Most Reverend Joseph E. Strickland, Bishop of Tyler, is assisting Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Jefferson, Texas with the development of a Marian Center of Eucharistic Devotion.  As we approach August 15th, the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven, Immaculate Conception Parish announces a special Rosary to be prayed at the Church at 11:00 AM.

The Rosary will be prayed in Latin (booklets will be provided) in order to welcome people of all languages to join together in this beautiful prayer. The public is invited to join us as part of our prayer celebration of the Feast of the Assumption.  All are encouraged to watch for other opportunities to join us, again, in prayer in the coming months.


Immaculate Conception Catholic Church is located at 201 North Vale Street, Jefferson, Texas. The church email address is for further information.
