Vocations, Symbols, and School

With the 90th anniversary of our parish on the horizon, it is a great time to look back at the people and events that helped us reach this milestone.

We recently added two pages to the history collection here on ickenmore.org.  The first of these outlines the meanings behind many of the symbols that decorate the interior of our church. Our second is a page dedicated to the  individuals from Immaculate Conception who have answered God’s call to serve.

Although not a part of our website, there is a growing community of Immaculate Conception School alumni on Facebook.  With nearly 200 members, they are preserving memories of our old school through stories and photographs.

Video: Production

Our technology Team has been hard at work finding ways to make effective use of technology for parish communication. Bart Eggert recently suggested animoto.com as a simple video production tool. Our non-profit application has been accepted, which means Animoto.com will provide our church with a free account.

This is our first sample video.
