As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace.

Rev. Augustine Chumo


Theme: From Little to Large Tree
The tree comes from a little seed as we read in the gospel, or a small shoot as we read from the first reading. This is how the kingdom of God develops in us: it begins like the little seed, the Word of God. It is not loud/noisy, not showy, but it grows, it produces fruit and transforms us. With this parable Jesus wants to emphasize the difference between the smallness of the beginning and the greatness of the results. The message of this parable is: the kingdom of God comes into the heart of a person as a little seed. It seems insignificant, and easy to destroy. But Jesus assures us that in spite of insignificance, it will grow beyond our wildest imagination. The second reading shows the culmination of this. At the end of our lives we will see the person we have become. The day will mark the beginning of new lives with Christ.

An Efficacious Novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Saint Padre Pio recited this novena every day for all those who requested his prayers.

Blessed through Staff.
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.
We attend Immaculate Conception because we have found parents with whom to share the struggles and triumphs of raising children in the Catholic faith.
Immaculate Conception Parish has been our home for over 10 years. We love the vibrant and prayerful community and the service oriented mindset.
