As we announced last weekend, Bishop Bartchak has ordered that the Communion Cup
with the Lord’s Precious Blood be suspended until after the flu season. This is a prudent
precaution. But germs can be transmitted in other ways than that. Please keep in mind
that it is not a sin to stay home from Mass if you are sick! Nor is it a sin to stay home if
your immune system is weak. Our parish will bring Holy Communion to you if you are ill for
a time.
Also the weather can compromise our health. Last weekend three parishioners suffered
broken hips. If you are elderly it is not a sin to miss Mass because of icy conditions.
Please be safe.
CHURCH LENDING LIBRARY: MISSING ITEMS
We are happy the Church Lending Library gets heavy
use by families and individuals. Can you help locate a
few items which were borrowed and not returned? Catholicism: 5 DVD set by Fr. Robert Barron; Creating Sabbath Space: 3 DVD set by Fr. Ron Rolheiser;
DVD: King David; and one book, the September
Volume of Butler’s Lives of the Saints. Please
search your shelves at home for these important
Church Library items.
FESTIVAL NOODLE MAKING DATES

Fridays.
PASTORAL COUNCIL NEWS
There will be four vacancies on our parish Pastoral Council in March, so it is time for elections!
Two of those four vacancies are in our youngest age group, 18-35 year olds: Two other vacancies are in our
oldest age group, ages 55 and up.
Thirteen people were nominated for the 18-35 group, but only two accepted: Ronald Rhoades II, and Kristen
Sossong. Therefore, there is no need to hold an election for this age group. Congratulations to Ronald and
Kristen. Your 3 year terms begin this March.
Twenty people were nominated for the 55+ group and seven accepted, so we will hold an election at the
Masses the weekend of January 24-25, 2015 to choose two new members, one man and one woman, for

MARCH FOR LIFE—JANUARY 22, 2015
Holy Name Parish and Immaculate Conception Parish, New Germany will be sponsoring a bus to the March
for Life in Washington D.C. on Thursday, January 22, 2015.
March for Life 2015 marks the 42nd year of legalized abortion in our country, and the procedure has cost the
lives of over 56 million fellow citizens.
“Since the first century, the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion. This teaching has
not changed and remains unchangeable.” - Catechism of the Catholic Church
We encourage all people of our parish who are physically able to consider attending the March for Life to pray
and witness to the Right to Life for all, as we are all God’s children, created by Him, made in His image.
The bus will be leaving from New Germany between 7:00-7:15 AM and returning that night around 10:00PM.
For more information or to reserve a seat, please call Ann Poole at 472-8584.

Washington, D.C.
Before I formed you in my womb, I knew you. - Jer 1:5
At the origin of every human life there is not something haphazard or chance, but a loving plan of God.
~Pope Benedict XVI
