Jesus Christ Is Born!

Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish in West Allis, Wisconsin is a parish of some 780 households, founded in June of 1948.

As a people of faith, we create a community explicitly conscious of the presence of Christ in all life.

Living this faith consciousness as sacrament of His presence we will proclaim, exemplify, and facilitate the growth of the Father's Kingdom.

We are a parish that emphasizes faith community. Our prayerful liturgies challenge us to deeper faith formation and committed community service in justice and peace.



We are glad you are here.

We welcome your comments and questions.

May your visit lead you to God's peace and blessings!
