Who we are

Immaculate Conception is a community of 1,600 households and 4,500 members. We are located in Columbia Heights, a first-ring suburb of Minneapolis in the state of Minnesota. We are a parish community within the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis.

The Church of the Immaculate Conception was formally established in 1923. From the outset, Monsignor Rolwes and the founding community placed a high emphasis on spiritual life, commitment to ministry, and generosity. Monsignor Lapinski served IC for 32 years and built the church and school. Along with the Sisters of St. Francis he ushered IC into and beyond Vatican II. Within our parish community, they instilled a passion for worship, dedication to the school ministry, commitment to parish community life, and a consistent pattern for giving.

These values are part of our life each day even now. Our history suggests that we are spiritually mature, dedicated to faith and the parish, a neighborly community, and a wonderfully generous community at all levels with our time, talent, and treasure. These are the gifts of our heritage, part of our uniqueness.

Immaculate Conception is a very dynamic and caring parish! More than 1,000 households make a yearly commitment to share their treasure. And with 75 parish ministries, 1,200 shared (volunteer) ministers willingly share their time and talent. In addition to stewardship, Immaculate Conception includes as core values a commitment to quality liturgy, Catholic education, and caring for one another.

History of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, Columbia Heights MN

Early Years (1918-1924) of Immaculate Conception Church, Columbia Heights

In 1918, early settlers in the Village of Columbia Heights visited Archbishop Dowling and asked him to establish a Catholic parish in Columbia Heights. Before our parish was established, Catholics in this area would travel to nearby parishes such as St. Clement, St. Boniface, St. Anthony or Our Lady of Lourdes to celebrate Mass and the other sacraments. By 1923 there were enough Catholic families in Columbia Heights and they had saved up enough money to build a church, so Archbishop Dowling agreed to establish a parish here. Archbishop Dowling sent Rev. George Rowles to be the first pastor of the new parish of Immaculate Conception. The first public Mass was of Immaculate Conception Parish was celebrated on Saturday, December 8, 1923, in the unused dance hall at the old Forrest Park amusement grounds on 40 th Avenue NE and 7 th Street NE thanks to an offer by its owner, Mr. Kamm.

The men of the parish made the necessary changes to the hall, and Masses were celebrated there until April 1924 when they were moved to the movie house which was also on the amusement grounds. In 1924, Father Rowles bought 14 lots bounded by 40 th Avenue NE, Quincy St. NE, 41 st Ave. NE and Jackson St. NE. The construction of the new church began in the Spring of 1924. By July 1924 Masses were celebrated in the basement of the uncompleted church. On December 8, 1924, the new church was dedicated by Archbishop Dowling. The new church cost $41,000 to build, and it consisted of an upper hall with a seating capacity of 400 people for Mass and a lower hall (basement) for Sunday school classes and parish meetings. The original church is now our school auditorium (upper hall) and our school cafeteria (lower hall).
