Parish Reopening Team Volunteer Form
We are still actively recruiting additional volunteers to help staff our Greeting and Cleaning teams. We currently have approximately 42 volunteers that have kindly stepped forward, which is truly a blessing. Ideally, we would like to have a pool of 50 total volunteers to spread between our 2 teams (as the more volunteers we have to rely upon, the less burden that will be placed upon each one individually.) If you would like to volunteer to assist us with our ongoing reopening process, please complete our Parish Reopening Team Volunteer Form located below. We are particularly seeking volunteers to assist us with either our First Friday 5:30 P.M. Mass & Adoration and/or our Saturday evening Mass at 5:00 P.M. (which resumes on Saturday, September 19th) Thank you and may God bless you!

IC Catholic High School Scholarship Fund
In response to the economic challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and to encourage students from IC to attend Catholic high schools, Immaculate Conception Parish would like to start a scholarship fund for graduates of Immaculate Conception School and our Religious Education Program to use for tuition at Catholic high schools. We recognize the value and importance of a Catholic high school education and we hope that this could potentially make a difference in the ability of our graduates to continue their Catholic education. All graduates from Immaculate Conception School or our Religious Education Program who either will attend a Catholic high school next year or are currently enrolled at Catholic high schools would be eligible to apply. Application materials and directions will be posted on our parish website after January 1, 2021. While the amount and number of the scholarships available will depend upon the amount of money raised, it is hoped that they would be a minimum of $500. Also, while it is hoped that the scholarships could be renewed, funding initially is only guaranteed for one year.
To kick off the fundraising part of our efforts, Fr. Robert Carlton ran a half marathon in the Norwood Park Circle on November 1st, successfully completing 13 miles. If you would like to contribute to our IC Scholarship Fund, please visit: https://www.givecentral.org/location/349/event/28631. The fundraising deadline is Monday, March 1, 2021. Please contact Fr. Robert at 773.775.3833 Ext. 102 or via email at [email protected] with any additional questions.
