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
Council of Catholic Women
2018 Woman of the Year
We are proud to announce
is this year’s Woman of the Year
from Immaculate Conception Parish.
Maria has been involved with the food pantry,
Easter baskets, Christmas Giving Tree gift sorting,
helping with the Bishop Blanchette scholarship award,
the cookie walk, the CCW luncheon, and Grace Café.
She is a true example of living a faithful and service filled life.
She and her husband, John, have been parishioners
for 25 years and have six children.
All the Women of the Year from parishes in the Joliet Diocese
will be honored at a Mass in the Cathedral on Saturday, April 28th.
Also, the Woman of the Year will crown the Blessed Mother
at our May crowning on Sunday May 6th at 9 a.m. Mass.
If you are a mother, grandmother, aunt or friend of minor children, you will not want to miss this evening. Come and learn about the epidemic of human trafficking that most of us know little about. WAR, International provides safe houses for at-risk women throughout the world (including the United States).
|We Invite You to Join Us
on May 10, 2018 at 7:00 PM
Following a presentation on human trafficking, we will be able to shop the WAR Boutique, featuring jewelry, scarves, stationary, home décor and much more, all created by women around the world rescued from human trafficking. Please save the date and join us for an informative and eye-opening evening. RSVP to Pam Stefik at 630-530-3497.
Traveling Mary is a statue of the Blessed Virgin that
||Traveling Mary Returns!
made her first appearance at IC in 2014 during
the Year of Mary. During her first year she
was VERY busy and visited, one week
at a time, over 50 IC homes.
Traveling Mary has been very active but we’re pleased to
announce She is now booking visits to welcoming parishioner
homes for 3-4 weeks beginning in June of 2018.
Host families agree to take care of
delivering Traveling Mary to the next
family to expedite the process.
If your family would like to be placed on the list
for a visit from Traveling Mary,
please register online here.
Immaculate Conception hosts a PADS site
on the third Saturday of each month
beginning October - April.
Hundreds of volunteers are needed to help purchase
and/or prepare food, pick up and deliver food
(from the Rectory to the PADS site),
serve our guests, be present for the overnight hours,
prepare breakfast and lunches
and clean up. You do NOT need to help each
and every month.
This is a great family service project for those
who need service hours.
We can’t do this without you!
Please contact Marybeth Lawshe
at email@example.com if you can help in some way.
||If you or someone you know are experiencing health issues, facing surgery, receiving or recuperating from medical treatments, healing through grief or experiencing a significant life crossroads and would like to receive a prayer shawl, please contact the parish office at
