Committee To Save Immaculate Conception Changes Meeting Schedule

The members of the Committee to Save the Immaculate Conception Church resumed their meetings for the new year last Thursday evening, January 12, at Wellsville's SOI Lodge.

With the appeal to keep the church open now in the long term process with the Congregation of Clergy at the Vatican in Rome, news will probably be scarce for the time being. By general consensus of all those present it was decided to modify the meeting schedule to twice monthly for the winter months. Meetings will be held the first and third Thursday of the month starting tomorrow, January 19.

Meetings will remain scheduled for 6:30 PM on those Thursdays at the SOI Lodge, located at 327 Main Street in Wellsville. The SOI kitchen will be open at 6 PM preceding the meetings. The meeting schedule will be revisited in April according to Co-chairman Tom Brophey.

Prayer services are still be held each Saturday afternoon at the United First Methodist Church located at 501 Main St. The services are open to the public and begin at 3:30 PM.

Thank you for posting this announcement. The committee is hopeful that some day the doors to Immaculate Conception Church will be unlocked. We have the best Advocate and attorneys in Rome building our case before the Vatican. I am asking everyone to keep ICC in prayer more than ever. Who would have thought that Immaculate Conception Church in Wellsville, Ohio would be before the Vatican?

The efforts of everyone involved with this endeavor are to be commended. They have put in a lot of hard, impressive work with the fund raising to finance their goals in keeping the Catholic church in Wellsville. Their dedication and willingness to work toward that goal is proof positive that Wellsville is indeed some place special.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you all...
