Elements of the Catholic Mass Video Series “shorts” on YouTube!
As part of a new initiative to help the faithful better appreciate the beauty of the Mass, the Liturgical Institute of the University of Saint Mary of the Lake, Mundelein, Illinois, has created a new free video series that takes viewers through every detail of the Mass.
Titled Elements of the Catholic Mass, the series is a collection of short 205 minute videos on different aspects or elements of the Mass. New episodes are upload every Sunday morning on YouTube.

Immaculate Conception offers (CLOW)
Children’s Liturgy of the Word at 9:30 AM Masses.

There will not be CLOW on the Sundays of Religious Education.  Children ages 2 & up are invited to join us.

Please sign-in on the sheet in the entrance way upon your arrival at Mass so we have an idea of how many children to expect that day. Prior to the scripture readings, children are called to come forward to join the CLOW group. The children are taken to the Sacristy where they can hear the Sunday scripture readings at their own level. They return to Church and rejoin their families during the offertory in order to celebrate the Liturgy of the Eucharist. Pflaum Gospel Weeklies will be utilized with the hope that the parents will review the lesson with their child(ren).

We hope you'll consider having your child(ren) join us each week for this wonderful faith formation opportunity!

Saturday Evening Mass - 5:45 PM
