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

As we pray and fast during this holy season of Lent,
Let us also "give back" to God, who has given us so much.
Please return your bags on Palm Sunday.
As a parish family, let us prayerfully journey with those who will receive the Sacraments of Initiation at the Easter Vigil. We pray for Amber Bautista, Erika Bautista, Brooklyn Colegrove, Alejandro Carreon, Javier Carreon, Kaya Hood, Mia Hood, Cara Morse, Jared Overdorf, Sarah Ramos, Osamu Omorogbe, Nosa Omorogbe, Rosemary Osatohanmwen and Taylor Tayfel.
If you have never attended the Easter Vigil, this is the year to come! We will welcome sixteen people into full initiation with the Catholic Church. Six individuals will be baptized; three will make a Profession of Faith; fourteen will receive Eucharist for the first time and sixteen will be confirmed. Let us show our support for them and lovingly welcome them into our parish family on this most holy night. Please join us on Saturday, April 15 at 8:00 PM — extraordinary grace awaits us all.
