Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Last weekend we said goodbye to our Parochial Vicar, Fr. Johnathan Torres. Bishop Jugis has asked him to serve as Parochial Vicar at St. Matthew’s in Charlotte, and as a part-time Chaplain at Charlotte Catholic High School. We wish him well in his new assignment, and assure him of our continuing prayers.

This weekend we welcome our new Parochial Vicar, Fr. Nohe Torres. Father Nohe comes to us after serving as Parochial Vicar at the parish of St. Francis of Assisi in Lenoir, NC. Father Nohe will serve in a unique manner here at IC, as he is a part-time vicar to our parish, and to the Basilica of St. Lawrence in Asheville. Therefore, Fr. Nohe will be splitting his week between IC and St. Lawrence. This will be challenging for him, so please pray for him as he begins his service to both parishes this weekend. Please be sure to welcome Fr. Nohe when you see him!

And finally, we are looking forward to planning some welcome back events in the near future. As our Welcome Back Committee begins its work, look for more news on social, spiritual and liturgical events designed to bring us back together to continue our mission as disciples of Jesus Christ!

In Christ, through Mary Immaculate,
Fr. Cook
