    • Welcome

      PASTOR’S DESK       

               Prayer upon the Canonization
                 Popes John XXIII and John Paul II 

      Eternal God, you have given us extraordinary examples of pastoral leadership   through Popes John XXIII and John Paul II. 

      In both men  we see your desire  that all peoples may be one; that the sanctity of human life may be honored  and that war and violence may come to an end. 

      May the canonization of these great popes  cause us to reflect more deeply on our own path of discipleship  and resolve to be more active in proclaiming your Gos- pel through our words and actions. 

      We pray this in Jesus Christ, our Lord and brother through the grace of the Holy Spirit. 


      Father George

    • Bishop's Appeal 2014: Teach, Protect, Heal & Sanctify
      The Bishop’s Appeal of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany was envisioned nearly 60 years ago by the Most Reverend William A. Scully, Bishop of Albany to financially support the growing services and ministries of the Church.

      Ever since, thousands of people across the fourteen counties of our Diocese have come together each year to generously empower their parish’s contribution to support the work of the Church to help those in need and to keep our Catholic Faith alive and flourishing in our homes, schools and communities.

      Today the mission of the Bishop’s Appeal remains the same as it was when it began, to financially empower the Church to serve all the people of God, regardless of belief. What is different today is that the needs are greater than ever before.
