To all parishioners and friends of the parish who made donations to our We Give Catholic project on Tuesday, November 28th, thank you. Because of your generosity, we raised $2525.00 towards making our dream of cleaning up and beautifying the area between the school and Waldeisen Hall a reality. If you missed the online campaign, but would like to help, you may write a check to Immaculate Conception with WeGiveCatholic on the memo line and mail it in or drop it off at the rectory. We are truly grateful.
From Pax Christi USA, the Fellowship of Reconciliation and the Diocesan Catholic Commission:
O God, you are the source of life and peace. Praised be your name forever. We know it is you who turns our minds to thoughts of peace. Hear our prayer in this time of war.
Your power changes hearts. Muslims, Christians, and Jews remember, and profoundly affirm, that they are the followers of the one God, children of Abraham, brothers and sisters; enemies begin to speak to one another; those who were estranged join hands in friendship; nations seek the way of peace together.
Strengthen our resolve to give witness to these truths by the way we live. Give to us: Understanding that puts an end to strife; Mercy that quenches hatred; and Forgiveness that overcomes vengeance. Empower all people to live in your law of love. Amen
