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.

Join our own Fr. Larry McBrady for an Easter "Morning of Reflection" on Saturday, April 22nd, 8:30 a.m. at St. Joseph Church. The morning will focus on the many powerful post-resurrection stories that invite us to a new and better understanding of our present relationship with Jesus Christ. Hope you can join us!
Throughout the season of Lent we will be collecting food for our Parish Food Pantry and for our Sharing Parish, Assumption, BVM. Much of what we collected before Christmas has been distributed, so our shelves are running low. You can fill one of our special grocery bags – found at the back of each church – with non-perishable grocery items, then return it to church any time during Lent. We grateful for your donation!
