ICC NEWSLETTER - June 1, 2018
It's officially June, and the sun has actually made an appearance! God is good. Now we ask that He, in His benevolence, to allow it to remain a little sunny, and a bit cooler, for our big day this Sunday. We're expecting company!
Let's get straight to the good stuff.
THE PART ABOUT DEDICATION
Sunday at the 10 AM Mass
we will celebrate our annual
Wedding Anniversary Mass
! Many happy couples -
they all assured me they have
had a disagreement
- will be joining us for a blessing. Join us in celebrating their dedication to God and to each other.
Saturday at 2 PM, thirty-eight (38!) young and
men and women
will stand before the
Most Reverend Gerald Walsh, D.D.
, to receive the
Sacrament of Confirmation
. They've worked very hard, as have their Catechists and parents, to prepare their minds, hearts and souls to receive the third of the three Sacraments of Initiation, and the Gifts and Fruits of the Holy Spirit. Please keep them and their sponsors in your prayers this week.
The VIC is ready!
The truth is, it was the hard work of the Religious and laity that sacrificed to make our church, school/convent and parish hall a reality. Therefore, in honour of those who went before us, and those - like our Confirmandi - who will come after, we will celebrate it, our Parish, and our Faith along with our brothers and sisters who shared in its history. Join us this
Sunday, at 4PM
, and expect to see many of our Village leaders and friends from the Presbyterian and St. Barnabas churches.
It's a beautiful afternoon. Enjoy it. See you on Sunday!
Sincerely Yours in Christ,
