Welcome to the Immaculate Conception Parish Website
Parish Lenten Giving 2014
Throughout the Lenten season we will be turning our hearts to God in penance and prayer and to our neighbors in charity by means of our almsgiving, all in preparation for Easter.
Immaculate Conception parish is known for its selfless care and compassion for others, especially the poor. There are many individuals and families who are struggling to pay heating bills, pay their rent, provide food for their tables and clothe themselves and their families. Our Lenten Giving is aimed at meeting defined needs within our own community. Your prayers and gifts will be greatly appreciated. If you have any questions; please contact Martha McCook, at (508) 460-3401.
First week of Lent Mayor’s Charity Relief Fund
The Mayor’s Charity Relief Fund provides emergency assistance to individuals and families who are struggling to pay for heat during this long, harsh New England winter.
Please make checks payable to the Mayor’s Charity Relief Fund.
Please place your gifts in the locked “Turkey Box” in the entryway of the Upper Church.
Stations of the Cross
We will be praying the Lenten Stations of the Cross every week during Lent. Join us at 6:00pm every Friday evening in the upper church. As we pray and meditate on Our Lord's suffering and death, we grow deeper in our understanding of the Eternal Sacrifice Christ made for us.
ABSTINENCE: Catholics over 14 years of age are bound to the obligations of abstinence. Abstinence is to be observed on Ash Wednesday and the Fridays of Lent. On days of abstinence, meat may not be used at all.
FAST: Catholics over 18 and up to the beginning of their sixtieth year are bound to the obligation of fasting. Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are the days of fasting. On these days, only one full meal is allowed. Two other meatless meals, sufficient to maintain strength, may be taken according to each one's needs, but together they should not equal another full meal. Eating between meals is not permitted, but liquids, including milk and fruit juices are allowed.
