I would like to thank you for your continued patience, kindness, gentleness, flexibility, hope, and, most importantly, your understanding.
The staff of Immaculate Conception Church is working diligently to create a plan and appropriate guidelines for the safe reopening of our offices and the resumption of our prayer and worship services. With guidelines from the CDC, the State, and Bishop Luis Rafael, we are keeping the sanctity of life and the dignity of the liturgy in the forefront of our preparations. More information on these measures will be shared in the near future.
As we continue to work towards our goal of gathering in person, I would like to invite you and your household to undertake a small, creative, project for me. Brother Mickey McGrath, OSFS, has generously made available a selection of “Be-Attitudes” coloring sheets that are currently linked on the main page of our parish website. I encourage you to choose one that speaks to you, print it out, color it, and then mail it to me at the parish office. You are invited to sign your name on the bottom of your completed work. I would like to display the colored images in the Church as a vibrant and joyful way to welcome everyone back.
Please mail them to: Fr. John McGee, OSFS 6650 Carolina Beach Road Wilmington, NC 28412
These have been trying and troubling times for everyone, but we must remember what St. Francis de Sales has told us: “The same everlasting Father who cares for you today will care for you tomorrow and every day. Either he will shield you from suffering or give you unfailing strength to bear it. Be at peace then and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginings.”
In the spirit of St. Francis de Sales, Fr. John McGee, OSFS Pastor
