St. Mary's Immaculate Conception
Catholic Church

Immaculate Conception Catholic Church
503 Grand Ave.
Waukegan, IL

Waukegan Daily Sun, 8 Sep 1902

The church on County Street was the scene of one of the grandest sights ever witnessed in Waukegan, as dozens of men, women and boys who for months past have been preparing for the important ceremony, filed down the aisle to receive the blessing of the high priests.
The fact that it was the first confirmation to take place in St. Mary's church for eight years, made it an event which drew attention of Catholics from all over the county.
The Rt. Rev. Bishop Muldoon arrived in Waukegan at 3:05 o'clock going at once to the rectory of St. Mary's church.
Accompanying the bishop were the following priests who assisted him in the impressive service:

Father F. Henneberry, Chicago
Father E.A. Kelly, Chicago
Father P. Conway, Chicago
Father T. Kearney, Chicago
Father John J. Bowen, Chicago
Father S. Maloney, Chicago
Father Madden, Highland Park
Father Morrisey, Highland Park
Father O'Reiley, Lake Forest
Father Scanlon, Libertyville
Father Lubsy, North Chicago
Father Verhalen, Waukegan
Father Smolenski, Waukegan
