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
ANOINTING OF THE SICK MASS AND LUNCHEON
Saturday, September 27 11:00 AM
We invite parishioners to experience the power, healing and hope that is given
through this Sacrament. Anointing of the Sick is intended for all who need healing –
physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
Once given only for those near death, Anointing of the Sick
now includes those who suffer from chronic illness and/or any other type
of debilitating condition, such as depression, anxiety, addiction or grief.
Let us come together as a faith community, praying that God heals all that afflicts us.
A luncheon immediately follows the celebration, to which all are cordially invited.
Please contact Pam Stefik at 630-530-3497 for further information.

Traveling Mary is sorry to say that, at this time, all weeks
remaining in her year-long journey during the Year
of Mary at IC have been reserved.
If you would like, you can place your family's name
on a stand-by list here in case 'life occurs' and
a family cannot host Mary as planned.
Should a week come open, we will email all
on the stand-by list. The first family to
respond will be given the opportunity
to host Mary for that week.
Thank you for the support of the Traveling Mary program.
