The Mission of Immaculate Conception Parish and St. Louise Chapel is to build a faith community that worships God and supports one another as a loving family that lives and teaches the message of Jesus Christ, and that reflects through service the presence of the Holy Spirit as revealed in the Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church.

Parish Mission

Advent Mission with Fr. Mark Prill

We will have an Advent Mission led by Fr. Prill that will run from Sunday, December 8th to Thursday, December 12th.

 On Sunday, we will gather at 5pm for a Potluck Dinner in the Community Room at 5:30pm.  Please bring a dish to pass. At 7pm, we will then move to the church for Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and Fr. Prill’s first talk.  It will be on Mary and the model Christian and her relevancy in our lives as Catholics.  He will talk about Mary as the model for us as a follower of Jesus Christ.  It will include her devotion to her son, her humility and her “yes” to God.  Then, he will relate all of her to our lives as Catholics.  The evening will conclude with Benediction.

 On Monday, Fr. Prill will begin at 7pm in church with Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament.  His talk will cover the challenges to our faith how to overcome them, including personal challenges we may have due to sin, challenges from world, and the challenges as a Catholic (i.e. no one likes what we stand for and briefly touch on sex abuse scandal).  Then, he will talk about the boldness needed today as a Catholic, being that witness, importance of Confession and trust in the Lord.  The evening will conclude with Benediction.

 On Tuesday, Fr. Prill will begin at 7pm in church with Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament.  He will discuss renewing our friendship with Christ, parish renewal and the Apostolate/Evangelization.  Fr. Prill will talk about getting back to basics - “Catholic boot camp”.  He will also cover topics like Confession, Eucharist Adoration, The Most Holy Rosary, and the other spiritual weapons the we have from Christ to face the challenges of the day.  He hopes to give practical advice for personal spiritual growth, so that we can help to make the parish a shining example of the Catholic Faith around the county.  The evening will conclude with Benediction.

 On Wednesday, Fr. Prill will have morning Mass with the School.  He will also gather with the Religious Education students at 6pm.  He was going to talk about his vocation story and challenge them to live out their faith.  In in other words, if one kid can do it from Lapeer, so can they.  There will be a brief gathering in church after Religious Education at 7pm.  There will be Exposition and Benediction with a consecration to Our Lady.  (Fr. Prill has to be on the road at a reasonable hour for the two-hour drive to Erie, MI.)

 

Finally, on Thursday, we will have Holy Mass in the Evening for Our Lady of Guadalupe at 7pm with a gathering afterwards in the Community Room.  An image of Our Lady of Guadalupe was donated to us.  I am hoping to have it framed and then dedicated that evening at Mass. The gathering afterwards will be a potluck style dinner.  Please bring Mexican/Latin American dishes to pass, since Our Lady is the Patroness of the Americas.

 Please RSVP for the Sunday, December 8th Potluck by December 5th and the Thursday, December 12th Potluck by Wednesday, December 11th.  You may leave a message on my voicemail or via email.  This will ensure that we have enough food.  Please, you may attend the talks even if you don’t RSVP.

“The Crown” and the Primacy of Grace

Like, I daresay, most of the English-speaking world, these past couple of years I’ve been watching episodes of The Crown, the beautifully filmed, marvelously written program on the life and times of Queen Elizabeth II. The series deals with the psychological dynamics within the royal family as well as with the cultural changes and political challenges that the Queen has faced in the course of her long reign. But what has been, at least to me, most surprising has been the insightful and sympathetic way in which it has addressed issues of faith. Especially in the first season, we saw the fairly frequent conflicts between Elizabeth’s devotion to her family and her role as head of the Church of England. In season two, there was a deeply affecting episode on the visit of Billy Graham to the UK in the mid-fifties. We saw that, despite reticence regarding the American evangelist…

“The Crown” y el primado de la gracia

Me atrevo a decir que, como la mayor parte del mundo angloparlante, estos dos últimos años he estado viendo episodios de The Crown, el programa maravillosamente filmado y escrito sobre la vida y los tiempos de la reina Isabel II. La serie trata de la dinámica psicológica de la familia real, así como de los cambios culturales y los retos políticos a los que se ha enfrentado la reina en el transcurso de su largo reinado. Pero lo que ha sido, al menos para mí, lo más sorprendente ha sido la manera perspicaz y comprensiva en que ha abordado las cuestiones de la fe. Especialmente en la primera temporada, vimos los conflictos bastante frecuentes entre la devoción de Isabel a su familia y su papel como cabeza de la Iglesia de Inglaterra. En la segunda temporada, hubo un episodio profundamente conmovedor de la visita de Billy Graham al Reino Unido…

A Talk on the Hill

A couple of weeks ago, I had the distinct privilege of addressing an audience of Senators, Representatives, and Capitol Hill staffers in a beautiful room at the Library of Congress. This event was made possible by two Congressmen, Rep. Tom Suozzi of New York, a Democrat, and Rep. John Moolenaar of Michigan, a Republican. Both had seen videos of the speeches I had given at Facebook and Google Headquarters and wanted something similar for those who work in government. At the outset of my talk, I specified that I would not be addressing the hot button issues that so often dominate discussions of religion and politics. I was quick to point out that this is not because I think those questions are unimportant or that they shouldn’t eventually be addressed. But I insisted that the rush to those matters around which there is radical polarization effectively precludes…
