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 - March 2nd, 2022

"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 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.
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.

For the first time in two years, the IC Parish held a Christmas Pageant preceding the 6:00 Mass on Friday, Dec. 24th. Under the direction of Sr. Gina Sinapilo, children from Pre-K to Young Adults dazzled all in attendance with Christmas songs, dances and instrumental music harking the birth of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.  To watch the full pageant, please go to https://www.facebook.com/KauaiICCYM/

Throughout the month of November and December, IC church goers sponsored Angel Ornaments.  Each ornament had a special individual request to help brighten their lives during the Christmas season. This year, we were blessed to help over thirty families!
Mahalo for supporting the Angel Tree Project for the past five years. Your continued sponsorship for the donation of gifts have brought immense joy and happiness to so many children and families enrolled in the Women in Need Program.  
The church thanks everyone for the overwhelming response to the request for non-perishable items such as canned goods to support the ICC Food Drive Ministry.  This program started in Spring 2021 and has helped to build our canned food stock-pile along with non-food supplies.  
To join this important ministry, please join our meetings every second Sunday of the month at 10:45 am in the New Parish Hall, or contact Carol Simon at 808-205-7179 to see how you can get involved in preparing food bags or conducting deliveries to the homeless.
