January Update

News January 20, 2023

Dear Parishioners,

As the New Year 2023, is moving smoothly, I trust that that you had good Christmas celebrations and are now in your different activities!

At Immaculate Conception Parish, we had wonderful Christmas and New Year Celebrations. One of the connecting events was the fact of having a Christmas Dinner offered for the Community, after having postponed it because of the pandemic. It was a wonderful opportunity to share meals and interact with people, some for the first time, others and others for some times.

I would like to thank our Volunteers, and the Christmas Dinner Organizer Holly Garcia, in a special way for having worked hard to organize the event.

I would like to thank everyone who generously to our Grand Annual Campaign, in order to support Evangelization activities at our Parish. Out of your positive response, we have met our 2022 Grand Annuals Goal, of $20,000. Till to date, we raised $22,561. Thank you for the support of our Parish.

Christmas Collections, we were able to raise $ 6,705. These funds were directed to the Society of Africans Missions for the Works of Missions and taking care of the SMA Senior Priests. On behalf of the Society of African Missions, I would like to extend our sincere gratitude for your great generosity. And may you all be blessed abundantly. Once again, we have received a Deacon by name of Peter Claver, a student from Seminary Pope John XXIII National Seminary. Deacon Peter Claver is from the Diocese of Columbus Ohio, as the Seminarian, Jayson Fox. He will be coming to our Parish on Friday evening and back to the Seminary on Sunday evening. I wish Deacon Peter Claver a kind welcome at our Parish. As time goes on, you will get to know him.

God’s Blessings in all you do.
Fr. Chacha, Sma.
