Pastor: Father Chumo

Father Augustine Chumo is our Pastor and was born in Kenya. He has made our parishioners’ relationship with Jesus his main priority (along with teaching us Swahili)! Father Chumo has a warm and welcoming spirit, and immediately puts one at ease. His favorite scripture passage is:

I am the vine, and you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.
~John 15:5

My name is Fr. Augustine Chumo. I was born and raised in Kenya, East Africa. I came to the U.S. in 2006. I am grateful to the Bishop and the good people of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Rochester for the opportunity to serve in this diocese.

What a privilege for me to be pastor of this great parish! Immaculate Conception is a good place to grow in faith and love of God. Members of this parish, are faith-filled. They are devoted to our Lord in the Eucharist and the Blessed Virgin Mary.  The generosity of time, talent, energy, possessions and the care for one another’s needs is tremendous.

All are welcome to join us for the Eucharistic celebrations and fellowship.
Contact me if you need anything.
