Immaculate Conception Catholic Community

308 Florence Ave. Florence, WI

Father Robert Chinnapan is our interim pastor.  He is serving the communities of St. Mary in Florence,

St Joan of Arc in Goodman and

St. Stanislaus-Kostka in Armstrong Creek.

EUCHARISTIC ADORATION will take place on Thursdays from 4:30 pm—5:20 pm, with Benediction.  The Sacrament of Reconciliation will also be available during this time.  You're invited to stop and pray, spend time with our Lord who loves you, and just be in His Presence.  This is an excellent time to pray for family and friends, for healing, or perhaps even vocations to the priesthood and religious life!

RISING IN FAITH!  BISHOP’S APPEAL 2021 . . . On February 6th and 7th, we kicked off the 2021 Bishop’s Appeal, a stewardship opportunity for each of us to reach out to thousands of people in search of Jesus' love!  Each gift given supports the ministries of the Diocese of Green Bay which serve our parishes, Catholic schools and communities.  Your gift truly helps bring the heart and hands of Christ to our children, young adults, families and neighbors here in northeastern Wisconsin.  To make a gift today, contact the parish office, visit the Bishop’s Appeal website at www.catholicfoundationgb.org/give, or call Tammy Danz toll-free at 877-500-3580, ext. 8123.  We kindly ask that all donations be mailed directly to the diocese at PO Box 23001, Green Bay, WI, 54305-3001.  (Checks payable to CF/Bishop’s Appeal).  Look for more information on the bulletins tab each week!

COVID-19 UPDATE . . . On Monday, October 5, 2020, Bishop David Ricken reinstated the dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass in the diocese until further notice.  We will continue to celebrate the Mass every weekend for those who are able to attend and are willing to strictly follow the proper health protocols.  During this time of increased infection, our parish will be even more vigilant about following the diocesan guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID 19 and allow as many people as is safe to come to Mass without fear of infection.  The wearing of masks is mandatory at Masses.

 

Safe Environment:  Each person has an inherent dignity as a beloved child of God.  The Diocese of Green Bay is committed to providing a safe environment in our parishes, in our schools, in our faith formation programs, and in all of our ministries, especially those that serve children, youth and individuals at risk.  If you want to learn more about the programs and resources available through the Diocese of Green Bay to live out this commitment, please visit:  http://www.gbdioc.org/ministry-formation-portal/safe-environment.html.

 COVID-19 PANDEMIC:   While the parish has received many generous donations throughout the past weeks during the shutdown, and we applied with many other small businesses for the Payroll Protection Program, I did want to make you aware that the diocese has made available to all parishes an on-line giving option during these days of parish shutdowns, so people may continue to support the work of their parishes.  You can make a one-time online gift, or setup a recurring (weekly, monthly) gift that will be made and then forwarded on to the parish of your choosing.  To access the online giving page through the Diocesan Catholic Foundation, simply visit https://www.givecentral.org/appeals-form-registration/acp5e7d16110ebfd/user/guest.  

   Thank you for your consideration of our parish needs during this difficult time for us all!  Gifts may also be dropped off at the church using your envelopes at St Mary’s any weekday morning, or left in the mailbox outside the main entrance.
