Happy New Year! As it is the beginning of the year, I would like to dedicate this email to a few, parish life and business reminders. Let's get to it...
2020 Donation Reports: Via WeShare
If you make your donations to the parish online using WeShare,
! You chose the simplest and most flexible way of supporting ICC!

more and more parish events, raffles and other payments taking place online

2020 Donation Reports: Via "In-Basket"
With 2020 now firmly in the rearview mirror, the office can begin to prepare reports of parishioner "in-basket" donations from last year. Please remember that as in past years,
you must contact the office to request your donation summary;
hey are not mailed out automatically.
If would like a copy of your report, you may request it by:
Sending an email to
Calling the office at 591-7480.
**New This Year**
- Use the buttons below to request an email containing your online donation summary.
We can only provide you with an in-basket donation report if you make your donations using the parish envelope system, or if you make your donation using a check with your name and address on it
. If your preferred method of making a donation is at Mass in the basket, please note that it really is in your best interest to use our parish envelopes. This will ensure that all your donations, cash or check, are recorded and reported.
Donation reports will begin to be sent out during the third week of January.
Please click the button below if you would like to request your "In-Basket Donation Summary" via email when it is ready. (WeShare donors receive their reports automatically.)

Parish Financial Report
Despite your incredible generosity to the parish throughout 2020, and to its Be Kind, ICC Feeds, Thanksgiving, Giving Tree, and Hats, Scarves, Gloves and Socks drives, our parish's donations have been impacted this year.
Later this month we will include our annual Financial Statement in our bulletin for you to review. However, I must share with you that
if ICC experiences another year like this one, we may begin to need to make cut backs to events and activities,
and this would be devastatin
g to us. If you were not able to make a donation to the Parish during 2020, or for Christmas, please consider making a donation today. Any donation is appreciated, and the only person who will know what you donated is you, so that you may claim it as a deduction. Remember, the simplest way to make donations to the parish, no matter what amount, is via WeShare.
Did You Hear?!
This week the world was surprised by the news that
the top current Apple Podcast in the United States is "T
in A Year by Fr. Mike Schmitz".
You read that correctly. The top Apple Podcast features
a Roman Catholic Priest - and it hit number one just one week after launching!
It is such big news, that it has even been mentioned in foreign press. Now, ask yourself this question...
Of all of the podcasts in the United States, with all the terrible and troubling news that we have had to endure during 2020...
how did a Roman Catholic Priest make it to number 1?
You know the answer.
Keep the Faith alive at home. Don't lose it. Come to Mass. Don't stop teaching your children and grandchildren.
Do not give up.
Our Faith is a gift, and it WILL help us through the worst of times. Fight for it.
That is it for today. The Mass for this Sunday will be posted tomorrow, and the readings are downloadable below. Thank you for your Faith. Thank you for your support. Keep the Faith, and remember to pray for your parish family.
Sincerely Yours in Christ,
Understanding these are very difficult times, please consider making an online donation to our parish. We know that some of you may not be comfortable making your donations online. If so, feel free to mail in your envelopes to the Rectory. Thank you for your generosity.
