ICC NEWSLETTER - October 25, 2019
Opportunities To Help... Please Read to the End
As October comes to an end, our parish is entering one of its two busiest seasons. This Sunday we will begin our
nnual Thanksgiving Food Drive for the St. Peter/St. Denis Food Pantry
. This coming Friday we observe the
Solemnity of All Saints, a Holy Day of Obligation
. And on November 5, we all have an opportunity to begin a
Marian Consecration to the Blessed Mother
- a spiritual response to everything that has been occurring in our Church. Please read through to the end, and help out where you can. For more information, make sure to download the images and documents attached to this email.
His Eminence, Cardinal Dolan, is offering an opportunity to bring to our Archdiocesan family something of a spiritual conversion, a light within the darkness of these troubled times.
All are invited to consider joining in
consecrating themselves to the Blessed Virgin Mary on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception
Through the goodness of the office of young adult outreach we have received 160 copies of the consecration book,
“33 Days to Morning Glory”
They are in the vestibule, and you may take one home. These consecration books explain everything you need to do. Please take one home and use it with your family.
The 33 Day Consecration Process begins November 5, 2019.

It's that time again. Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and once again we will be holding our Thanksgiving Food Drive to benefit the CRS food bank at St. Peter/St. Denis Church in Yonkers, NY.
Fliers will be available in the vestibule with a list of everything we need.
In an effort to cut down on waste, this year we are requesting you make your donations in any

That's it for today, but before you go...
There are only 60 days until Christmas!!!
That's as much as I'm going to say about it for now, but wait until you see what we this year's "Breakfast With Santa" is going to be like. But there will be a lot more happening before that... think Halloween, All Souls, All Saints, Veteran's Day, Interfaith Thanksgiving, Thanksgiving, Advent...
Sincerely Yours in Christ,
Immaculate Conception Church (Irvington-on-Hudson)
