Retreat & Level 1 CGS Formation

We are blessed to have a rich, hands-on method of children’s formation based on Montessori pedagogy and Catholic theology called Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS). Not only is this the gold standard for nurturing the spiritual lives of children, it is also a profound spiritual experience for the adults who work with the children in the retreat-like environment called the atrium. We invite you to be formed in the religious life of children at our next retreat/course, June 9-15. While primarily intended for catechists, this formation will be a nourishing and contemplative experience for parents or anyone who wishes to learn more about the Mass and the Bible in light of what Jesus said about children: “Unless you become as little children, you cannot enter the kingdom of God” (Matthew 18:3).

Families Moving Forward Opportunities! 

Since 2016, Families Moving Forward (FMF) has been helping families with children who are experiencing homelessness in Durham. Through our Justice, Peace, and Integrity of Creation (JPIC) ministry, our parishioners have generously supported families in need in numerous ways. 

During the month of May, our parish will once again be hosting the Families Moving Forward "Barrel of Joy" Basket in our Church gathering space. This month, some specific items requested include: 

  • Dish Soap 
  • Sponges 
  • All-Purpose Cleaner / Pine-Sol 
  • Bodywash 

Our parishioners also provide a monthly dinner service four times a year at the agency. On Wednesday, May 01, Immaculate Conception’s Catholic Daughters will provide this service. More information can be found on our JPIC Families Moving Forward (FMF) webpage.

Thank you!

On behalf of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church’s Justice, Peace, and Integrity of Creation (JPIC), we thank you for supporting our 2024 Earth Day Fair!


This year’s Earth Day Celebration featured 16 displays prepared by various parish and community groups designed to help us learn more about how we can care for creation, protect our environment, and raise awareness of actions to protect our Common Home. Please visit our JPIC Earth Day Fair webpage to see a weekend slideshow!


We are especially grateful to our staff, planning committee, display/exhibit participants, and all those who helped make our Earth Day Fair such a fun and meaningful event for everyone in our parish. Thank you!

Immaculate Sponsor Opportunities

As we enter the third year of our newsletter, we are looking for businesses that may want to sponsor the Newsletter. Each week we send the Newsletter to 2,400 people. 66% of the people open the email (which is well above the average open rate). If you have a business and would like fellow parishioners to support you, why not take an ad as a sponsor? Experience has shown us that parishioners choose to support our sponsors. We have created a two-tier pricing option for interested businesses. Your business information will be in the Newsletter, on the website, and on the screen in the gathering space. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, contact Fabian and our team will be happy to help you to create your design.

Love Fund

Our Love Fund comes from our community. This couple is in their late 50s and both have experienced some severe health issues. 5 years ago the wife became disabled, has had to have several surgeries, and has another one scheduled next month. She has been unable to work. The husband was a trucker who had a car accident and had been out of work for five months. He is looking for work but their bills are accumulating and they do not want to fall further behind. Any help would be appreciated.
