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.
