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
BLESSED VIRGIN MARY

O Most Holy Heart of Jesus, for whom it is impossible
||Sacred Heart of Jesus
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.
