Immaculate Conception Bulletin


I.C. DENNISON – September 10, 2017 COLUMN I


This Thursday at 7:00pm, we will have a Traditional Latin Mass for the Triumph of the Cross.  This marks the 10th anniversary of the permission for any priest to celebrate the older form of the liturgy.  If you haven’t been to one of these special Masses, make sure not to miss it. 

The time is now: RCIA is coming together.  It looks like it may be a large group this year!  Anyone you may know who may be interested in exploring the possibility of joining the Catholic Faith, get us in touch with them as soon as possible because the group will be meeting.   

In that same vein, you may notice some new faces at Mass.  As always, please welcome everyone and help them feel comfortable and offer to assist in using the missalette and hymnal to follow the readings and music.  Catholic parishes do not generally have a reputation for hospitality, unfortunately, and newcomers can feel very intimidated.  Let’s be the exception to that rule.

Several people have asked about having a parish Bible Study.  Certainly there would be sufficient interest; we also need to consider sufficient commitment.  A trial short series could be presented in the October-November time frame.  If you would participate, call the office and let us know what night(s) of the week you would NOT be available so we can gauge whether or not it would be feasible.

In Our Lord & Our Lady,

Father Ty Tomson



The Lamb of God and the breaking of the Consecrated Host harken to Holy Thursday most powerfully.  The Paschal Lamb, the sin-offering in the Temple in Jerusalem during Passover, remains the historical spiritual highlight of the Jewish liturgical year.  What else is Christianity about, but Jesus, Who sacrificed His Life to take away our sins?  Remember, at every Mass, you are at the Last Supper!


Welcome back members and new members who wish to be a part of our singing family of God.

Choir rehearsal will begin Thursday September 21st at 6:30 pm.  The Choir sings the 2nd and 4th Sunday each month at the 10 am Mass.  So please come and try it for a few weeks to see if God is calling you to serve in the Music Ministry.

Junior High and High School students are most welcome.  Singers are needed. For more information contact Choir Director Rosemary Zorzi at 740-922-3882.

We praise God for the many years our choir has served God and His People.  Please join us!!!

“He who sings, Prays twice”



Catholic Relief Services will be collecting money during the month of September to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey.  If you would like to help just put money in an envelope and mark it Hurricane Harvey.  We will send it to Catholic Relief Services.  Please help the survivors rebuild their homes and lives.

Any reasonalbe person considers the possibility that he (or she) could be wrong regarding any important position they take.

If the pro-life movement is wrong, then we are guilty of trying to deny women a so-called right to privacy (which has never been part of our Constitution).

But, if the pro-abortion side is wrong, then they are indisputabley and directly responsible for the slaughter and mass murder of millions of innocent children –three and a half thousand a day in the Untied States.

So, the question is, would it be better to be pro-life and wrong, or pro-choice and wrong?  The answer is very clear!
