My Dear Parishioners and Friends,
Welcome to Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, located at 505 S. Ave B, Yuma, Arizona.
We are also celebrating the "miracle" of 150 years as a Parish with a beautiful church and newly renovated school which continue to serve all God's children in the Yuma community and beyond. Our story in this historic anniversary year of celebration is written in the hearts of all of our parishioners, past and present. We have so much to be grateful for, as we remember the contributions of so many of our beloved brothers and sisters who made possible the establishment of the Parish of Immaculate Conception in 1865 and those who have sustained its vital mission since.
Anniversary celebrations are important milestones in everyone's life. They give us the opportunity to remember the past, to celebrate the present, and to dream about the future. All of our memories of the church and school of yesteryear, our experiences now, and our hopes for our children and grandchildren all come together when we mark this 150th anniversary of Immaculate Conception.
God bless you all and thank you for your love and devotion to Immaculate Conception Parish! With a father's care, I am Faithfully yours in Christ,
Father Javier Perez, Pastor of Immaculate Conception Vicar Forane of Yuma/LaPaz Vicariate
