PARISH MINISTRIES
  Building and Grounds
  Committee Could Use
  Some Helping Hands

As a follow-up to the excellent Ministries event on April 12, we will be highlighting the many ways parishioners can volunteeer their time and talent and, in turn, enrich their spiritual lives. The first in this series is the Building and Grounds Committee.  


In preparation for Immaculate Conception's year-long Sesquicentennial celebration beginning in October, Building and Grounds will be involved in a number of upgrading projects this year including -- repaving the parking lot and painting the interior of the church --
that will be competively bid. 

For smaller projects, the committee is looking for parishioners to donate their time and talent; all materials will be provided. These projects include repainting the steps to the side doors, window replacement, light fixture replacement and caulking. With enough volunteersm most of these projects can be completed in under four hours on a Saturday. These tasks do not require someone who is a skilled carpenter. If you can help, please contact Vincent McCafferty at Svpcafferty@msn.com or 267-246-0740.

Meals & Soup Are Needed; Help Fill Freezer 
The Aid For Friends (AFF) program led by the Corporal Works of Mercy Committee is low on meals stored in the rectory freezer. There is also a great need for soup. Supplies will be available after the April 18-19 Masses and are also kept in the freezer room. AFF always gets low on meals in the summer months, so it would be very much appreciated if parishioners help build up stock by making extra meals.
