A MESSAGE FROM FATHER MONTY – Here is a prayer for you to say at a family gathering or when you visit the graves of your loved ones. Don’t forget that Memorial Day is, first and foremost, a day to honor our Nation’s war dead.

Let us remember those who have died in defense of our
Nation and for those who suffer most from war: the
homeless, the orphaned, the hungry, and the innocent…
Almighty God and Father, by the mystery of the cross, you have made us strong; by the sacrament of the resurrection you have sealed us as your own. Look kindly upon your servants, now freed from the bonds of mortality, and count them among your saints in heaven.
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord. Let perpetual light shine upon them.
May they rest in peace. Amen.
May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

MEMORIAL DAY - On Monday there will be a mass for Memorial Day at 8:30 a.m.

THE PARISH OFFICE IS CLOSED ON MONDAY, MAY 25 IN OBSERVANCE OF THE MEMORIAL DAY HOLIDAY.

THE FLOWERS AT THE ALTAR this Sunday are given to the Greater Glory of God and in memory of deceased Veterans of all wars and your loved ones. Thank you for your generous support of the 2015 Easter Flower collection!

CEMETERY NOTICE – Before you plant or place decorations on graves this Memorial Day, please consult the Immaculate Conception Cemetery regulations. The regulations are clearly posted in the parish cemetery. These regulations have been enacted to preserve the dignity of our parish cemetery and for the protection of cemetery employees.

CEMETERY ASSOCIATION MEETING – The Immaculate Conception Cemetery Association will have its annual meeting on Monday, June 8 at 7:00 p.m. at the cemetery mausoleum.

DIOCESAN ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS—Couples celebrating milestone anniversaries of 25, 50 or 60 or more years of marriage are invited to attend a liturgy in their honor at one of two parishes in the Erie Diocese.

August 9—St. Tobias Church, Brockway with Bishop Persico, celebrating.
August 23—Blessed Sacrament Church, Erie with Bishop Trautman, celebrating.

THE QUESTION OF THE WEEK:
Key Passage: "Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue rested on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them ability"
(Acts 2:3--4).
Adult: When has the Holy Spirit given you the strength to act with courage?
Child: When and where do you need the Holy Spirit’s help to speak out?

WHAT KIND OF STEWARD AM I? Stewardship of time, talent and treasure faces certain obstacles: greed, selfishness, irresponsibility and lack of trust.
