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.
As a parish family, we congratulate and warmly welcome those who
were received into full Communion with the Catholic Church last
Sunday. Shauna Brueggen and Christine Harezlak, entered the
Catholic Church from the Presbyterian tradition, made a Profession
of Faith, were confirmed and received First Eucharist. Emil Amerei,
Mia Carreon and Nicholas Credidio, already baptized Catholic,
completed their Sacraments of Initiation and received the Sacraments
of Confirmation and First Eucharist.
These individuals have been in formation through the RCIA process
since September. We also congratulate their godparents/sponsors
who journeyed with them. Let us rejoice with them and pray for them
in a special way as they join us at the Eucharistic table.
Many thanks to our Immaculate Conception family for
supporting St. Mary’s Mission School in Red Lake, MN
through your generous donation of Lenten alms. We will
be sending Fr. Jerry a check in the amount of $36,000.00,
which will significantly aid in the establishment of an eighth
grade classroom. This will have an enormous positive impact
not only for the families of St. Mary’s, but for the entire
reservation. May God return to you one hundred-fold what
you have shared with those less fortunate.
The Shrine of the Christ’s Passion is a multi-media
|The Shrine of Christ’s Passion
St. John, Indiana / Second Annual Bus Trip
interactive, half-mile winding Prayer Trail that depicts
the last days of Jesus Christ’s life. 40 life-size bronze
sculptures vividly tell the story of the crucifixion and
resurrection as never before! We will also tour St. John
the Evangelist Catholic Church, which borders the shrine.
Our trip is scheduled for Tuesday, June 25. We will
leave at 9:00AM and return by 4:00PM. Space
is limited. The cost is $25.00, which will defray the
cost of the coach bus. A limited number of club cars
are available on-site for anyone unable to
walk the path.
Please call Pam Stefik at 630-530-3497 to reserve
your spot or obtain additional information about the trip.
IC Daybreak Transitional Housing has partnered with Elmhurst
College to develop a survey on charitable giving.
All parishioners with e-mail addresses
will receive the survey, which will take approximately 5 minutes
to complete. Our current donors will receive a special survey
in the mail, which we ask that you complete and return as soon as
possible. IC Daybreak is one of the largest and most respected
transitional housing programs in the Diocese of Joliet.
Our survey will help us determine how to broaden our
donor base and expand our existing services.
If you have any questions, please contact Pam Stefik
Thank you in advance for completing the survey.
