On behalf of the Family of Faith of our parish, it is my pleasure to welcome you. Since 1876 IC has been a community of believers that has worked to build the Kingdom of God. Our parish has a rich history that we continue to build upon. Our Liturgical celebrations, educational opportunities and outreach efforts are amongst our many efforts of active parish life.
If you are already familiar with IC, I hope the information on this site helps to keep you updated of our activities. If you are new to the area and are looking for a community to join, I hope our information encourages you to consider either visiting or joining our parish. You are most welcome to do so, and to also contact our office with any questions.
Welcome to Immaculate Conception! I hope to see you soon.
Very Rev. Thomas Paul, Pastor
Sacred Heart of Jesus
O Most Holy Heart of Jesus, for whom it is impossible
not to have compassion for us,
please have mercy upon us as we place our trust in You.
To You we surrender the many needs of Your church;
asking for Your help, especially on those who are in pain.
Please heal the hearts of those who are broken
and help us to grow closer to You.
As our Immaculate Conception community anticipates the renewal
of the chapel in Your honor, help our hearts, minds, and voices
to be strengthened by Your goodness and love.
We come before You grateful for all that You have done for us.
Help us to be ever generous with what we have
received as we return our blessings to You.

- Everyone 14 years of age or over is bound to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday and all Fridays of Lent.
- All from the age of 18 years up to the beginning of their 60th year are bound to fast Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.
- On these two days of fast and abstinence, only one full meatless meal is allowed. Two other meatless meals, sufficient to maintain strength, may be taken according to each one's needs, but together the should not equal another full meal. Eating between meals is not permitted on these days, but liquids, including milk and fruit juices are allowed. When health or ability to work would be seriously affected, the law does not oblige.
- To disregard completely the law of fast and abstinence is seriously sinful.
- Lent is the principal season of penance in the Church year. All of the faithful are strongly urged to develop and follow a program of voluntary self- denial (in addition to following the Lenten regulations), serious prayer, and a performance of works of charity and mercy.
Those who are sick, pregnant, or nursing, or whose health would adversely be affected by fasting or abstinence, should not consider themselves bound by these norms.
