Welcome to Immaculate Conception - Wexford website. We have provided this website in hope that you may learn more
about our parish and our faith.
Immaculate Conception - Wexford, is located
in rural northeast Iowa in the rolling hills of Allamakee County. The parish
was established in 1851 by Irish priest Rev. Thomas Hore. Father Hore brought
seventeen families to the valley which reminded them of their homeland in
County Wexford, Ireland. Over the last 160 years, the Irish heritage has
remained strong with Christian values, ideals and care of the surrounding land.
Since November 2010, Wexford Immaculate
Conception Parish has been linked with St. Ann St. Joseph - Harpers Ferry, St.
Joseph - New Albin and Immaculate Conception - Lansing ending 159 years of
having a resident pastor.
Come visit and join us in honoring the presence of God in each of us.
May the sun shine, all day long,
everything go right, and nothing wrong.
May those you love bring love back to you,
and may all the wishes you wish come true!
The Irish are known for their hearty meals. From
time to time a recipe that has been handed down through the generations
or a more recent one will be posted here.
We, the parishioners of Immaculate Conception, Wexford, take the deep
rooted faith of our ancestors that established our parish over 150
years ago. We will use that faith to bring praise and honor to God by
using our gifts and talents to serve God and God’s people with the help
of the Holy Spirit.
We live the Gospel by sharing faith, promoting love, reconciling
differences and accepting all as equal and created by God. We
incorporate all these things in our parish, our community and our world
to continue what Jesus taught us and to help all people reach heaven
