Director of Music Ministry leaving IC parish, returning to teaching

Dear IC Family, After serving in Catholic music ministry for over 15 years and with much thought and consideration, I have decided to return to a teaching career this fall. Not only do I love working with children, but the change in schedule will also allow more time on the weekends to spend with my three daughters. I’m very grateful for my time here at Immaculate Conception Parish as your Music Director and will always treasure the friendships I’ve made and the spiritual opportunities that I was blessed to be a part of. I will surely not be a stranger to IC as it is a parish that is near and dear to my heart, and sacred music will continue to be an important part of my life. I’m looking forward to teaching 3rd Grade at St. Agatha this fall, and will be forever grateful for the supportive IC staff and the parishioners, choirs, and cantors whose praise of God through song weekend after weekend have truly given me so much joy. With Gratitude, Deanna Oppenheimer

StrengthsBelief in Core Catholic Teaching Overall, 63% of parishioners believed that the Eucharist is the Body/Blood of Christ. Additionally, 64% believe scripture is word of God and 48% believe Church is critical in relationship with God. Emphasis on Prayer & Mass Attendance Survey results are very strong for people taking personal prayer time: daily (61%) and weekly (21%). The frequency of Mass attendance for all survey respondents is very high: 71% weekly and 7% daily. Educating Children in the Catholic Faith The support and love of the school is very evident as 83% of survey respondents would recommend the parish school. Overall, 76% would also recommend parish religious education from Immaculate Conception. Areas for GrowthRetreats Retreats are rarely talked about or prioritized  and if someone has never been on one, the value of a retreat is not well understood. Missionary Impulse There is a need to create an environment that encourages people to share  one’s personal story and the story of Jesus. We have opportunities to grow in depth of intentional relationships with one another in the community. This is a desire for more opportunities for follow-up. Key Stats Survey Results
