Next Sunday, November 23rd, is the Feast of
Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe

exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, singing of the Divine
Mercy Chaplet, adoration and Benediction. The Knights of
Columbus, in color guard formation, will be present and will
add to the dignity and solemnity of the occasion.
As the 2014 liturgical year comes to a close, this special
observance will offer our parish family an opportunity to give
honor and glory to Christ our King. It is an appropriate time
to renew our love and loyalty to Christ who cares for each of
us now and until the end of time.

Looking For A Little Quiet Time With
Great “Girl And God” Bonding?
We’ve got just the venue! All women of the parish are invited
to a “Morning of Reflection” on Saturday, November 22nd,

November & August Altar Society committees are in charge of
the refreshments. The theme will center around our prayer life

We know that Saturday time is very precious for those of you
who work outside the home, so we’re hoping that you can set
aside this three hour block to reflect, to meet and to converse
with other women. There is no charge for the mini-retreat, and
all are strongly encouraged to bring a friend. If you have questions, call Carolyn Chalmers at 835-5544; for ride assistance,
please call a few days ahead of time. Hope you can come!

The IC CYM is asking for your help again this year with their
Thanksgiving Day project. We will provide 75 families with a
Thanksgiving Meal!
It is our desire to provide not only the food to feed them, but all
the necessary ingredients for them to make a home-cooked
meal for their family.
The CYM will assemble the 75 boxes of meal items, so that
families may pick them up and prepare their own meal. A list of
needed items can be found at the church exits. If you would like
to donate an item, several items, or fill a whole box, your
generosity will be greatly appreciated.
Please bring all donations to the church office by Friday,
November 21st. We are also accepting monetary donations for
this project. The approximated cost of each meal for a family of
six is $50. Please make checks payable to IC CYM and place
in an envelope marked “Thanksgiving Project.” Together we
can make a difference to a family in need; and as we care for
those who are disadvantaged, that is where we encounter and
minister to Christ!
A Word of Thanks... We wish to recognize and thank all
of our bulletin advertisers. Due to their generosity, the
bulletin is provided to us at no charge. We ask our parishioners to please support these businesses whenever possible.

Living Unbound Sunday
Would you like to give a child one of the greatest
gifts possible this Christmas Season? Unbound
(formerly CFCA) is an organization that works with
families living in poverty in 21 countries. Here at IC on the
weekend of November 29th & 30th there will be an Unbound
ambassador sharing the opportunity to sponsor a child. We
invite and encourage you to stop by the sponsorship table,
which will be set up in the vestibule of the church, to learn
more about Unbound and how you can make this Christmas
memorable for both yourself and a child in need.
GET READY
The Letters of Paul to the Thessalonians
are among his earliest writings, and are driven by
his belief and the belief of the entire early
Christian community that the return of Christ was
imminent. Therefore, to devote time or attention to
anything else was foolish.
As time progressed, this fervor receded a bit. Today we
may wonder, when we hear these readings about the coming
end-times, if we should take them to heart. What should we do
when we hear that the day of the Lord will come upon us “like
a thief at night”? (1 Thessalonians 5:2) Does this mean we are
to stop our long-range goal-setting, get rid of our yearly calendars and planners, or stop putting money in the college education fund? Of course not. What it does mean is that we need to
change our lives, living like children of the light and illuminating the world around us with the light of the gospel. Then,
on that day, when the details of our daily living become
unimportant, we will be ready to find our peace and security in
Christ Jesus. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.
Ladies of the Parish: The Altar Society cordially
invites the women of the parish to join us for our
annual Christmas Party on Monday, December 1st,
at 6:30 pm in Immaculata Hall courtesy of the
December & June committees. There will be a short meeting
with lots of fun, fellowship and light refreshments to follow.
We will also take up a collection for our annual charitable
project. Be prepared to stretch your vocal cords and join in our
Christmas music sing-a-long! If you have questions or need a
ride, call Joan Finnegan at 835-7144 or Carolyn Chalmers at
835-5544 a few days ahead of time so we can arrange it.
Have You Moved? If you have a new address or a
change in your phone number, please don’t forget to let
the church office know. Accurate address and phone records are
very important. You may call the church office at 835-4323 or
mail in your updated information. Thanks for your help!
Support Our Seminarian!
Please take time to send letters, cards,
food, and/or gifts to our adopted seminarian, Ramses Mendieta
when you get a chance. Like all our seminarians, he is in a
seminary hundreds of miles away and it is easy to feel disconnected from our Diocese. Your thoughtfulness will, undoubtedly, help him feel connected! His address is 200 Hill Drive,

Living with Mental Illness Mental illness is cyclical, where a
person experiences periods of stability interrupted by times of
instability. With effective treatment & support, many people
with mental illness are able to lead relatively normal lives, and
their illness may not be evident to others. For people who live
with severe and persistent mental illness, it can be significantly
debilitating. Mental illness impacts self-esteem, relationships
and the ways in which an individual participates in school,
work and the community. How can we be of support to people
in our parish community living with this challenging illness ?
Catholic Charities has initiated a support group for people
with mental health challenges to know that they are valued and
genuinely welcome. The group is called the St. Dymphna
Society. Meetings are held the last Tuesday of each month in
Fletcher Hall, at St. John Center, at 6 pm. Mass is held, and
meetings follow. Contact Rebecca Cargile, 664-0340x355. No
reservations are necessary and all are welcome!
