I.C. celebrates ‘day of giving'

Immaculate Conception Parish School Student Council President, Ryan Miles and Vice President, Samantha Patton present a donation to Father Monty of the Immaculate Conception Church in the amount of $100 at the closing of Mass held on Nov. 18. Father Monty decided to match the $100 donation, resulting in a total donation of $200.

CLARION Celebrated annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, #iGiveCatholic kicks off the season of giving throughout the Catholic communities.

It helps bring the Catholic communities together in a joyous way to not only give thanks, but to give back as well. #iGiveCatholic inspires each Catholic to practice being faithful stewards by participating in the global day of giving, Giving Tuesday.

This year, Immaculate Conception Parish School has set a goal of $10,000 for the #iGiveCatholic mission. With this in mind, even the youngest of their saints in training have found a way to dig deep and give back.

The Immaculate Conception Parish School Student Council presented Father Monty with a generation donation of $100. Father Monty then surprised the student council representatives by matching their $100 donation, for a total donation of $200.

Individuals wishing to help during this season of giving may donate by dropping off monetary donations in an envelope to the school office by Nov. 30, or by donating online at https://erie.igivecatholic.org/ from Nov. 15 to 30.

To donate online simply visit https://erie.igivecatholic.org/, search for and select Immaculate Conception Parish School Clarion, and click the donate button.

All of the funds raised during this time will stay local within the school and benefit the students.
