ICC NEWSLETTER - January 3, 2020
Dear Parishioners and Friends,
As vacations end, schools reopen, and college students (and their laundry) return to campus, many of us will breathe a

Just like you, as parish life returns to normal, we will miss the quiet moments we had to plan and organize, but we will be happy to hear your voices on the phone, and to see your smiling faces at the door - and of course, at Mass.
This New Year we're starting off with something new and exciting for our
. That will be followed by BINGO, and finally a big Mardi Gras blow out for the members of our Parish Ministries. Here is a look at what’s ahead.
