Adult Confirmation Formation
ARE YOU A REGISTERED MEMBER OF THE PARISH?
You may come to Mass every Sunday, but are you a registered member of Immaculate Conception Church? At I.C., membership includes active participation in the sacramental life of the church, involvement in the activities of the faith community and financial support of the parish.
An adult child of a registered parishioner, after graduation from college, during their military service, or after moving out of town, is no longer a member of this parish. In order to schedule a wedding or baptism at Immaculate Conception—or to obtain permission to be a godparent or Confirmation sponsor—you must be registered in a parish. To schedule an appointment for registration or for more information call the parish office.
Download the Parish App
The new Parish App is a great and easy way to keep your Catholic faith alive throughout the day. Besides having information about our church and Mass times, there are daily scripture readings, videos of inspiring homilies, and so much more. Get ready to tell people, "I'm not texting, I'm praying!"
Text APP to 88202 to download our parish app. Download the app and then select our Parish after opening.
Couples celebrating 25, 50, 60 or 60+ years of marriage in 2019 are invited to attend the Annual Diocesan Anniversary Celebrations this summer. Bishop Persico will preside at both liturgies. During the liturgy, couples will receive an anniversary blessing and receive a scroll signed by the bishop. A light reception in the parish social hall will follow.
This year, the Anniversary Celebrations will be held at two locations in the Erie Diocese:
- Aug. 4 at 2 p.m., St. Catherine of Siena Parish, DuBois
- Aug. 25 at 2 p.m., Sacred Heart Parish, Erie.
A few weeks before the celebrations, wedding anniversary couples will receive a letter explaining all of the details for the day.
Couples may complete a registration form online at https://www.ErieRCD.org/familylifeoffice/anniv.html. Although the online method is preferred, you may print a hard copy of the registration form, which is available HERE. If not completed online, completed registration forms may be mailed to
