Welcome

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.



Welcome Fr. Jeremy Bock

I am grateful to be returning to Hibbing to serve you as one of your priests. I have many fond memories as a seminarian from my first assignment in the summer of 2015 where my main focus was to just get to know the people and their needs. The following summer of 2016, I received the unexpected news that I would be returning to Hibbing for my summer assignment as a transitional deacon.  This meant for me that Hibbing was the place that I began the life of ministry.  I was able to baptize a child for the first time, preside for the first time at a funeral, and grow in my ability to preach. So don’t be surprised if I remember you! Having these fond memories of Hibbing makes it easier to transition from the people and places that I have come to know and love during my assignment in Duluth at the Cathedral, St. Mary’s Star of the Sea, and Stella Maris Academy.  

 

God has been good to me in my previous assignments here in Hibbing and I look forward to seeing what God has in store. I will now have the opportunity to see what life in Hibbing is like in the other three seasons of the year and to see Assumption School while it is in session. I look forward to getting to know all of you and learning from you, as I help Fr. Gabriel to serve you here in Hibbing. 

- Fr. Jeremy Bock

Please join us Sunday (July 21st) following the 10am Mass in St. Leo's Hall for a welcome reception for Fr. Jeremy!

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.

 

Fr. Gabriel
