Immaculate Conception Catholic Church is dedicated to faithful service to members of the parish, the diverse ethnic groups of Cedar Rapids, and the larger body of Christ in the downtown neighborhoods of the city.
Flocknote introduces a smarter way for parishes to text message and email their members. As a Flocknote church, we will be able to reach all of you at a moment's notice, in your inboxes and via text message. There’s nothing for you
to download or pick up after church.
By organizing our church into different groups and ministries on Flocknote, we can get information to exactly who needs it at the right time! Plus, you will be able to reply directly to any email or text message you receive via
Flocknote, vote in polls, RSVP to events, and more! Interested?
Experience the Holy Spirit like never before through physical, mental, and spiritual healing.
This trip is for those seeking healing: physical,
emotional, or spiritual. Dr. Issam Nemeh is a
Catholic medical doctor who prays . . . and miracles
happen! He gives the entire credit to God for all
healings. Dr. Nemeh has given his life to God,
and he is truly an instrument of the Holy Spirit.

Do you have Catholic books, CDs, DVDs, prayer cards, rosaries, or other devotional materials that you aren't using and would like to donate to our parish? If so, our upcoming Catholic Media Exchange is a great opportunity for you! Please drop off your items at the I.C. parish office before October 25. These items will be displayed on tables in the Grotto the following weekend for other parishioners to take home for free. So start your fall cleaning and “pay it forward” with your Catholic materials to help others grow in their faith and draw closer to Christ!
