March 31st we start with Mass at 5:30pm, follow with a simple, but delicious, supper. We end with our final Holy Hour.
HOLY WEEK THOUGHTS AND SCHEDULE:
The weekend of March 28/29 is the Celebration of Palm/Passion Sunday which begins Holy Week, the most sacred week of the year for Christians. Holy Week should not be a normal week for any of us.. no "business as usual". The focus of our faith is the passion, death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus, the event we celebrate during Holy Week. We live in a secular culture which is not attuned to this...we have to make a concerted effort to "tune out" the world around us for a few short days....it's all about God's undying, unconditional love for us. It's the GOOD NEWS. May we make a special effort to make this Holy Week the most sacred and holiest week of the year.

Welcome to Our Parish
Our Mission at Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish is to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ and to praise His name, by being a Christ-centered, welcoming, unified community. Called to holiness, we celebrate the love of God through prayer and worship, the Eucharist and other sacraments, catechesis, evangelization and service to all. Always His people, we strive to be good stewards of our time, talent and treasure.
We ask each parishioner or household to register in the parish. To do this, please call the Parish office. Parish registration allows us to serve you better because we are able to maintain your sacramental records or individual pastoral needs.
