The Immaculate Conception R.C. Church is a historically significant structure in the heart of the village of Hoosick Falls, NY. Its airy interior, artistic stained glass windows, and pipe organ have been an inspiration to churchgoers, and an acoustic gem for choral performances for decades. Its majestic façade and cross-topped steeple reaching above the village skyline towards the heavens defines the religious district—home to historic churches of other denominations. Its chimes peal throughout the village reminding us to keep faith in our hearts. Built as early as 1869, and expanded through the generosity of parishioners over generations, it has a history of defining and serving both our religious and broader community foundations for well over a century. After a series of recent challenges, including significant flooding of the basement in June 2017, the Immaculate Conception Church was shuttered in lieu of remediation and repair and is now in jeopardy of demolition. This would leave a visible open wound in the heart of our village and more importantly in the hearts of those who’ve considered this church an integral and inspirational part of their lives.

For the survival of our parish and our community, this must not be allowed to happen.

We the undersigned believe the Immaculate Conception Church is an important and historic structure that is the body to the souls who worship there, past benefactors, former communicants and villagers who have moved away, those who wish to keep the church district intact, and to the Hoosick community at large.

We urge the the Diocese of Albany to reconsider their position to demolish the building and work earnestly with the Parish Council and local community to find a path to save this significant building and keep it as place of worship for the parishioners of The Immaculate Conception Church.
