ICC NEWSLETTER - February 1, 2019
It’s February! I bet many of you share Bill Murray’s sentiment, because it sure does feel like this winter will never end, but it will. And one day, Tom Brady won’t make it into the Super Bowl. Maybe. On to the news.
What makes ICC's family BINGO so great is that there is something for everyone. Anyone can play, there are special BINGO games for children, smiles and laughter, Confirmandi helping out, and cash prizes! Plus Mom and Dad don't need to cook or clean up. What more could anyone want. Download the flier at the end of this email for more details.
Saturday, February 9 at 6PM (first game starts around 6:15PM) in the Parish Gymnasium.
One day, we will all be asked what we did. How will you
It was a difficult week. This week many of you did not remain silent. You called, wrote and stopped in to ask what we can do about
. If you are opposed to infanticide, if you are opposed to the lives of infants being terminated seconds before they are going to be delivered, if you are opposed to the murder of millions upon millions of human beings, speak up – call, write, pray. It's LIFE, not an "option".
Here is one way to end your silence.
to contact your legislators and make your thoughts known, or visit the
NYS Catholic Conference
for more information.
A Weekend of Tea
The A & R Society will host
Afternoon (and morning!) Tea after every Mass on March 2nd and 3rd
, to recruit ladies of the parish as new members! If you aren’t sure what the Society does, or if you think all they do is “clean the Church” (
you would be wrong, by the way
), this is your opportunity to hear about all the wonderful things they have done over the year. Put it on your calendar, and make sure to stop by.
Prayer for Reparation
Beginning this Sunday, we will end each Mass with a
Prayer of Reparation for Sin
, for those who committed, received, aided, encouraged or abetted the horror of abortion, as well as for all of us who live in a society which condones it. It will be available to you in the vestibule next weekend, as well as printed on the cover of our bulletin. We encourage you to pray it every day. The murder of millions of innocent lives has not gone unnoticed by our Patroness, whose “Yes” became the most important unplanned pregnancy of all time.
Each year our Parish is honored to have parishioners named Grand Marshal and/or Aides of the
Sleepy Hollow St. Patrick’s Parade
. Each year our Parish is woefully under represented at it. Have you ever attended it? Have you ever walked in it? Sure it’s cold out, but it is also so much fun –
and you don’t have to be Irish to march
If you would like to walk, meet the crew
on Main Street between 12:30 and 12:45PM
(you can't miss the ICC Banner), or call the Rectory. We will put you in touch with our organizers.
This year our own Isabel Milano will be Grand Marshal, and Detective Mike Toolan will be an Aide. A well-deserved congratulations to them both!
One last note. The Greenburgh Hebrew center will be holding its
Annual Super Bowl Blood Drive this Sunday from 8:30AM until 1:00 PM
Please download the flyer for more information.
Have a wonderful weekend. See you on Sunday.
Sincerely Yours in Christ,
Greenburgh Hebrew Center Blood Drive
