Parish News & Events
ICSJ Parish's Christmas Giving Program is going on now through December 15th. This wonderful program provides gifts to families in our Sharing Parish, senior citizens who frequent our Food Pantry, and residents of Flannery Apartments, a CHA building for seniors and disabled individuals. It's as easy as taking a name tag off one of the trees at the back of our churches and returning a gift by December 15th. Click here for more info.
