Join us for the 2014 Parish Mission

 "Jesus Christ – The New Evangelization and You!"

March 22 - 26

 
Each year our parish provides a time of reflection, prayer and deepening spirituality when we host the Parish Mission.  As dicsiples of Christ, we are all called to be missionaries to the world; sometimes, however, with work and family life, it is just not possible for us to “go on Mission” to serve others.  That is why we have the Mission and the Missionaries come straight to us!
 
Our Parish Mission this year will be held March 22- 26, 2014.  It begins March 22 during the 5 p.m. Mass when our visiting priests from Belize will celebrate Mass.  On Sunday, all the Masses, English and Spanish, will be celebrated by our visiting Missionaries. 

The Mission schedule is:

Saturday — March 22:  Fr. Noel and Fr. Lorenzo will Celebrate the Mass at 5:00 p.m.

Sunday — March 23:  Fr. Noel and Fr. Lorenzo will Celebrate all Masses in English and Spanish

Monday — March 24:  Fr. Noel Leslie will lead the English Parish Mission in the church following the 5:30 p.m. Mass. Fr. Lorenzo will lead the Spanish Mission in the Parish Hall at  6:30 p.m. 

Tuesday — March 25:  Fr. Lorenzo will lead the second night of the Spanish Mission in the Parish Hall beginning at 6:30 p.m.  Fr. Noel will lead the second night of the English Mission in the Church after the 5:30 p.m. Mass

Wednesday — March 26: Parish-Wide Reconciliation Service


Our English-speaking missionary is Fr Noel Leslie and he is a Diocesan priest who is a nominated Senator in Belize in the Country’s Senate.  He represents the Belize Council of Churches.  He studied philosophy and theology at St Joseph Seminary College in Louisiana, and at Cardinal Glennon College in St. Louis Missouri. Fr. Noel’s theological studies were done at Kenrick Theological Seminary in St. Louis Missouri where he obtained the Master of Divinity Degree. He was ordained in 1982 and did his sabbatical studies at St Joseph Seminary in Yonkers, New York, where he obtained his Master of Arts in Religious Studies. He is the pastor of St Joseph Parish, and in that capacity he also assists at three other Missions. Fr. Noel once served as Vicar General of the Diocese.
 
Our Spanish-speaking mission priest is Fr Lorenzo Echeverrria Argueta F.M.M.. He is member of the Fraternidad Missioneras de Maria. The Missionary Fraternity of Mary is an order of Priests within the Roman Catholic Church dedicated to educating and ordaining young men to bring the good news and the sacraments to the marginalized Catholics of the world.  They educate the poor, welcome vocations to religious life to all without regard to ethnic background; prepare youth for lay ministry within the Church, and work with the poor to develop their spiritual and temporal well being. The Society also

  • Serves the pastoral needs of over 750,000 Catholics in 11 countries including the United States (165 FMM priests in ministry)
  • Educates youth at the junior high and high school level in the basic skills at both the Seminary and at parish schools where FMM priests are serving
  • Works with young adults through a youth ministry movement to prepare them for leadership in the church (over 10,000 youth have participated to date)
  • Supports medical clinics at mission parishes that provide services to parishioners at little or no cost
  • Provides employment training at mission parishes
  • Educates and assist in implementing infrastructure projects to improve the quality of life of the people served
  • Constructs basic mission chapels in areas that lack adequate worship space

Fr. Lorenzo is a Salvadoran currently serving as parochial vicar of La Immaculada parish and also the missions in Orange Walk

CATHOLIC SCRIPTURE MATCH (Dot Com?)
 
We are so excited you are interested in pursuing a Bible/Scripture Study.

Catholic Scripture Match is Mary Immaculate’s vision of matching people up with the books of the Bible they want to study, the types of study, the day and time of the week, appropriate groups such as by age or marital status, etc. We hope to help you find other parishioners who are interested in the same studies that you are. We then will help you with details such as ordering studies for you, finding a place to help you study, etc.

If you have questions before filling out this form, please call Beth in the parish office at 972-243-7104 x 46, or stop in any Monday through Thursday morning at the parish office.

Once you have filled in this form, place it in a sealed envelope and drop it off at the parish office with Beth’s name on the front. Mary Immaculate Parish will not share this information with anyone, and it will remain confidential.

Adults of the Parish ---- YOU are Invited!

Mary Immaculate Parish Retreats



For Adults of all Ages
Mary Immaculate Parish Hall
Are you looking for a way to meet other parishioners and to help our parish grow as a faith community? Mary Immaculate offers parish retreats to encourage spiritual growth in our parish community. Many of us attend Mass each week but never have an opportunity to connect with our fellow parishioners. Oftentimes, we would like to develop our faith at a deeper level but making a formal silent retreat can be intimidating. Our parish’s Lifelong Faith Retreat is fun, convenient, and spiritually enriching. Come give it a try!
  • The retreats start on Fridays at 6:30pm with dinner and continues until 10pm. Everyone goes home to sleep and returns for breakfast on Saturday at 8:30am. There is a break for lunch, and we are finished by 4:00pm.
  • This retreat is geared for adults, where no one is forced to talk or share more than they are comfortable doing.
  • The price is very reasonable: free!!
Comments from parishioners who attended other retreats:
  • Very kind, pleasant, loving, enjoyable environment & group of people.
  • I love the way the day flows.
  • Received so much. Proud to be Catholic & Mary Immaculate parishioner.

Come and grow with your parish family at our parish retreat!
