Pastor's Message

Dear Parishioners and friends,

 

Peace and blessings!

 

We welcome this weekend Fr. Huver Navarro from Huánuco, Peru. Posted on the parish Facebook page is a photo album of his mission in Peru.

 

Monday, for the first time, we will celebrate the feast of Blessed Solanus Casey, OFM Cap. As you may recall, Fr. Solanus was beatified this past November. Special blessings upon his family members, especially those who are parishioners here at ICC.
Next Saturday at the 5pm Mass will celebrate the Sacrament of Baptism with the Wolf Family.


Mark your calendars now for Wednesday, August 15th, the feast of the Assumption of Mary, a holy day of obligation. Mass schedule will be in the bulletin next weekend.


If you are joining us for the first time or visiting for the summer, our parish family welcomes you to our church. We’re glad you are here to celebrate the Eucharist with us.


Have a blessed week.


In His peace,


Fr. Martin

This is a reminder that next weekend will be our Diocesan Mission Appeal weekend. We welcome Fr. Huver Navarro from Huanuco, Peru. (See page 5 for more details.) Posted on Facebook is a photo album of his mission in Peru.

 

We continue the work of preparing the St. Joseph Center for our needs. Presently, we have a number of clients with offices in the building and we are awaiting their leases to end. In the meantime, we will be collecting their rent which will help us with the cost of the center. We are using the center for some meetings now.

 

We are grateful to an anonymous family from our school who have purchased a new fence for both the school and the new playground. What a blessing! Thank you!!!

Dear Parishioners and friends,

Within the next two weeks all registered parishioners will be receiving a letter from me concerning St. Joseph Center and much needed updating for our school. If you do not receive a letter it is because you are not registered or we do not have your updated mailing address. Jim Welter and Jay Thorndike have stepped forward as the co-chairs for this campaign.

 

Interested in some history about the Capuchin Friars who minister here at Immaculate Conception? Wednesday, July 18th after our 5:30 pot luck dinner I will give a presentation on the Capuchins, and in particular, the Province of the Sacred Stigmata of St. Francis. The presentation will be at 7:00 in the St. Francis Room.

 

Our Diocesan Mission Appeal weekend will be July 28/29. We will welcome Fr. Huver Navarro from Huanuco, Peru. More information next weekend.

 

Lastly, if you park in the bank parking lot on Church Street, please cross at the light, the crosswalks. This is for your safety and protection. Be sure to say thank you to the Hendersonville police officers who are hear each weekend for your safety.

 

Have a blessed week.

 

In His peace,

Dear Parishioners and friends,

During the summer months many of you will be traveling for vacations. May you use this time to relax with family and friends, but please don’t forget about God. We don’t take a vacation from God during the summer. You can always go to:
CatholicMassTimes.org to find a church and Mass times near you.

 

We continue to work on making sure that all who volunteer at the church or school have taken Protecting God’s Children and have had a Background Check. This are required by not only the Diocese of Charlotte, but the National Conference of Catholic Bishops. An individual must complete both before getting involved in a ministry.

 

Enjoy your summer and be safe.

 

In His peace,

 

Fr. Martin

Nothing new to report of St. Joseph Center. We continue to work with those presently leasing the building and have begun a plan on our personal use of the rooms. More details coming.
