As a parish, we are committed to working together to make Jesus Christ known, loved and served in our families, throughout the Hibbing community and in the world. We are also committed to live as the Lord taught, drawing inspiration from the scriptures and strength from the sacraments, especially the Eucharist. Our parish strives to nurture spiritual growth, share the gifts God has given us, and invite others into a relationship with Christ.
We are One Body, One Spirit in Christ.

Immaculate Conception Church Closure
Immaculate Conception Church Closure:
Following our Parish analysis, the Town Hall Meetings (April 30th and June 4th) and the results from our parish survey, we announce:
Effective June 4th, 2019 our parish has begun the process and procedure for the closing of Immaculate Conception Church.
Thanks to Teri McKusky, Jim Dropp and Dennis Seguin for serving as a Taskforce Committee for the closure. This committee will ensure diocesan and civil procedures are followed. They will take any input or suggestions you may have.
We are all aware that this closure is spiritually and emotionally painful. During the process let us be sensitive to one another and support each other with prayer.
Closing Mass is proposed for Dec 8th, 2019 with the first 8am Mass at Blessed Sacrament Church celebrated on Dec 15th, 2019.
Please feel free to contact me or the committee regarding this significant change in our parish. I thank you everyone for your input and contribution to our process. I count on your prayers and assure you of my prayers. May the Immaculate Heart of Mary guide us in this process.
