Seven Sisters Apostolate

Ladies, do you enjoy spending time with Our Sacramental Lord? Are you looking for ways to be a channel to allow God’s graces to flow into our parish? Do you feel called to pray for priests? If so, please check out the Seven Sisters Apostolate at sevensistersapostolate.org and prayerfully consider participating. Parishioner Wendy Babiak has received permission to begin the apostolate at Immaculate Conception, and she needs 5 more sisters, and several alternates (who may be ladies or gentlemen). Contact her at (607)745-8627 or wendybabiak@gmail.com.


Light Weigh Returns

Would you like to attain peace with food? Light Weigh One King (LWOK) is a 12-week Scriptural course dealing with spiritual growth while tackling weight loss. Light weigh is based on Catholic Bible Study, readings, prayer, reflection and response. Since the program’s inception over 15 years ago, Light Weigh has helped many who have struggled with weight loss and other addictive habits. If God is calling you to be contemplative in action, then wheat are you waiting for?! Our group begins again this fall, commencing September 14th. Contact Pat Ober for further information at 273-5277 or pober@me.com.


PARISH COOKBOOK

We will be collecting recipes over the summer for our new parish cookbook. There will be a box in the back of the church for the collection. In the fall we will be submitting them to a publisher and anticipate the books to be ready just before Thanksgiving. They will be here for holiday gift giving. Fr. Chumo promised to bring some of his family favorites from Kenya when her returns. We hope to see your recipe in print in our new parish cookbook. For more information, or to volunteer to help, contact Shirley Engman (607-277-4357 -orsayankee@gmail.com)


Sacristy HAS a new look

Thanks to the giving of time and talent to some wonderful volunteers, the Sacristy has a complete new look. Items have been sorted and organized and it has a new fresh coat of beautiful blue paint. The generosity of our volunteers is truly a blessing to this Parish! If you haven’t already seen the “New and Improved” Sacristy, be sure to look in next time you are in Church.
