Administrative History

The Immaculate Conception Blessed Virgin Mary Parish was founded in 1881 to serve a community of Catholic Polish immigrants in South Chicago, Illinois. The Parish soon founded a parochial school, opening in 1884. The congregation and the students met in a series of buildings until 1899 when the Immaculate Conception BVM Church was built at the corner of 88th Street and Commercial Avenue. In 1901, the school moved to its permanent location on the corner of 88th and Escanba. A permanent convent building was not constructed until 1957. Polish continues to be spoken at the Immaculate Conception Church.
