To comply with health regulations, the number of attendees at our Mass will be regrettably limited to 15 to 20% of our total capacity* for the time being. (*approximately 125 attendees.) Our Sunday Mass schedule will gradually expand over the course of the summer, so we encourage you to continue to monitor our parish website for additional updates to our schedule if you are unable to register for our morning Masses.

For those unable to attend, we will also broadcast our virtual Mass on Sunday via Twitch TV and Facebook Live at 10:30 A.M.* (*please note the change in time.) Prior to attending our Mass, we ask that you kindly download and review the Parishioner Reopening Guide “Tips For All Worshipers: What To Expect” accessible below. We thank you for your continued patience and understanding during this time as we strive to keep each member of our community safe.
Parish Reopening Team Volunteer Form
We are still actively recruiting additional volunteers to help staff our Greeting and Cleaning teams. We currently have approximately 39 volunteers that have kindly stepped forward, which is truly a blessing. Ideally, we would like to have a pool of 50 total volunteers to spread between our 2 teams (as the more volunteers we have to rely upon, the less burden that will be placed upon each one individually.) If you would like to volunteer to assist us with our reopening, please complete our Parish Reopening Team Volunteer Form located below. Thank you and may God bless you!

Video Greeting From Fr. Matt, Our New Pastor!
We are truly pleased to announce that our Associate Pastor, Fr. Matthew Heinrich, has been appointed by Cardinal Cupich as our new Pastor at Immaculate Conception Parish! We look forward with great joy to continuing our journey of parish renewal with Fr. Matt (who joined our parish family nearly two years ago in July of 2018) as he assumes leadership of our parish as of July 1st. Although our hearts are saddened by Fr. Robert's departure as our Pastor, we feel confident that our parish is being left in the best of hands, and for that we feel truly blessed.
With truly grateful hearts, we thank Fr. Robert for faithfully shepherding our parish family for the past three years. We thank him for his love, his inspiring and passionate dedication to God and to our parish, as well as for his tireless work ethic throughout our ongoing parish renewal process. We warmly wish him all the best as he begins his next adventure as Administrative Secretary to the Cardinal! Fortunately, Fr. Robert has also graciously agreed to continue assisting us with our Masses as our Weekend Assistant, so he will still remain a part of our parish family, and for that we are doubly blessed.
IC welcomes our new Associate Pastor, Fr. Robert Carlton!
We are truly pleased to announce that Fr. Robert Carlton has been assigned by Cardinal Cupich to serve IC as our new Associate Pastor, effective as of Saturday, July 18th! As you may recall, Fr. Robert spent his pastoral year with us during his time as a transitional Deacon (prior to his Ordination to the Priesthood on May 18th of last year.) He celebrated his first Mass as an ordained priest at our parish prior to joining the staff at St. John Brebeuf, where he has faithfully served their community for the past year. During that time, we were also blessed to have him maintain an active presence at IC, frequently assisting us with our 6:00 P.M. evening Mass on Sundays as well as our School Assembly Masses on Wednesdays at 8:30 A.M., so it is with grateful hearts that we look forward to welcoming him back into our parish family as a full-time member of our pastoral staff and continuing our ongoing collaboration with him. Please keep Fr. Robert in your prayers as he transitions into his new role at our parish in the days ahead.
New Weekend Mass Schedule
As we continue in Phase 2 of our reopening process, we intend to gradually expand our Mass schedule during the month of July (thanks to the kind assistance of volunteers from our IC community.) Please click here to review our special announcement regarding our new weekend Mass schedule (which originally appeared in our July 5th bulletin.) We thank you for your continued patience and prayers and we joyfully look forward to our parish family rejoining us for our celebration of the Eucharist!
