The children and teachers are celebrating the month of October which is dedicated to the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Mother.
Each week they are reciting a decade of the Rosary while meditating on corresponding Mysteries, namely Joyful Mysteries in the 1st and 2nd grades, Luminous in the 4th, Sorrowful in the 5th and the Glorious in the 7th & 8th. In this way, the entire Rosary will be completed by the end of the month. Families are encouraged to continue the devotion in their homes. We also welcome a new catechist to our program, Nancy Brucker, who is teaching our 4th grade class. The parish thanks her for answering the call to the catechetical ministry and asks for God’s blessing throughout the year.
We are in need of catechists and substitute catechists for the coming year. This is such an important ministry in our parish. If you can answer the call, please contact Fr. Mirek at 845-331-0846 or the Coordinator, Karen Wereszynski at 845-339-5685.
MONTH OF OCTOBER
October is Respect life month and month of the Holy Rosary.
Rosary & Litany of the Blessed Mother will be recited every day at 7:40 AM before Mass and Thursdays at 6:40 PM before mass. Please pray the Rosary at home with your family. With so many tragic events happening throughout the world, mankind needs to come before God and ask for forgiveness, mercy and help.
Sacramental candle dates are available. Please contact the
rectory or choice of candle/dates can be placed in an
envelope and placed in the offertory basket.
Candle offerings $10.00.
YEAR OF ST. JOSEPH
December 8, 2020 - December 8, 2021
Holy Saint Joseph, guardian of Jesus Christ, husband of the Blessed Mother and patron of the Catholic Church, we pray to you for guidance this “Year of Saint Joseph” proclaimed by Pope Francis. You have showed us by your loving ways, the value of work and the joys of fatherhood. By teaching God’s Son to do the will of His Father you have given us the path to do the same. By your example, you have encouraged us to accept others as they are, without exception. To you Saint Joseph, our Heavenly Father entrusted his only Son, Jesus Christ to your tender care and upbringing. In you, our Blessed Mother, Mary placed her love and trust. Through your mentoring, Jesus Christ became a man. We praise you and ask of you to defend our loved ones from every evil and guide us with your grace and mercy. Amen.

AN ACT OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Blessed Sacrament.
I love You above all things, and I desire You in my soul.
Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.
As though You were already there, I embrace You and unite myself wholly to You; permit not that I should ever be separated from You.
A reminder to all parishioners, that during this time and beyond, you can stay connected to Immaculate Conception through Facebook, our website www.immaculateconceptionkingston.com or Flocknotes https://ickingston.flocknote.com
As always, if there is a need for a Priest, Father Mirek is available. Please call the rectory (845) 331-0846 should you have a need.
