Advent is a time of waiting

Waiting for Christmas can be so hard, especially when you are in preschool.  Miss Mary Heschel’s class has been busy getting ready for the big day.  Songs have been sung, trees have been decorated, ornaments have been made and stories have been read.  But, ICS preschoolers have taken time to learn about advent as a time to prepare our hearts for the birthday of Jesus.   

The Immaculate Conception Preschool studies the church’s Advent wreath and talked about the true the meaning of the season.   The season of waiting is not easy for 3 and 4 year olds, but they have learned that the Birth of Jesus is the greatest gift of Christmas and so very much worth the wait.


Blessing of friendship

Brynnlee Siefke stirs the cornbread for her class's Thanksgiving Feast.

The IC Preschool gave thanks on Thursday for a table full of treats and the blessing of friendship.  The class made their own butter and cornbread and enjoyed other fruits and vegetables as well.  The classroom was decorated with pumpkins, at teepee, and even a pilgrim or two. "Thank you Jesus" was the motto of the day Thursday and every day!


Immaculate Conception Honors Veterans

Paige Reineck and Annabelle Barna present the flag at ICS's Veteran Day Mass.  

Immaculate Conception School held its annual salute to Veterans Friday, November 7.   This year Veteran’s Day was celebrated with a Mass dedicated to the safety of our Military, but also gave thanks for the freedoms and peace we take for granted each and every day.  Students that participate in Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts wore with pride their uniforms for this special celebration.   

Mass began with the presentation of the flag by fifth grade students Paige Reineck and Anabelle Barna.  Father John Missler began Mass with a prayer of thanksgiving for the men and women who have worn the uniforms of our military and the sacrifices they have made.  The prayers of gratitude and petitions for safety, freedom, and peace continued throughout.  The National Anthem and “God Bless America” was led by Music Director, Mrs. Mary Krejci.   

To all Veterans, the children and staff of Immaculate Conception wish to say thank you!
