Warm greetings to you and your family from the entire community of Immaculate Conception Parish, Somerville, New Jersey.  In addition to the priests and deacons listed above, you will find a fuller list of ministry leaders under the navigation prompt, Contact Us.

We are here to serve you and we hope to get to know you personally.  This website will give you some idea of who we are and the ministry we provide.  We invite you to come and worship with us and share your gifts with this community.

Our goal is to enter into a deep personal relationship with God through the Eucharist, prayer and compassionate outreach to those in need.  Education is at the heart of our mission; both academic formation of children and teenagers in our catholic schools and life-long catholic formation of children and adults.  We offer many opportunities for scripture study and study of The Catechism of the Catholic Church.  This website will inform you and put you in touch with ministry leaders.

We invite you to help us create a more Christ-centered, Spirit-filled and service oriented parish which will be a beacon of faith, hope and love in society today.

Sincerely in Christ,
Msgr. Seamus F. Brennan





                       From the Desk of the Pastor




Dear Parishioners,


               I was recently notified by Sister Mary Ellen Tennity, General Superior of the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (IHM), that the Sisters, who have been a part of the Immaculate Conception family since 1957, will be reassigned from our community as of June 2019. Sister Mary Ellen explained that the number of religious Sisters available for the order’s many commitments has diminished, necessitating consolidations that limit the number of convents and schools where they are assigned.

While we will deeply miss the Sisters, the strong Catholic foundation they built will continue to serve our schools well into the future. Thanks to their charism, firm commitment to Jesus Christ and their daily devotion to Mary Immaculate, we will retain an enduring and visible Catholic identity, a continued commitment to prayer, regular participation by the school community in the sacraments, and the highest standards of academic excellence. Our schools will continue to flourish.

The IHM Sisters have served generations of Immaculate Conception and Immaculata families, and we will pay them fitting tribute before the school year ends. Those currently assigned to our schools serve in a variety of roles, and we are most grateful for their many years of loving, dedicated, faithful service to our children, and their great witness to faith in Somerville and the surrounding communities. In particular, I want to express my deepest thanks to Sister Mary Chapman, Principal, Immaculate Conception School, for her leadership. The resultant need for new elementary school leadership will be immediately addressed in order to provide continuity. Immaculata High School has been under lay leadership for the past 5 years. The Sisters have committed to continue to pray for us, and I have assured them of our continued prayers for them. We will forever hold them lovingly in our hearts.  Click here for the IHM letter from the Mother Superior.
