WELCOME TO IMMACULATE CONCEPTION PARISH!
We are a Roman Catholic Church located at 113 N. Geneva Street in Ithaca, NY. Whether you are a long-time parishioner or a first time visitor, we’re glad you are here. 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. Please join us!

The Parish Center (Office) is Closed on Fridays, which is also Fr. Chumo’s day off. Please try to conduct your business with the office Monday— Thursday.
May Crowning will take place after the 4:30pm Mass on Saturday, May 1st.
St. Joseph Candle weekly Intentions are now available at the Parish Office for a suggested donation of $5. Those interested may request a special intention for their specific need. The intention will be published on our online parish bulletin, and the candle will be lit at the statue of St. Joseph. The practice will remain in place for the entire year of St. Joseph. As the saying goes “Need anything! Go to Joseph.” May Christians, looking at this great Saint, learn to witness in every working environment to the love of Christ, the source of true solidarity and lasting peace.

We thank you in advance for your help in this regard.
We are planning to get together the second Saturday of the month at 9:00am to clean the church (mopping, cleaning of pews). Our next cleaning date is on May 8th. Come and join in keeping the church clean and pretty! All supplies will be provided. Anyone and everyone is welcome to participate!
Please return your Lenten collection bags to benefit Catholic Charities, and place them in the collection baskets when you come to Mass or return them to the Parish Office. Thank you for your generosity!
The Memorial Day holiday brings us to thinking about not only those who gave their lives in service to our country, but also our own loved ones who have passed away. It may also be a time of reflection about your own final arrangements.
Calvary Cemetery is one of the largest cemeteries in our area. Although it is most recognized as a Catholic cemetery, we welcome members of all Christian faiths. The Immaculate Conception Parish takes pride in its well kept cemetery. You are invited to come for a visit, and to spend time in peaceful prayer. (View images on Our Cemeteries page here.)
We understand that making the decision of the final resting place for you and your family is often difficult. Our staff is experienced and compassionate in guiding families through this process. To assist in this planning, and as a cost saving opportunity, Calvary Cemetery will discount all Cemetery Plots and Mausoleum Crypts 10% during the month of May. We look forward to meeting you, and being of assistance.
For availability, prices, and further information, please contact Mike Moravec, Cemetery Manager, at 607-272-5780 or Mike.Moravec@dor.org.
Respect Life resources and other resources for the community are available on this page.

“Please, don’t give up on them.” -a former inmate speaking to a jail ministry on behalf of her incarcerated friend. America’s rate of incarceration is greater than any other nation’s in the world; although our country has 5% of the world’s population, it has 25% of its prisoners. Sentence length and time served are much longer in the US than elsewhere, and include more solitary confinement, less rehabilitations, and poor re-entry assistance.
As we continue to struggle with our own confinements during the pandemic, let us deepen our understanding of the sufferings of our incarcerated sisters and brothers and pray to know how we can best care for them. In the coming weeks of this Easter Season, our Diocesan Public Policy Committee will be providing further information and assistance to parishes in these efforts.
Thank you so much for those who have contributed to this appeal. We kindly appeal to those who are yet to make a contribution to do so. It would be wonderful to make our goal during the Easter season.
If you did not get your envelope for this Catholic Ministries Appeal (CMA) kindly call the parish office (607-273-6121) for assistance. We thank you in advance for your support.
