The Catholic Community at Ithaca College


TWITTER: @ICCatholic

We, a campus ministry 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 a professional mission and ministry team. All of the Catholic offices are located on the lower level of Muller Chapel, on either side of the small Eucharistic meditation chapel.  We all enjoy impromptu visits and meeting new people. Whether you're new to Ithaca College or have been here for a while, Muller Chapel is a place where you are always welcome. Feel free to come over and say hi!

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.
