As members of Immaculate Conception Parish in Augusta and members of the
Archdiocese of St. Louis, we seek to live our Catholic Faith in union with the
Archbishop. Faithful to the Gospel values of our Lord Jesus Christ, we strive to fulfill
our baptismal call by worshipping together, sharing our faith, and serving others in the
name of Jesus. Guided by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves to be responsible

Here is general Mass information during bad weather:
Weekends: In general, barring severe weather, there will always
be weekend Masses. Use common sense. We have an obligation
to worship on the Lord’s Day. We do not have an obligation to put
ourselves or others in danger because of road conditions. We have
lots of folks living on side roads that may not be taken care of as
well as Hwy. 94. Use your good judgment.
Weekdays: The general rule is, if St. Vincent School is cancelled,
there is no Mass that day.
Dynamic Catholic, Alive! – Christ as the Model of Prayer
Christ is our model of prayer. In the Gospels, we often find
Christ at prayer, for instance, before the decisive moments of
His mission and that of the Apostles. Even more, due to His
constant communion with the Father, his entire earthly life was
a prayer. Christ gave us not only the Our Father, but the
qualities necessary for prayer: purity of heart, faith,
watchfulness. Is your prayer life modeled after Christ’s?

CHANGE OUR LIVES
In today's first reading, Jonah, sent by God to warn the people, storms through Nineveh,
frightening the citizens out of their wits. It works! They repent before Jonah makes his
way through a third of the city, and God sees "by their actions" how they have turned
Then we hear Paul telling the Corinthians that "the world in its present form is passing
away." He calls for a change of heart. He stops short of telling them to set aside their
everyday lives, but still he urges them--rather mysteriously--to live as though they aren't
doing the things they're doing.
Finally, Jesus stands on the shore and cries, "The kingdom of God is at hand!" The
apostles-to-be abandon their nets and follow him. Thus in all the readings we hear an
invitation to a radical and immediate change in our lives.

It is my sad duty to inform you that our deacon, Ray Burle, will be leaving us. As you
know, he has had a bout with illness this fall. He has requested a change from the
Archbishop to serve closer to his home in Warrenton. With the Archbishop’s
approval, he will begin serving at Holy Rosary in Warrenton on March 9, so we still
have a few weeks with him here. I’d like to personally thank Ray and his wife Jean for
their willingness to come and be with both our parish families. They have enjoyed
both communities immensely, and it has been great working with them both. He has
said he is willing to help us out if I get in a bind, so we might see him every now and
then. Godspeed, Ray! God’s blessings on your health and continued ministry to
people wherever you go!
