 Introduction

The records of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, 1860 - 2001, were transferred for microfilming to the Center for Archival Collections, Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, Ohio 43403, in November 2001, with the cooperation of Father Robert A. Tucceri of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church.

The collection consists of baptisms*, first communions, confirmations, marriages*, interments and deaths. Due to inconsistencies in pagination and transcription of data, researchers are encouraged to refer to all volumes within each series. (See order of microfilming for a detailed list of these records.)

This register and this collection was prepared by Jennifer Golis in November 2001.

*There is a seventy (70) year access restriction on baptism and marriage records. No restrictions apply to the remainder of this collection.

 Agency History

The church of Immaculate Conception began in 1852 as a Station of Holy Angels Church in Sandusky. In 1860, Immaculate Conception began being served from St. Mary Catholic Church. In May of 1860, the parish purchased a framed warehouse and converted it into a church. With the purchase of the church building, the status of the parish was changed from a Station to a Mission.

In 1861, the parish received their first resident priest, Father James Monahan.

In 1881, the parish realized the need for a larger, more modern church. In 1884, the parish's second church was completed. This church had improvements made throughout the years, but in 1965 the parish's present church was completed.

Since 1852, the parish of Immaculate Conception has experienced steady growth in the size of their congregation.
