The new food pantry – part of the overall campus improvements at Immaculate Conception Elementary School and Parish – is set to open next week. But first, students helped gather the most-needed items to help restock the shelves. To see a video of the morning’s proceedings, visit this 9 and 10 news story.
Students have adapted quickly to their new playground configuration, finding space to play in new places!
September saw the site changing quickly – with almost every day bringing something new!
In mid-September, the asphalt from the road and the parking lot was removed in preparation for the new building to take shape. A new road will be put in place just north of the rectory.
The cornerstone from the old section of Immaculate Conception school was salvaged and will be given a place of honor in the new building. Shown here are St. Francis students Jon Boehmer, Ryan Lints, Tyler Prichard and Dylan McCardel.
August 21 was an exciting day in the history of our schools as crews began to demolish the old section of the school to create temporary parking for the parish and school. To watch a bit of video, click here.
On June 13, 2017 – the Feast of St. Anthony of Padua – a final Mass was celebrated in the upper level of Immaculate Conception Elementary School (formerly the church). We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to celebrate one last Eucharist in this space. The priests wore special vestments (including hats called birettas) which would have been very familiar to those attending Mass, still said in Latin, “back in the day.”
