Changes in Leadership at IC

IC warmly welcomes Fr. Geoffrey Brooke and extends our deep thanks & best wishes to Fr. Cesar Anicama

Immaculate Conception Parish has received a new Associate Pastor, Fr. Geoffrey Brooke.  In addition to being Associate here at I.C., he will be the new Hispanic minister for the Jefferson City Hispanic community.   He has returned from studies in Rome and began his assignment here on July 16Welcome, Fr. Geoffrey!  We are glad to have you at I.C.!  


Fr. Cesar Anicama, with Bishop McKnight’s permission,  has applied to join the Society of St. James, an order of diocesan priests focused on missionary work. Joining this group as a priest in good standing of the Diocese of Jefferson City will give him the opportunity to minister in his home country of Peru. Fr. Cesar will be only a few hours from his family, where he feels he needs to be at this point. While his application is pending, Fr. Cesar’s new status is priest-in-residence which means, at least for the present, that he will be living and helping out here at I.C. and helping in the diocese as needed

and directed by Bishop McKnight.

Everyone is invited to join us on July 21-22 after Masses for receptions celebrating Fr. Cesar's two years of priestly service here at I.C. and to wish him well in his new calling.
