90th Anniversary Picnic Pictures!!!

The 90th Anniversary Picnic held August 19th, 2012 was a huge sucess.  Special thanks to the parish Pastoral Council for organizing the event and to all the wonderful stewards who donated their time, talent, and treasure to make this a fun-filled celebration for all.  The afternoon was filled with great food, fun and fellowship.  Take a look at the photos from the picnic!

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.
