Immaculate Conception is a full stewardship parish.

Stewardship is all about living our Baptismal call to discipleship.  It's about putting our faith into action, ever mindful that our Christianity is not a "spectator sport", but rather a call to full, conscious, and active participation in the mission and work of Christ through the Church.
