Welcome to Immaculate Conception Catholic Church

We are a community of imperfect men and women who strive to be faithful to the promises of our baptism by living the gospel of Jesus Christ and gathering to give praise and thanksgiving to our God in our celebrations of Eucharist. The households of our Parish represent a rich mixture of races and ethnic diversity, the married and the single and the divorced and the separated, the working and the retired, civilian and military, young people and seniors, the healthy and the infirm. Together we encourage one another to be faithful Catholics in midst of a complex and wonderful yet messy world.

Our communal celebration of liturgy is very important to us; we want it truly to be the source and summit of our spiritual lives. Hospitality is a prerequisite for the celebration of Eucharist; visitors and guest from other parishes and other diocesan churches are cordially welcomed. Your presence with us for Eucharist is a witness to your faith and thereby strengthens our faith. Welcome!

All Ages and the “New Evangelization” - Sun, Oct 5 at 12:45 p.m.

Wondering what all this talk of “Evangelization” is about and why it matters to you and our church?  The four All Ages Faith Formation sessions this year will look at different expressions of evangelization, as part of preparing our parish to respond to Pope Francis’s invitation to share the joy of the Gospel.  The first All Ages session will explore what it means to be a disciple of Christ.  Mark Hoggard (a member of the parish and the Director of Lifelong Faith Formation at St. Therese in Chesapeake) will lead the adult session, entitled: “Evangelization, Encountering the Word: Name-Dropping for Jesus."  

We begin together with lunch in the Commons, followed by our sessions. The children will have an age appropriate program during the adult session.  A nursery for children ages 1-3 will be available only by reservation.
