2017 - Morning of Service Recap
Immaculate Conception Parishioners serve Christ and the community with love, mercy and humility

Congratulations Immaculate Conception! On Saturday morning, November 4, almost 400 volunteers provided over 800 hours of service to our local community. We participated in 28 different projects, both on site in the parish center and off-site at agencies in Scotia- Glenville, Schenectady, Albany, Ballston Spa, Latham and Saratoga. In the parish center, we produced fall decorations for our parish homebound; pencil pouches for Samaritan’s Purse, Christmas cards for active military, children’s fleece blankets for the Ronald Mc Donald House and Northeast Parent and Child, memory book pages for Albany Med NICU and welcome bags for the Ronald McDonald House. We made meals for the Salvation Army Booth House, City Mission, and Habitat for Humanity. We visited patients at Baptist, Glendale and Heritage Home. We cleaned, sorted and organized inventory at the Regional Food Bank, Habitat for Humanity Restore and Things of My Very Own; we painted at the Schenectady Day Nursery and YWCA. We did odd jobs for the Joan Nicole Prince Home, Jack’s Place, MiSci, Shelters of Saratoga, and the Town of Glenville. We helped build at Habitat for Humanity.

We want to thank all the team leaders and helpers for coordinating and leading their teams; our nurse, Fran Bosher, and our photographers Denise Frailio and Julie Ashcroft; our photo organizer Michele DiLorenzo, the parish staff especially Fran and Kathy for their support since January; the parishioners who generously donated money and materials; and to Father Jerry for supporting our ideas and for his active participation.

Janice and MaryAnn sincerely express their gratitude to the Planning Committee for their diligent efforts since January to put together our second Morning of Service. They are Christine Goss and Marge Rizzo– Projects; Jean Behr and Tom Bigos – Signups and Volunteers; Joan Bunn - Supplies; Lynn Winterberger – Site Prep; Karen Bond - Secretary; Kris McConville and Maryann Haskell – Legal and Finance; Roz DiDinato and Audie Van Buren - Hospitality; Eileen and Frank Zilinskas – Evaluations. This event could not have happened without their generous contributions of talent and time.
