Interior Restoration of the
Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception


The spacious and soaring interior of the Cathedral has been repaired and renewed to its original artistic beauty. The main interior enhancements completed in 2010, feature improved seating, lighting, and plaster repair. The crowning achievement of the interior restoration is a magnificent paint scheme, evoking the original design of Patrick Charles Keely. The restored worship space brings a fresh vitality to the Cathedral's role as the center of Diocesan liturgy and community celebration.

On behalf of the Cathedral Parish Family, I thank you for visiting and pray that you will keep us, our Bishop and this historic edifice the, Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in your prayers.

Albany’s Diocesan Mother Church, The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, stands as a living testament to the storied history of the Catholic Church in America and to the devotion and commitment of our founders.

Today, over 150 years after its doors first opened, we, the inheritor’s and present day guardians of this magnificent artwork, must make a commitment to restore and renew the Cathedral, as our spiritual home.   

It is my hope and prayer that you will join with me and the many people who have so generously donated to preserve The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception.

Your gift will help to ensure that this magnificent structure will continue to stand for years to come as a glorious symbol of God’s enduring and powerful presence among us.
