Fr. Ronald J. Minner was named Pastor of The Immaculate Conception Parish on June 15, 2021.

July 1, 2020, the two Catholic congregations in Jim Thorpe came together as one when St. Joseph Parish was consolidated into Immaculate Conception Parish. Both church buildings will remain open and will use the existing Mass schedule. Father James Ward, will remain as pastor. Operating the two parishes as one will benefit the newly combined congregation by providing the parish with the potential for reduced operating costs and more efficient operations through better use of resources. The consolidation recommendation of Father Ward was reviewed by the Diocesan Council of Priests and the Diocesan Pastoral Planning Commission, which likewise recommended the action to Bishop Alfred Schlert.

Immaculate Conception Parish was founded in 1848 to serve the needs of God’s people in this beautiful area. We are a vibrant parish family, grateful to God. We do today- what we have been doing for over 150 years-we welcome into our family all who come to us. We proclaim the love and the mercy and the concern of our God for all people. We provide a parish community in which people can come together to worship and love their God and to find a fellowship with each other that is truly warm and inviting. We delight in passing on our precious Faith to our children who are the future.

Mary Immaculate Patroness of Our Country Pray for Us 

from your provident hand we have received our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
 You have called us as your people and given us the right and the duty to worship you,
the only true God, and your Son, Jesus Christ.
Through the power and working of your Holy Spirit,
you call us to live out our faith in the midst of the world,
bringing the light and the saving truth of the Gospel to every corner of society.
We ask you to bless us in our vigilance for the gift of religious liberty.
Give us the strength of mind and heart to readily defend our freedoms when they are threatened;
 give us courage in making our voices heard on behalf of the rights of your Church
and the freedom of conscience of all people of faith.
Grant, we pray, O heavenly Father, a clear and united voice to all your sons and daughters
gathered in your Church in this decisive hour in the history of our nation,
so that, with every trial withstood and every danger overcome—
 for the sake of our children, our grandchildren, and all who come after us—
 this great land will always be “one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
