About Our Parish

The first Carmelite parish in the United States in the First City in Kansas: St. Joseph Church. The first Cathedral west of the Mississippi, founded by Jesuit Bishop Jean Baptist Miege: The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception.  Grown from the hearty stock of German and Irish immigrants to the United States in the mid-1800's, Immaculate Conception and St. Joseph Churches have continued to grow and deepen their roots in the Kansas soil.

Without any exaggeration, the people of immaculate Conception—St. Joseph Parish can claim to have one of the most significant parish histories of any Catholic community in the State of Kansas. What today is the Catholic community of Immaculate Conception—St. Joseph is really the outgrowth of four separate Catholic parishes in Leavenworth County: The Cathedral Parish of the Immaculate Conception, St. Joseph Carmelite Parish, Holy Epiphany Parish, and Sacred Heart Parish, Kickapoo.  Read more about our rich history
