Hello! My name is Erika Vrabel-Linsdell and I am the person behind the voice you hear when you call the Parish Office! I was born in Ithaca and grew up attending Immaculate Conception. After high school I spent many years in Salzburg, Austria where I attended a Music Conservatory and worked at a travel agency leading “Sound of Music” tours! I still speck in German with my mother – old habits are hard to break.

After many years of living in Austria, N.C and Michigan, I moved back to Ithaca in 2013 with my husband to be closer to family. I am so honored to be able to interact with Parishioners and keep the office running in my old home Parish! I have been involved with the church for most of my life as a liturgical musician and am able to also utilize those talents at Immaculate, and around town.

When I’m not working for the church, I enjoy spending time ballroom dancing with my husband, helping out as Special Olympics Equestrian Coach, and helping run our “farm” with dogs, cats, numerous chickens, turkeys, and peacocks! You’ll most likely find many of our peacock feathers adorned in the front office.
