LoveEd is a life-changing program that is designed to help parishes and schools empower parents to teach both the theology and science of human sexuality within the context of God’s plan for love and life. It helps young people discover the beauty and the purpose of their sexuality, which is fully articulated in Catholic teaching.

Turkey Bingo Palooza, a fantastic fundraiser for our school each year before Thanksgiving, will be held on Saturday November 9th at 5:30pm at Holy Name of Jesus Parish Center. Soup and Chili will be served. Bingo begins at 6:15 with many incredible prizes.

Youth in grades 7-12 and adult leaders are invited to the annual Diocesan Youth Conference! Each year the diocese welcome nearly 2000 youth and adults from around the Diocese for this day of fun, community and prayer.  November 9, at the Swiftel Center in Brookings.  Contact Sarah in the Faith Formation Office for details and to register. 886-2772.

Due to the many people who travel for Thanksgiving we will not have Adoration on Wednesday, November 27th –Thursday, November 28th. You are always welcome to still come to the chapel during your time and spend it with Our Lord truly present in the tabernacle.  Begin your holiday festivities with Mass on Thanksgiving Day at 8:30am. As Catholics, Thanksgiving means much more than being grateful to God for the food He provides the body. It is a day that we can dedicate to a higher Thanksgiving, a Eucharistia (a Greek word meaning ‘Good Thanks’) for the Holy Sacrament of His love, the pledge of our eternal life. 


Immaculate Conception Advent Parish Mission - We are excited to announce that Monsignor James Shea, president of the University of Mary, will be joining us this Advent for a Parish Mission.  The Mission will be Sunday, December 1st - Tuesday, December 3rd, 7-8pm.  Monsignor will speak on the topic ‘The Blessed Virgin Compared to the Air we Breathe’.   We will learn and experience how Mary reveals Christ to us, how Mary is the channel of God’s mercy and how Mary is the mother of all the faithful. 


Advent Candles 12’ tapers and votive blessed advent candles are available in the parish office.

Sets include 3 purple and 1 pink candle.   Cost is $5 per set.


On behalf of Fr. Richard and the Parish Center Staff,
