We invite you to Visit Us for our Liturgies, Services, and for our Parish Events and join in our Mission:

Immaculate Conception Catholic Church celebrates the Eucharist and proclaims the gospel—in worship through our love of God and for each other and with our ministry to the marginalized. We journey together in our faith, united by our trust in Christ’s love and mercy and the powerful intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Thanks for visiting our website. Contact us if you need anything. God bless.

We attend and participate in the parish life of Immaculate Conception because it is a traditional and welcoming parish that reflects the wonderful diversity of the Ithaca community. You could say that Immaculate is a microcosm of the Ithaca community.

Adult Parishioner

We attend Immaculate Conception because we have found parents with whom to share the struggles and triumphs of raising children in the Catholic faith.
