Generous and Loving Creator, you have called use to Malama I ka Makana (Cherish the Gift).  As disciples of your Son, we ask that your Spirit open our minds and hearts to more deeply appreciate your countless blessings.Increase your transforming spirit within us, so as to nurture our call to stewardship as a way of life marked always by faith-filled prayer, service to others and generous giving.With the kokua of St. Marianne and St. Damien, teach us to be good stewards so we may return a hundred-fold the makana entrusted to us.We pray this through Jesus Christ, our Lord.  Amen.


OUR VISION

OUR MISSION

Responding to the call of Jesus and inspired by the example of the Blessed Mother, the Immaculate Conception, we live stewardship towards a holy way of life.


PRAYER FOR A STEWARDSHIP PARISH

(from the Archdiocese of Detroit)

Dear Heavenly Father, my parish is composed of people like me; I help make it what it is.  It will be friendly if I am. Its pews will be filled, if I help fill them. It will do great work, if I work.  It will make generous gifts to many causes, If I am a generous giver. It will bring other people into its worship and fellowship, If I invite and bring them.  It will be a parish of loyalty and love, of fearlessness and faith, and a parish with a noble spirit, If I, who make it what it is, am filled with these same things.  Therefore with your help, O God, I shall dedicate myself to the task of being all things that I want my parish to be. Amen.

Ash Wednesday

"The Season of Lent is more than changing our routines for forty days. The Season of Lent is a time for us to introspect and see where we are at in our relationship with God. The Season of Lent desires our spiritual growth. The Season of Lent targets our hearts so we can speak and act like Christ Jesus as we continue our faith-life journey here on earth." (From the Ash Wednesday Homily of Fr. Edison Pamintuan, MS)
The Christmas season starts on Dec. 25 during the celebration of the birth of Christ which is followed by the feast of the Epiphany, along with the visit of the Magi and other events from the childhood of Jesus,and ends with the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord in January.
The Advent season is a time of preparation that directs our hearts and minds to Christ’s second coming at the end of time and also to the anniversary of the Lord’s birth on Christmas. The final days of Advent, from December 17 to December 24, focus particularly on our preparation for the celebrations of the Nativity of our Lord.
Mahalo for your generous support these past 4 years for supporting ICC's Angel Tree Program. Your gifts have brought immense joy and happiness to over 200 families in the Women in Need Program and we thank you for your continued support.
The church also thanks you for the overwhelming response to our request for non-perishable items such as canned goods to support the ICC Food Drive Ministry.  This program will start in Spring 2021 so your help in building our stockpile of dried goods and other material is much appreciated.  Thank you for your generous support and God Bless!

"There is nothing more important than parents passing on a generational legacy of faith and values to their children." - James Dobson

Big Mahalo, to all who joined us in this year's - Family Rosary Devotion

OUR DREAM CAME TRUE!

Our parish has blossomed into a vibrant and exciting community. With the exceptional leadership of our parish team and dedicated stewards, many programs such as feeding the homeless; helping women and children in need; ministering to the elderly and homebound; Life Teen; EDGE and children's choir have grown significantly.

New and returning families are more than ever involved in ministries, but we lack space and facilities to accommodate the needs of our busy parish.  

Our new Parish Hall serves as a means to continue our mission of stewardship and service to our community. With your generous support, we can continue to raise funds to finish this important project.

There are several ways you can help: 

1) Write your tax deductible check payable to ICC Building Fund and mail to Immaculate Conception Church 4453 Kapaia Road Lihue, HI 96766. 

2) Hand deliver to the Immaculate Conception Church office, Monday to Saturday from 8 am to 12 pm.

3) DONATE HERE on our secured site. To learn more about our building project and our parish pastoral plan, please call 245-2432. Mahalo and God Bless Always!
