Welcome to the Church of the Immaculate Conception! We are a Roman Catholic parish in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania within the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.
May is the month especially dedicated to our Blessed Mother. The Family Rosary this month is on Tuesday May 24th at 7:00 p.m. Praying the rosary is a wonderful Catholic devotional practice. Please come as a family and intercede to our Blessed Mother for all of your needs and those you love.  Afterwards, to kick off the summer season, members of our youth group are invited to partake in a friendly game of kickball in the parking lot of the school (weather permitting)  from 7:30pm until 8:30pm. 
Immaculate Conception Synod Survey
We begin a survey of parishioners to prepare for the Parish Synod to be held in the fall of this year. The link to the survey is below and paper copies will be available in the pews. Please complete the survey one time, either in the electronic form on line or the paper and pencil version available in the church. There will be a box in the vestibule for you to return the completed survey or simply put it through the mail slot in the rectory door. The results will be published as soon as the data is compiled. It will also serve as focus points in the Synod this fall.

Joint Letter To Congress: Support The Conscience Protection Act Of 2016
The link above contains important information from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) about a major development that could positively impact the pro-life movement in our country.  The USCCB joined twenty-five other major pro-life, religious, and health care organizations in urging the U.S. House of Representatives to pass the Conscience Protection Act of 2016 (H.R. 4828). Signatories include ten medical groups representing tens of thousands of health care professionals who object to abortion and are seeking legal protections that allow them to serve patients without violating their conscience.
Photo Book - Your Photos are needed
As part of our celebration of the sesquicentennial of the parish, we are hoping to assemble a book consisting of favorite family photos that have something to do with our church and a small paragraph describing why the picture is so treasured.  If you just have a story and no picture that could be submitted too but a picture is of course more interesting.  The following is an example from another parish of the kind of thing we are looking for.  Pictures must be very good copies, no originals.  We can’t guarantee that they will be returned.  If you can’t make a copy we could arrange to scan the picture.  Please submit the copy of the picture and the narrative to the Rectory. 

c. 1947  “The diamond had fallen out of my mother’s wedding ring some place between Communion and the parking lot (the ring was 57 years old). While looking for it, she said a prayer to St. Anthony and on her way out of church she spotted what looked like a pebble on the edge of the walkway in front of the rectory. When she turned it over it sparkled in the bright morning light!”
