LEARN YOUR FAITH/RCIA: an Invitation for
Conversion & Full Initiation into the Church
Thursdays 7:00 - 8:00 pm parish hall
If you are someone or do you know someone who . . .

_ Everyone is welcome to attend!
Dear Parishioners,
During November, the parishes of our
Diocese are asked to welcome nominations for
delegates to the upcoming Synod next year. I ask,
therefore, that you please consider becoming a delegate by
nominating yourself or another faithful parishioner who
would be willing to be one of our delegates. We are entitled
to 16 delegates and must also have at least 3 alternates. It
will be the responsibility of our Pastoral Council to select the
delegates from those nominated at their December 8th
meeting. Delegates should reflect the demographic composition of our parish.
According to Canon Law #460: “A diocesan synod
is a group of selected priests and other members of the
Christian faithful of a particular church who offer assistance
to the diocesan bishop for the good of the whole diocesan
community according to the norm of Canons #461-468.”
For implementation of these Canons, the Diocese of
Reno Synod will bring together people from the entire
Catholic community to discuss the vision for our Diocese.
The Synod and the sessions leading to it should be a Spiritled process that will give our Diocese clear priorities for the
We are all grateful to Frank Bigotti for his ministry
of removing the noisy latch system on the two doors leading
to our social hall and for his doing any necessary refinishing
of the beautiful doors. We will no longer be subject to the
BANG! CRASH CRASH sound as persons entered/exited
these doors, disturbing meetings inside.
The Fundraising Committee will meet Monday at
6:00 p.m. in the parlor. We expect all groups and organizations utilizing our facilities to have a responsible representative present. The Finance Committee will meet Monday,
November 24th, at 6:00 p.m. in the parlor.
Our Confirmation I & II teens will be holding their
retreat Friday evening and all day Saturday. Please keep
them in your prayers.
Your Pastor,
Good stewards are like the industrious
and reliable servants in today’s Gospel,
prudently using and multiplying the gifts entrusted to them
by God. Each of us also has received gifts and talents
which the Lord has every right to expect us to utilize
them for the building of His kingdom here on earth.
The 2nd collection next Sunday will be for
our Building Needs Fund. In August, we
paid an extra $5,452 towards the principal on
our $1.37 million mortgage and transferred
$3,475 to our savings account for future maintenance

The 2nd collection today is for the Catholic
Campaign for Human Development. The
CCHD has come to the aid of communities
nationwide for over 40 years in an effort to
eradicate poverty. During World Youth
Day 2013, Pope Francis told us to “never
tire of working for a more just world, marked by greater
solidarity.” CCHD puts these words into action by funding
housing, education, and the development of job opportunities. In addition, please remember that 25% of the
collection’s proceeds stay here in our diocese to fight
poverty in our communities and defend the dignity of our
Please make 2nd collection checks payable to Immaculate Conception Church. The bank will not accept

Prayer for our Diocesan Synod
God our Father, You have called us by baptism
to be faithful members of your Church.
Send the Holy Spirit to guide the work
of the second Synod of the Diocese of Reno.
Inspire us to bring new life
to the mission of your Church
here in Northern Nevada.
Through the work of our Synod,
may we follow where the Holy Spirit leads,
to become instruments and hope for the world
in spreading the Good News
to people far and wide.
With example and help of Mary our Mother
who gathered with the disciples in the upper room,
may we listen to the promptings of the Spirit.
Come, Holy Spirit,
fill the hearts of your faithful,
and kindle in them the fire of your love.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
