† 7 second Rule: It is good that children learn the Mass and be
formed by it. Young ones don’t always grasp the character of Mass and the proper way to be. Kids get fussy, that is natural. Just as we
needed at that age, they have to be instructed. Parents usually know
their children pretty well; a good rule of thumb is if you think your
child *is going* to be vocally unruly for about 7 seconds or more, that
is a good standard to judge whether they should be taken to the back of the church or outside. A parent should not think they are sinning by going outside even if this means they miss a bit of Mass. For toddlers, though, going outside should not be a reward for misbehaving at Mass, otherwise they will learn the wrong lesson. This church was built when ‘cry rooms’ weren’t a thing, but people managed alright. To those around who do not have young children, patience and charity. It is a good thing for children to come to Mass, even though they must be taught (by degrees) the better way to be present at Mass. Even mature adults must work at attending Mass more perfectly
+ The diocese is beginning the 2021 Progress appeal. Envelopes should be arriving soon and there are options to donate electronically as well. Immaculate Conception’s 2021 goal is $23,920. Thank you for prayerfully considering support of this campaign.
† Church attire: as the weather gets warmer, please remember that men should come to church in formal attire (no shorts, flip-flops, etc.). Women should choose attire that corresponds to their feminine dignity without being immodest (low-cut shirts, sleeveless, high skirts, etc.) or distracting to others. Vestimenta para la Iglesia: aunque el clima se este poniendo mas caluroso; por favor recuerden que los hombres deben de venir a la iglesia en vestimenta formal. Las mujeres deben de escoger una vestimenta que corresponde a su dignidad femenina sin ser impúdicas (blusas de cuello bajo, sin mangas, etc.) o que distraigan a otros.
