Church of the Immaculate Conception, Maryhill, Glasgow
2049 Maryhill Rd, Glasgow G20 0AA
Although a modern church, the parish of the Immaculate Conception was founded in 1851 and is the 'mother church ' of North-West Glasgow.
We were originally founded to minister to Irish economic migrants fleeing the famine, who came to work on the nearby canal basin and locks.
Conscious of our origins, we are trying to create a parish that reaches out to the whole of Maryhill, now embracing 23 different nationalities.
We are a busy community with three excellent, teeming school, lots of families and many seniors who keep alive our history and memory.
While Covid19 has restricted our outreach and pastoral planning, we still take seriously the call to be a Vatican II community,
"A parish where all are welcome and none are judged".
