As we celebrate the summer here at Immaculate Conception, hopefully it is a time to reflect on how blessed we are as a parish family and individually with the gifts and graces God has bestowed on us.  We look at the beauty of nature around us, the beauty of our families, and the ability to spend time with one another.  All of these are gifts from God.  In recognition of the blessings God has bestowed on us, we are called to be responsible stewards of His gifts!  We do that with our talents, our time and our resources.  We also do that as a parish, sharing our resources with those in need, helping everyone to grow in holiness and growing in our relationship with God, one another and ourselves.  We also do that on a wider scale with the Catholic Ministries Appeal which helps many more throughout our diocese.  As always thank you for your generosity towards the Parish as we continue to be good stewards of God’s gifts to us.  For now, we continue our walk with the Lord.
