8th Sunday in Ordinary Time
“A good tree does not bear rotten fruit, nor does a rotten tree bear good fruit.”
I want to invite all the men of Immaculate Conception to a special night of prayer for our parish and families. The event is called the Midnight Watch. It is an hour of prayer once a month from midnight to 1:00 am on a Friday night into Saturday morning.
The idea of the Midnight Watch is to invite the men of the parish to set aside one hour of prayer every month for their family and our parish. The reason it is held at midnight is
1) because there are generally no scheduling conflicts at this time (except sleeping), and
2) to give men an opportunity to sacrifice this time of sleep for the sake of their family and our parish.
I have done this event at a couple of my previous parishes as well, and it is very rewarding to gather at church once a month with a good group of men who want to spend an hour in prayer for their family and parish.
I encourage all the men of Immaculate Conception to attend the Midnight Watch, even if only once or a few times a year.
It is usually the 2nd Friday night of the month, here is the schedule:
April 5th (1st Friday)
Let me know if you would like more info or would like to be on the email notification list.
You are in my daily prayers.
God bless you,
