Remarkably diverse Catholic community. Great place to see Jesus' words of caring and welcoming to ALL; not just welcoming to those that look like me. Seeing Jesus in those that are different is demonstration that the church is the living body of Christ. Each Mass time has a slightly different feel from the music to the flow.

In my recent travels over a 6-state area and attempts to find a comparable church, FEW churches I've encountered in this region or around the country come as close to promoting clear, conscious, and daily action in concert with a "What Would Jesus Do?" guideline. THIS church DOES, and I always stop in when I return to the area.
It's active social ministries are laudable, it's successful engagement and involvement of a true cross-section of Durham makes it attractive to families who want their children to offer more than lip service to the ideals of brotherhood among all people.
The newer, scandinavian-inspired church structure is not lavish, but modestly (and appropriately) attractive and comfortable with ample wheelchair access. The school is well-known for academics, and the new Emily Krzyzewski Women's Center (founded by parishoner and Duke head basketball coach, Mike) offers women of the area a place for refuge and support. With it's consistent support for the Durham Rescue Mission and several missionary efforts in struggling populations of other countries, Immaculate Conception makes a strong anchor for Durham's moral conscience.
