Father VanDenBroeke’s Installation
“Amen, I say to you, whoever does not accept the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it.”
Family, Faith, Football
This month’s Lighthouse CD is Family, Faith & Football by Philip Rivers.
You might think that an NFL athlete’s whole world revolves around football. But for Philip Rivers, starting quarterback of the Los Angeles Chargers, it’s just one of the things that makes him who he is. More important than his football accomplishments are his love for his family and his dedication to his faith. In this inspiring talk, Rivers recounts lessons he’s learned on the football field and shares how faith impacts his football career and family life—keeping him focused on what matters most.
This talk will help inspire you to be a man or woman of faith as you raise your family centered on Christ. It is a talk no football fan should miss.
Last weekend, I preached about the need right now for us to pray and fast for an end to abortion. With just four weeks until the election, I thought it would be helpful to print where the candidates stand on the issue of Life, which is the most important and fundamental of all rights. Please see the inserts in today’s bulletin provided by MCCL.
Today is also my installation as Pastor here at Immaculate Conception.
I’m grateful to Archbishop Hebda for assigning me as the spiritual father of this parish community. I’m grateful to Fr. Michael Skluzacek for coming down to do my installation. And I’m most grateful to all of you here at Immaculate Conception who have welcomed me and given me so much joy this last year. I look forward to many more wonderful years here with you.
You are in my daily prayers.
God bless you,
Fr. Nick VanDenBroeke
