ICC NEWSLETTER: March 29, 2019
Sacraments, Soup, Seder, Spreads
I thought Lent was supposed to be a quiet time of Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving. Well, it's been all that and more this year so far. There is so much to review, that we are going to cut straight to the chase.
(Please make sure to read this email through to the end. Don't forget to enable the images for complete information.)
Although main stream media has done its best to downplay it, there is a movie out today that is well worth seeing -
. It is the real story of one abortion clinic worker's experience, when she realized the true nature of the "health care" she was providing, and it is catching fire throughout the country. If you doubt what really happens at Planned Parenthood Centers across the United States, challenge yourself to watch it. Click below to view the trailer, and

FREE LENTEN ACTIVITIES FOR REGISTERED PARISHIONERS
Last week's newsletter featured two events taking place over the next few weeks. Here's the rundown with links to RSVP as needed:
Sunday, April 7 at 11AM in the Gym - Easter Egg Hunt and Breakfast with the Bunny:
Peter Cottontail will be here following the 1st Grade Mass at 10AM to supervise the event! All registered Parish Families are welcome to attend.
Friday, April 12 at 6:30PM in the Vic- Soup and Stations of the Cross:
Come have a meager, meatless meal, and then attend the Stations of the Cross. Fr. Roy and I will join you for dinner. It will be your opportunity to ask about anything you ever wanted to know about Lent.

Wednesday, April 17 at 7PM in the Gym - Passover Seder:
Last year's Seder boasted 60 people both receiving a lesson in what our Jewish brothers and sisters observe during Passover, and a delicious meal! Rabbi Jay Stein - one of the funniest people you will ever meet - will take us through it.

Altar & Rosary Communion Brunch
When it comes to breakfast, the ladies of the Altar and Rosary Society do not mess around. The Communion Brunch features - well - everything you love to eat at Brunch, in a beautiful setting. This year's speaker will be
William "Billy" Keenan
, a competitive triathlete who at the age of 46 became a quadriplegic... and who hasn't slowed down since. It will be an inspirational morning!
Tickets are $45/person
, and will be on sale after all the Masses this weekend and over the next few weeks It all happens
May 5th at 1:30PM, at the Knollwood Country Club
THE 2019 SPRING FLING
Tickets for this year's Spring Fling are now on sale! You can purchase them after all our Masses this weekend, at the Rectory, at Irvington Hardware (next week), and online, as well!

One final reminder. Everything our parish staff, volunteers, and Fr. Roy and I do are nothing without our Faith. Their sole purpose is to encourage your participation in the Sacraments, and to make them all possible. Please never forget that all this is meaningless without your attendance at Mass, and the reception of the Sacraments. That's what really matters.
Have a wonderful weekend. See you at Mass.
Sincerely Yours in Christ,
Immaculate Conception Church (Irvington-on-Hudson)
