Worship Commission Home
Immaculate Conception Parish provides warm, welcoming liturgies with relevant, Scripture based homilies that encourage and challenge our community to live a Christ-Centered life in today’s world. 
 
Our Parish provides worship opportunities that attract all age groups with special emphasis on those who may be marginalized or may be experiencing limited participation. When parishioners leave Church our goal is to have  “their hearts are burning to know love and serve God by loving and serving others.”





 
 
Do you know WHY we do WHAT we do
during the
Celebration of the Mass?
 
The Roman Catholic Mass is filled with rituals and items of
which many Catholics forget the meaning of as
we move along the path of life. 

Very often we do things out of habit rather than
reflecting WHY we are doing that action. 

The true beauty of the Mass can be seen more clearly when it is
broken down into its components and explained in a way
that puts emphasis on why an action is made
as opposed to what the action is.

Is it time for you to rediscover the Sacrament of Penance?


Been a while since your last confession? Do these thoughts sound familiar?
  • It's been so long, I can not remember the words to say; what should I do?
  • I have committed too many sins, the priest will never forgive me; what should I do?
  • Does the Church still teach that we have to go to Confession?
  • What's the Sacrament called today? Is it Penance, Reconciliation or Confession?

If you have experienced one or more of these thoughts, be comfortable to know you have lots of company. 

If you will click here, you will find resources to help you rediscover the Sacrament of Penance and get answers to often asked questions about the Church and Church teachings on the Sacrament of Penance, an often misunderstood sacrament. 


Are you dressing properly to worship? 

God may not care what you wear to worship.....
.........but your fellow IC Parishioners do! 


"If you question if your dress is
appropriate or not, it probably is not;  
please err on the side of caution"


~ In consideration of others, please dress properly ~
