A Message From the Pastor
Re: Friars Away from July 29th to August 2nd
As many of you are aware, six of the seven U.S. provinces of the Order of Friars Minor, including Holy Name Province (the province of the friars here at Immaculate Conception parish), have voted on restructuring into one coast-to-coast province, which will hopefully be realized in four years.
In preparation for this exciting project the provinces are holding what is known as a Chapter of Mats (named after the first chapter held by Saint Francis when all the friars brought mats to Assisi to sleep on) from Monday, July 29th to Friday, August 2nd in Denver, CO. This gathering will be an opportunity for the friars from different provinces to get to know one another and to strengthen our fraternal bonds.
Since all of the friars here at IC will be going, please be advised that there will be no daily Mass those days, though the office will be open as normal.
During these five special days, please pray for all the friars of the U.S. as we embark on this challenging and life-giving renewal effort.
