Immaculate Conception offers several opportunities throughout the year for adults who would like to grow their faith.
ACTS - Easter Season Bible Study
Wednesdays from April 24th - June 5th | 7-8:30pm | San Damiano Trailer
We will join with the church throughout the world as we read the Book of Acts in the Easter Season. There is a particular interest in listening and noticing the ways that Acts invites us to re-examine our contemporary notions of inclusion, belonging, joining, and ask with fresh eyes what it means to organize our life together in response to the movement of the Holy Spirit.
We will use the Little Rock Bible Study, written by Dennis Hamm, SJ. Click here for details and to register.
New Young, Young Adult Group – Parishioners ages 16-20 are welcome to join a new group dedicated to those in search of God’s calling in church as well as in the community. Together we will share our faith, build relationships, discern our vocations and explore opportunities to serve. We meet in the Assisi Trailer, rm A+B, on Sundays from 3-5pm. Contact Dianna Macedo for more information.
Family Friendly Community Potlucks (NEW)
Interested in connecting with other families in the parish? Email Casey to be added to the group's mailing list and join in a time of feasting, fellowship, and family. We are just getting going, and aim to meet once a month on Fridays from 5:30-7:30.

The group of 5-12 people spends some time in silence & stillness, followed by deep listening to multiple readings of one of the upcoming Sunday Scripture texts. A different question prompts each period of listening and reflecting. Members share what each one hears and what action each is beckoned to take. The circle time is closed with prayer for each member as prompted by the Word that has been heard. Questions? Contact Laura Day.
