Last spring we conducted a survey with parishioners asking what “you” would like to see at IHM. There was a big response for changes in our music. We are listening! We will be adding a Contemporary Ensemble Sunday, October 18th at the 10:30 Mass.
Joining either choir is a SMALL commitment. Both choirs meet on Sundays (only) 9:00am and sing at the 10:30 Mass. The Contemporary Ensemble will sing on the third Sunday of each month beginning Sunday, October 18th!
We are looking for choir members and musicians. We are hoping that many of you would like to take part in one or both of these choirs. Join us on Sundays at 9:00 (or the 3rd Sunday if you wish just to be in theContemporary Ensemble). Be a part of theMusic Ministry here at IHM. If you have
questions, please call the parish office!

Here is the link to the complete Encyclical "ON CARE FOR OUR COMMON HOME" from Pope Francis.
World leaders will meet in the U.N. Climate Summit at Paris (called COP21) in late November 2015, to sign a treaty to tackle climate change. After decades of failed negotiations, we need to increase the pressure on our governments for them to be more ambitious to solve the climate crisis. - See more at: http://catholicclimatemovement.global/petition/#sthash.rIgQKkjs.2zC0iYM2.dpuf
Our parish is a welcoming community, called by Baptism, growing in faith and holiness through worship, prayer, and service, and formed by the Gospel and the traditions of the Catholic Church.
