About Our Parish
Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, Cottonwood, AZ

In 1887 the first Catholic parish in the Verde Valley was founded. This church was Holy Family in Jerome and served the people of Jerome, Clarkdale, Clemenceau and Cottonwood.

As the Catholic family grew new churches were established: St. Cecilia Mission in Clarkdale in 1924, and Immaculate Conception Parish in Cottonwood 6 years later in 1930.

As times changed and the mines were closed, Immaculate Conception became the primary church in the valley with St. Cecilia serving as its mission. In the late 1990’s both churches outgrew the rapid population growth in the valley. The Diocese of Phoenix purchased enough land to build a new church, grade school and high school. A temporary church in portable buildings was constructed and opened in 2002.

Ground breaking for a new church building on the ground took place in December 2007 and construction started in the summer of 2008. The new church was dedicated on December 8, 2009, the feast of the Immaculate Conception. On December 8, 2010 we celebrated our first anniversary with Bishop Olmsted celebrating Mass.

Who We Are:

We are a broad based multi-culture parish community serving Clarkdale, Cornville, Cottonwood, Jerome, and other outlying areas of the Verde Valley of Arizona. We welcome everyone to our Parish and services.

I believe

As Catholics' or universal Christians, we are members of the Roman Catholic Church instituted by Jesus Christ, led by the apostles and their successors for over 2,000 years and strengthened through the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Catholics are called to live their faith throughout their day-to-day activities as well as spread the Good News of Jesus Christ.

We are united by our common beliefs which are set forth in our statement of beliefs, the Nicene Creed. This creed was established in 325 A.D. and is proclaimed as our statement of faith, during the Mass, by the assembly. (CCC, 198)

I believe

The Nicene Creed

I believe in one God,
the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all things visible and invisible.

I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the Only Begotten Son of God,
born of the Father before all ages.
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation
he came down from heaven,
and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary,
and became man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate,
he suffered death and was buried,
and rose again on the third day
in accordance with the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory
to judge the living and the dead
and his kingdom will have no end.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.

I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church.
I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins
and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead
and the life of the world to come.

Rosary at Chaplet of the Divine Mercy

Daily Rosary

Please join us at the church, to pray the rosary for the repeal of the bill recently passed by the Dept. of HHS to force all employers to offer health coverage that includes sterilization, abortion inducing drugs and contraception.

Join us in prayer so that this threat to religious liberty and rights of conscience will never be allowed.

The Rosary will be prayed Monday through Friday at 12:00 Noon in the church. If you cannot make it to the church, perhaps you can get your neighbors to join you in the rosary at your home.

 Where two or more are gathered in my name, I am in their midst.  
Matthew 18:20
