Financial Update

There is an update on our ongoing financial crisis.  The good news is that we have been able to reduce the annual deficit by another $24, 000.  We began with around $120,000 of deficit, and now we are nearly half of that with $66,000 of deficit.  We will also be installing thermostat guards and limiting their use almost entirely to save money on utilities, which are our greatest expense.  While the weather is still cold, please dress warmly for Mass, woman may keep their hats on during Mass.

To clarify our parish’s financial situation, given the current level of financial support, this parish cannot sustain its facilities’ maintenance or support a priest.  Failure to bridge the deficit gap would incur tremendous annual debt.  Also, parishes that cannot support a priest become missions of larger, sustainable parishes, which could happen to Immaculate Conception under our next Bishop.  

We need to pray, fast, and work to resolve this crisis.  


Did you know?

Do you know the 5 minimum requirements are for being a practicing Catholic?

The Precepts of the Church

  1. Attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation and rest from servile labor. There are 6 Holy Days of Obligation in the USA:
    Jan. 1, Ascension, Aug. 15, Nov. 1, Dec. 8, and Dec. 25.
    Only Nov. 1 and Dec. 8th are not on Sunday this year.
  2. Confess your sins at least once a year.  If anyone is aware of mortal sin (grave matter, full knowledge, deliberate consent) Confession should be done immediately.
  3. Receive the Eucharist at least once a year during the Easter Season.
  4. Observe the days of fasting and abstinence.  Fasting, 1 meal per day, is for Catholics 18-60. All Fridays of the year are days of penance and abstinence from meat in the Diocese of Tulsa, established by the 1983 Code of Canon law and Bishop Slattery. Abstinence from meat is for Catholics 14-death.
  5. Help provide for the needs of the Church.

Merry Christmas and
Happy Feast of the Baptism of the Lord!

JordanRiver-ChristBaptizedSite
This is the site at the Jordan River where Christ was baptized, the sacrament of Baptism was instituted, and the Holy Trinity was revealed for the first time in human history.

This is also where Jews entered the promised land, and where Elijah was taken up to to Heaven.

It’s still Christmas Season, so Merry Christmas!
