Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Historic Nacogdoches County



The Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Moral, a Mission of the Roman Catholic Diocese
of Tyler, Texas, is located off U.S. Highway 7 on County Road 724 in the Moral Community
on Spanish Bluff Road. An earlier church, built in 1872, was called Our Lady of the Pillar. This
was used until 1942 when a later church was constructed and called Immaculate Conception.15
There is a Sacred (devotional or figurative) Garden between the church building and the Immaculate
Conception Cemetery, seen here, consisting of the Church Bell, external memorial stones,
a seating area, a circle of wooden crosses and a small statue beneath the old oak tree. It is the only
rural church in Nacogdoches County to acknowledge, in this particular architectual manner, the
secular origins of the church.
