The Catholic Community at Ithaca College


TWITTER: @ICCatholic

We, a campus parish of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Rochester, New York, are a faith community whose mission is to help students, and all who come to us, discover the spirit, joy, and love of God in everyday life.

Our Director of Campus Ministry, Father Carsten P. Martensen, S.J., leads the community with the assistance of the student-led Visioning Team and other student volunteers.  His office and the office of the student interns are located on the lower level of Muller Chapel, on either side of the small Eucharistic meditation chapel.  Fr. Carsten and the interns enjoy impromptu visits and are available to listen, dialogue, and socialize.  Stop in and say hello!

We hope you will feel comfortable exploring what the Catholic Community at Ithaca College has to offer.  As a faith community, we are enriched by your presence.  May you experience God's love and grace during your time here at Ithaca College.
