Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.)

Once again this year Immaculate Conception Parish will facilitate the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.) for adults who wish to participate in a process of formation to receive the sacraments of the Catholic Church during the next Easter season. Adult non-Christians can prepare for full initiation into the Catholic Church through Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist (Communion) at the Easter Vigil. Adult non-Catholic Christians can prepare to be received into the Catholic Church and make Confirmation and Eucharist at Easter. Adult baptized Catholics who have not yet received Confirmation and/or Eucharist can also prepare for them at Easter. Also, adult baptized Catholics who wish to complete initiation can prepare to receive Confirmation at Pentecost next year. If you or someone you know wishes to inquire into this process, please contact Fr. Bill McLaughlin at the rectory office at (718) 728-1613. Weekly sessions of prayer, study, and sharing the Scriptures will begin in early October. Also, the R.C.I.A. is being offered in Spanish (contact Deacon Elkin Tamayo) and for high school age young adults (contact Mrs. Marylyn Crum). All inquiries can be made at the Rectory Office.



Miraculous Medal Novena

The evening Novena of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal will begin again starting on Monday, September 17th at 5:00PM in the Upper Church. The Novena consists of the Holy Rosary and Evening Prayer, both prayed before the Blessed Sacrament. All are welcome to partake in this wonderful prayer in thanksgiving for all the graces given to us by Our Blessed Mother!



Catholic War Veterans Presents Special Movie Screening

The Catholic War Veterans of Astoria Post 1 are presenting a Special Pre-Release Preview of the movie Indivisible scheduled to be released nationally in October, 2018 by Carmel Communications, the same studio that produced Mel Gibsonís Hacksaw Ridge. The movie will be shown on Wednesday, September 19th at 7:00PM in the Lower Church. Admission is free! All are welcome to experience this great film that depicts how PTSD affects an individual, their whole family, and especially the impact on members of the Clergy and the soldiers under their care.



Special Collection for Flood Victims of South India

The southern state of Kerala in India is suffering its worst monsoon flooding in a century, with more than one million people displaced, and more than 400 reported deaths in the past weeks. Weeks of heavy rainfall have caused dams to open their floodgates, triggered landslides in the mountains, and swamped the coastal regions of Kerala. Only in recent days have floodwaters begun to recede, allowing more access for aid workers and rescuers to reach the devastated areas. In an effort to give aid and support to our brothers and sisters in need in India, Bishop DiMarzio has asked every parish in the Diocese to take up a voluntary second collection in September. We have chosen to take this collection the weekend of September 22nd and 23rd. The monies collected will be sent by our Diocese directly to the effected Dioceses and religious communities in India. Please be as generous as possible to help those suffering in those regions in India. We thank everyone for their support, both financial and spiritual, as the people of India begin to rebuild their lives.
