We strive to further the call of Jesus to be of service to others through being a caring community, reaching out locally and globally to those in need.

Starting next January (2021), Immaculate Conception is pleased to offer Jesus: The Way, the Truth, and the Life, a 10-week video-based bible study program. Anchored in the life of Christ as presented in the Gospels, this study explores the entirety of Jesus’ life—who he is, what he is really like, what he taught, what he did for our salvation, and what all of this means for us as Catholics today.
Presented by Dr. Marcellino D’Ambrosio, Jeff Cavins, and Dr. Edward Sri, this study was filmed in the Holy Land so Catholics can experience the extraordinary world in which Jesus lived and taught—the historical context, the politics, the clashing cultures, the history, and the ancient land—and see where the most significant events of his life took place, from his infancy to his ascension. Most importantly, this encounter with Christ will inspire and empower you to center your entire life in him as you come to know and love him in an ever-deeper and more intimate way.
DATES/TIMES: January 10 to March 14, 2021 / Sunday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m.
