We warmly welcome you to Immaculate Conception and St. Joseph Parish, a Catholic faith community located in Chicago’s Near North Side neighborhood. Our historic and diverse parish is an inviting “family of families,” blessed with two inspiring worship sites and committed to spreading the Gospel message of Jesus Christ through prayer and worship, spiritual stewardship, and our missionary spirit.
Parish News & Events
As of July 1, 2016, Immaculate Conception and St. Joseph are officially combined as one parish entity. Please click here to review three important things you should know at this time: our new name, a new way to write checks, and our new Main Parish Office.
From July 22 to August 3, St. Ita Parish will host the "Blessed Mother Teresa Exhibit of Love & Mercy." This amazing exhibit features over 75 full-color panels of her entire life story. A first class relic of Mother Teresa will also be on display. Come and explore this woman of God’s life and ministry as the Church prepares for her canonization in September 2016. Click here for more information.
This summer, Fr. McBrady invites the ICSJ community to consider reading “A River Runs Through It” by Norman Maclean, an unforgettable story of fishing, healing and reconciliation. It’s also an easy summer read at a little over 100 pages. This fall, there will be two optional opportunities for parishioners to gather to discuss the book.
This summer, Theology on Tap continues a Chicago tradition of beer, faith and fellowship for young adults engaged in their faith as well as those searching for answers to important life questions. Please refer to our July 10th Bulletin for a schedule of July topics & speakers, or contact Rebecca for more information.
Thank you to the ICSJ Choir and musicians for your incredible music ministry. The choir will take a summer break, and return after Labor Day. Have a blessed summer! (Interested in singing with our choir? Visit our Music Ministry page for more information.)
Please consider enrolling in our electronic giving program so your Sunday contributions to our parish remain uninterrupted when you're away. You can enroll for Give-Central on our Giving page. Thank you for your generosity and support to ICSJ!
This summer, our Scripture Study series will explore the Acts of the Apostles, an epic story filled with miracles, mayhem, resuscitations, and harrowing escapes! All parishioners are welcome; you can attend one session, or all twelve. Click here for more information.
With the increase in weddings at our parish, we are in the process of recruiting and training more Wedding Sacristans. Wedding sacristan assists at the wedding rehearsal and helps behind the scenes on the day of the wedding and offer sense of welcome and hospitality. If you are interested in this ministry, please call our Parish Office.
