Good Friday is a day of Fast and Abstinence.
Fasting practices —those between the ages of 18 and 59 are obliged to FAST— one full meal a day is allowed with two lesser meals and only liquids in-between meals.
Abstinence practices—those 14 years of age and older are obliged not to eat meat on the days appointed.
(If, due to medical reasons you cannot fast, the regulation does not apply to you.)

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.
