About Our Pastor

During these days of uncertainty, Immaculate Conception parish remains very much alive and we will continue to do our best, with the help of the Holy Spirit, to minister to your needs.  Included below is a Q&A of items that you will want to consider.  The parish will continue to record Sunday Mass and other prayers which will remain available on our website

Q. Can I bring communion to a family member even if I am not a trained minister of holy Communion? A. Yes. If you have returned to Mass and would like to bring Holy Communion to a neighbor or family member who is unable to attend, please arrange with Fr. Jim or Laurie Muth in advance so we might provide you with a pyx to carry the sacred Host and an appropriate prayer book.

Q. Is the office open that I might request a Mass intention or for general questions? A. Yes and No. Just as your day to day life has changed as a result of COVID-19, the day to day life of the parish has changed, as well. The office is not currently open, however, you may leave a message on the church phone and someone will return your call.

Q. When will we resume our weekday Mass schedule?  A. Our weekday Mass schedule has temporarily changed. Wednesday evening Mass will continue to be at 6:30pm with the addition of Adoration and confessions on Wednesday from 5:15-6:15pm. We do need committed Adorers to stay with Jesus during that hour. If you are interested in committing to 1 Wed/month or more, please let me know.

Beginning in July, we will offer Mass on Monday evening at 6:30pm, as well.  

There are currently no morning Masses or Communion Services. Friday Adoration will resume at a later date.

Q. When will we resume parish life activities? Activities such as Zumba, knitting, Marthas Movers are currently on hold. Impact Youth Group, Alanon and Narcotics Anonymous may resume as long as they follow the 6′ social distance rule and clean their space when they leave. Call the office or the ministry coordinator for specific inquiries.

How can we keep our faith strong during times like this?  Do not be afraid!!  We must remember that throughout history, God never abandoned His people:

  • When the Jewish people were enslaved in Egypt – God rescued them.
  • When Israel was devastated by Babylon. When Jerusalem and the temple were destroyed and the people were exiled in a foreign country, God never abandoned them.  When external signs of God’s presence (like the temple) were gone and the people felt alone, God upheld them.
  • At the Cross, when all seemed lost, Jesus died … but three days later he rose from the dead!
  • When the disciples were ridiculed, tortured and put to death, a new Church was being born on the faith of those early martyrs.
  • Throughout our history, the Catholic Church has survived persecution, disease, famine, and abuse.

God is with us!  Do not be afraid.  We are all in this together!

Please use this time to draw close to Jesus in prayer, silence, reflection and meditation.  Learn to hear His voice. If you have children, please pray with them and exercise patience.  All this isolation and social distancing will pass … and we can become better, stronger and more faithful if we use this time to grow closer to God.  We are never alone – the Saints and Angels accompany us!  God will never abandon us!

“Obey my voice, I will be your God and you will be my people. And walk in all the way that I command you, that it may be well with you.”Jer 7:23

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.” John 10:27
