      IMMACULATE CONCEPTION OBSERVES 125th ANNIVERSARY

      On December 10, 2000, Immaculate Conception Church in Industry,
      commemorated the 125th anniversary of its formation with a Mass
      celebrated by Bishop Joseph Fiorenza of the Galveston-Houston Diocese,
      assisted by Father Tim Bucek and Deacon Gerald Dupont.

      In honor of the anniversary, a new ambo and altar were designed and
      handcrafted by Michael Colca of Wimberly. During the Liturgy, the ambo
      was blessed and the altar dedicated and anointed by Bishop Fiorenza.
      Both the ambo and altar were then dressed with cloths made especially
      for the occasion by Cindy Slator.

      After the Mass, Father Bucek presented beautifully framed antique
      articles from Immaculate Conception to Bill Hajek, Bessie and Jim Broz,
      and Eddie and Alice Pilcik for their many contributions to the parish
      over the last many years. In addition, Bishop Fiorenza received a
      framed antique stole, which has been placed in the Diocesan Archives.

      Immediately following the Mass, the celebration continued at the
      Fireman's Hall in Industry with hors d'oeuvres and a meal of barbecued
      beef, donated by Gaylen Ackley and prepared by some of the men of the
      parish, with side dishes Catered by Schovajsa's.

      A large cake, decorated with photographs of the four different churches
      in which parishioners have worshipped during those 125 years was enjoyed
      by members and their families. Altar Society members provided
      additional delicious desserts.

      A program was presented by the children of the parish from pre-K to
      fifth grade under the direction of Cindy Pilcik and Margie Reynolds with
      Nancy Richardson accompanying them on the piano.

      Keepsake programs which provided historical highlights of Immaculate
      Conception were given to all
      those who attended.
