Join in our Mission!
Immaculate Conception Catholic Church celebrates the Eucharist and proclaims the gospel- in worship through our love of God and for each other and with our ministry to the marginalized.

Theme: From Little to Large Tree
The tree comes from a little seed as we read in the gospel, or a small shoot as we read from the first reading. This is how the kingdom of God develops in us: it begins like the little seed, the Word of God. It is not loud/noisy, not showy, but it grows, it produces fruit and transforms us. With this parable Jesus wants to emphasize the difference between the smallness of the beginning and the greatness of the results. The message of this parable is: the kingdom of God comes into the heart of a person as a little seed. It seems insignificant, and easy to destroy. But Jesus assures us that in spite of insignificance, it will grow beyond our wildest imagination. The second reading shows the culmination of this. At the end of our lives we will see the person we have become. The day will mark the beginning of new lives with Christ.
