Immaculate Conception Monastery Newsletter
The Passionist Community is dedicated to seeking ways to preserve our planet by using means to support this. Our Father Provincial, Very Rev. Father James O'Shea, CP recently announced to the Jamaica Community that the Monastery will be installing a solar panel to cut the cost of electricity and supply clean energy to the local grid.
After looking into the costs relating to our Monastery Telephone System, we have determined that we can save money and enhance our telephone system by switching to an alternate system. Mr. Brian Hallock our new I.T. Supervisor has succeeded in installing the new system.
The Monastery Public Chapel was out of service for a week while it was re-painted. It is now ready to serve the public in our area.
Ways to Order a Mass Card:
The Monastery relies on its prayer life to support the elderly priests and brothers who live in Immaculate Conception Monastery, the Health Care House of our Province. Can we help our loved ones who have died? Is there anything that we can still do for them? Can our prayers make a difference?
The answer is, yes. Pope Benedict said, "It is never too late to touch the heart of another, nor is it ever in vain. The souls of the departed can receive, 'solace and refreshment' through the Eucharist and through our prayers and charitable deeds. We believe that our love can reach into the afterlife, that reciprocal giving and receiving is possible. We believe that our affection for one another continues beyond the limits of death. It has been a fundamental conviction of Christianity, throughout the ages and it remains a source of comfort today."
