Church Renovation Updates
The tile is almost done on the sanctuary. The carpeting on the stairs is almost done. The smaller side is already and it looks so nice. The lift part of the elevator was installed. The bathrooms are working with running water and a beautiful door. The stenciling is all complete with the final shell being painted under the choir loft. The Baptismal font will be placed directly underneath it. We have beautiful new lights hanging through out the church. The railing outside has been installed. The pews are getting installed but no picture. You will just have to wait on that view until the 16th. Everything is coming together. Do not forget that tomorrow is a Holy Day of Obligation in honor of our Church's namesake. Also, keep selling your raffle tickets! Have a great weekend!
The carpeting is looking good. She is working on laying carpet in the back of church going out to the landing. Sims Sounds is installing some of the sound system. The fans are installed in the confessionals. They are prepping the floor in Hansen Hall getting it ready for the carpet. We have doors on the bathrooms. They will be ready for Dec 16th.

Catholic Dumbledore’s Army01-20-2019Deacon Ed Wendt
Brandon Vogt, a top selling Catholic Author, has come out with a new video series and I believe our young people and you will find it interesting and quite intriguing. For the past five months, Brandon has been secretly working on a brand new, 5-part video series.
The series is titled: "Why it's Time for a Catholic Dumbledore's Army (and Why You Need to Join)"
Brandon informs us that He "sadly, came to realize most Catholics are in the same situation as Harry Potter and friends in the bestselling books:"READ MORE
IMMACULATE CONCEPTION EVENTS & ANNOUNCEMENTS
We are in need of Mass Intentions for Immaculate Conception Church. If you would like a special day of prayer for a loved one or for special intentions for yourself, please fill out a blue Mass Intention envelope in the back of church. Sundays fill up the fastest but we do need intentions for every Mass on Friday & Wednesdays also.
Immaculate Conception Fundraiser
Because Immaculate Conception was unable to hold a Fall Festival, we will be holding a raffle with all proceeds going to help with costs for the renovation. Tickets may be purchased before and after all masses or by getting a hold of Connie in the office.
The Church and the Parish Life Center locks were rekeyed a couple of weeks ago. If you have an old key, please throw it away. We do not want anyone breaking the new locks trying to open them with the old keys. If you need a new one, contact Conniein the office at 687-8418.

Diaconate Discernment Retreat
Feb 1 - Feb 2
Are you a man at least 35 years of age who feels a yearning to give yourself more radically to the service of God and the Church? Are you perhaps called to be a deacon? Talk to your pastor about attending the Diaconate Discernment Retreat to be held at St. Anthony Spirituality Center, and then call the Office for Ministries and Social Concerns at 608-791-0161. A new deacon formation class will begin in the fall of 2019 and attendance at the Discernment Retreat is a prerequisite. For more on the diaconate and the discernment retreat, visit www.diolc.org/diaconate.
Hearts Open Wide - High School Retreat at Mater Redemptoris House of Formation

Come join other high school women for a weekend retreat designed to help you come to a deeper understanding of God's call for your life. Join the Sisters in prayer, fellowship, activities, and Mass. Attendance does not imply that a girl is in the discernment process.
This weekend is just to find out what the life is all about while growing in prayer and having some fun.
