Today we learned that the Immaculate Conception Parish Church in Fountain City has been damaged by a fire. The Fountain City Fire Department, as well as six other area fire departments responded to the fire. No one was injured.
Until further notice, Mass will be celebrated in the Parish Life Center following the regular schedule. The Parish Life Center is located near the church at 2 North Wall Street.
While the structural integrity of the church was not damaged, there is considerable smoke damage. Clean-up efforts will begin once the investigation is complete.
Heartfelt thanks go out to all who helped during this incident. The work of the first responders, law enforcement, and the many others that came to protect the community and the building is greatly appreciated.
Please keep the faithful of Immaculate Conception Parish in your prayers during this time.
