Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, Syracuse

Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, Syracuse

The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception is the seat of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Syracuse.

The church was initially constructed in 1874 by Lawrence J. O’Connor and named Saint Mary's Church and became the first parish in Syracuse. In 1904, Bishop Patrick Ludden selected Saint Mary's Church to become the new Cathedral. Archimedes Russell was commissioned to expand the new Cathedral designing a new sanctuary and bell tower.

The Cathedral was consecrated in 1910 and for the dedication, Pope Leo XIII gave Bishop Ludden a brick taken from the Holy Door at St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome.

The Cathedral hosts many local musicals and concerts performed by both area schools and professional groups.
