Mission Statement: The Immaculate Conception Women’s Group seeks to share the love of Christ in our parish and the broader community through acts of charity, hospitality and fellowship.
ALL women of the Immaculate Conception Parish are included in the Women’s Group. Women may participate in any or all of the activities sponsored and supported by the group. Women are invited to contribute to any or all projects, from preparing and serving a meal to donating items to our many bake sales and craft fairs that are held throughout the year.
The women of IC are a diverse group, each of us with a special gift that we can bring to our parish. It is not necessary to attend monthly meetings, or fill out long forms.
Meetings are scheduled for the 3rd Monday of every month. They start at 6:00PM and are held in the down-stairs meeting room in the parish office.
Activities and contact persons are routinely announced in the Sunday Bulletin.
Join us in reaching out to other women, in our parish and around the world, to share Christ’s love and charity. Make your voice known.

Prayer to Our Lady of Good Counsel:
God of heavenly wisdom, you have given us Mary, Mother of Jesus, to be our guide and counselor. Grant that we may always seek her motherly help in this life and so enjoy her blessed presence in the life to come. O Mother of Good Counsel, patroness of the National Council of Catholic Women, intercede for us, that we may be wise, courageous, and loving leaders of the Church. Help us, dear mother, to know the mind of Jesus, your son. May the Holy Spirit fill us with reverence for God’s creation and compassion for all God’s children. May our labors of love on earth enhance the reign of God and may God’s gifts of faith and living hope prepare us for the fullness of the world to come. Amen.
