Welcome to Immaculate Conception Parish, a Roman Catholic Church nestled in the beautiful mountains of Clarksburg, West Virginia.  We hope that our website provides you with the information you need to nurture and support your faith here in the parish and beyond.

If you are new to the parish we extend a special welcome to you and pray that you will find a warm home here. Please introduce yourself after Mass or feel free to stop by the Parish Office located in the Parish Hall directly behind the Church.

We invite all our parishioners to join fully in our life at Immaculate Conception Parish.  We serve the community through worship, outreach, education, social activities, sacramental preparation, and comfort to the sick and those who mourn.  Feel free to contact us if we may be of service to you in any way.

Very Rev. Casey B. Mahone, VF, Pastor

Diocesan News

This year instead of the “Catholic Sharing Appeal” the diocese is sponsoring a “Giving Tuesday” to be held on December 1, 2020.  In the past, the first half of a set goal of the “Catholic Sharing Appeal” went to subsidize diocesan offices (particularly Priests Retirement Fund, Catholic Charities and Catholic Schools).  This year all of the money collected from parishes can be returned to the parish.  In addition, all the money collected from the Giving Tuesday collection will be exempt from “cathedraticum,” the tax levied on parish incomes for the administration expenses of the diocese.  (If you choose to donate toward those beneficiaries formerly subsidized by the Catholic Sharing Appeal, you may still do so.)  Fr. Casey encourages parishioners to make an “end of the year donation” through the “Giving Tuesday” appeal.  You can support our parish by visiting dwc.org/GivingTuesday. Please prayerfully consider supporting our parish and/or the various shared ministries of our diocese on Giving Tuesday.
