How can you help? Easy. Participate in our Annual Food Drive.
Fill a bag with non-perishible food items, and drop it off at Immaculate Conception or St. Jude churches or the Parish Center any time theses buildings are open.
At this time our pantry is in desperate need of ALL food items, including the following:
- mac & cheese

- instant potatoes
- rice a roni
- canned vegetables
- cake mix and icing
- pie crust and filling

Thank you for helping us feed the hungry in our community. God bless you!

Now Available: Lighthouse Catholic Media!
Now Available at Immaculate Conception Parish and St. Jude’s Mission: Lighthouse Catholic Media!
Lighthouse Catholic Media offers a power-packed selection of some of the most well-respected Catholic speakers. For a small donation, you can bring these dynamic Catholic speakers into your home, car, or wherever you want to learn more about the Catholic faith. Grab one to share with a friend, relative, neighbor, or co-worker–these CD’s make evangelization a snap! Also available are pamphlets and books, each of which will help you to know and live your faith more effectively. These resources are perfect for people who are on the run, busy at home raising a family, or simply unable to make other adult education events (though we hope you consider attending these as well)!
Soon you will see a display on your way into church (at the chapel entrance at ICC) that will offer nine different CDs, three different brochures, and seven books. These feature some of the most inspiring Catholic speakers. These resources will be available for purchase after all Masses. We ask for a donation of $3.00 per CD, and $.50 per brochure so that we may continue this program. We encourage you to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity!
Click here to see a list and descriptions of the CD’s that will be available, and watch the video below to learn more about this exciting resource! Finally, please pray that God opens our minds and hearts to receive even more fully the wondrous gifts of our faith, and that these resources may draw many new people to Jesus, his Church, and our parish.
Faith at Home
This interactive resource is designed to give you unlimited access to easy-to-use tools, tips, family activities, blogs, forums, and advice–everything you need to build a stronger, more faith-focused family.
All of the faith-forming activities are written with a specific audience in mind such as Young Family or Teen Family or Adult/Couple, but many activities are perfectly appropriate for individuals and families of all ages and stages. See [this link] to learn more.
