the University of Missouri-St. Louis campus, with free parking. These conferences have excellent speakers; the day concludes with Mass in the late afternoon. In order to register, check the websites: www.CatholicMenforChrist.org ; www.CatholicWomenforChrist.org ; or call the Office of Laity and Family Life (792.7183).

Update on the church bells: In my column last week I wrote on the history of Immacolata’s bells in the steeple of the church, and how the computerized bell controller no longer works. I met with the repair man this past week. The bells and computer mechanism were installed when the present church was built back in 1967; the bells of course are still good but the operating system needs to be replaced. It will take between 30 – 60 days for the Verdin Company come out to install a new system. Incidentally, the bells weigh 2,370, 1,197, and 705 pounds respectively and have a combined replacement value of approximately $107,000.

On Friday, February 24, 9:30 am in the parish gymnasium John O’Leary will be here to give one of his very inspiring, dramatic presentations. You may have read his personal story in the book “On Fire.” John is a national best-selling author and motivational speaker in great demand. Everyone is invited; admission is free, but we do ask that you RSVP Kim Gaskell, School Secretary, at kgaskell@immacolata.org so that we can prepare the seating.

Reminder: Make plans to attend our Parish Mission which is right around the corner. Father David Meconi, S.J., will lead the Mission, March 5, 6, 7 (Sunday – Tuesday nights), 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. The Sacrament of Reconciliation will be available on Sunday and Monday evening; Tuesday there will be a social after the Mission. Child care will be available. Come one, two, or all three nights. Each evening we will have Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, a talk by Fr. Meconi, and then Benediction. The topics will be:
Sunday: Receiving the Father’s Love
Monday: Growing as One with Christ
Tuesday: Sent out into the World

The Mission will be a great way to begin the season of Lent, and further Immacolata’s parish mission of bringing people together in Jesus Christ.

Msgr. Vernon Gardin
