Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception

Diocese of Syracuse.

In 1904, “Old” St. Mary’s, the oldest church in the diocese of Syracuse, and originally constructed in 1874 by Lawrence J. O’Connor, was selected to replace St. John’s as the Cathedral of the diocese.

The Cathedral is built in the Neo-Gothic style prevalent in the late 19th century and boasts a magnificent Tiffany window in the back wall of the sanctuary, above the High Altar.
