Welcome to Immaculate Conception Church! We are a Roman Catholic Church located at 113 N. Geneva Street in Ithaca, NY. This is where we gather to meet as brothers and sisters to worship and encounter our Lord Jesus Christ. We strive to make our parish a community of God’s love and communion of hearts.

This Sunday

Sunday’s Responsorial Psalm:
“Lord, send out your Spirit, and renew the face of the earth.”


During these Times

Prayer of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there, and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

Novena to the Holy Spirit (May 22-30)

On May 22nd we begin as a parish praying the Novena to the Holy Spirit. Acts chapter 2 tells us that the Apostles were gathered together after the Ascension and on the Day of Pentecost they were all together in one place. Even though in these times we are not physically together, by making a concerted effort to get our parish together in prayer we can do something similar to the first Apostles. Please join us in praying this novena (reading) and (prayer) between now and Pentecost Sunday.

New Online Spiritual Resources

During this time of Eucharistic fasting and inability to come together as a spiritual community, you can find a list of resources at this direct link and under our website menu title “Resources”.

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.
