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.
