Flocknote introduces a smarter way for parishes to text message and email their members. As a Flocknote church, we will be able to reach all of you at a moment's notice, in your inboxes and via text message. There’s nothing for you
to download or pick up after church.
By organizing our church into different groups and ministries on Flocknote, we can get information to exactly who needs it at the right time! Plus, you will be able to reply directly to any email or text message you receive via
Flocknote, vote in polls, RSVP to events, and more! Interested?
Immaculate Conception will be offering Ascension Press' newest bible study in January 2020: "Romans: The Gospel of Salvation." The 8-week study begins on January 5 and ends on February 23.
This study will cover the Catholic teaching on salvation, how to explain salvation to non-Christians, what is required for salvation—faith or works, what Paul really means by “works” not leading to salvation, how Christ’s death changed our relationship with God, and how we can enter more deeply into Christ.
Click on the link below to register online. This way you pay Ascension Press directly, and they ship your study materials right to you. I am able to see who registers online, so I'll have proof of your registration.
There is also a link below to a registration form that you can download and print.
REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS DECEMBER 13, 2019!
