About Immaculate Conception Church
The Church of the Immaculate Conception was founded in 1856 as a mission of St. Peter's Church in Belleville, New Jersey. In 1864 it was established as a separate parish. The first church was a frame building on Elm Street, which served the parish until 1892. In 1907 the present church was completed. It was restored and renovated in 1995, with the aid of a grant from the New Jersey Historic Trust. On the eve of the 150th anniversary of its founding, Immaculate Conception serves more than 1,000 Catholic families in Montclair and surrounding towns.
