  • Local Catholics reflect on attending Encuentro
    I was privileged to be part of the five-member delegation from the Diocese of Albany to the National V Encuentro, held Sept. 20-23 in Gaylord, Tx. We joined more than 3,000 Hispanic ministry leaders who participated in the event, representing 159 dioceses and national Catholic organizations and groups.
  • Understanding trauma
    I recently attended some training on “trauma-informed care.” It was quite eye-opening.
  • Missionary who is native of Diocese celebrates St. Romero in El Salvador
    The canonization of Óscar Arnulfo Romero, martyred archbishop of San Salvador, was a true fiesta in the rural parish of Monte San Juan, El Salvador, where I work as a Maryknoll lay missioner.
  • Examining use and abuse of power will help Church work through crisis
    As a clinical social worker, I keep asking, “What are the dynamics behind the abuse of children and teens, the sexual exploitation of adults by someone in power and the dynamics that enabled those in leadership to create this horrendous secret?”
  • A mighty tree
    Parishioners and residents of Glens Falls are used to seeing the huge tree next to St. Mary’s rectory on Warren Street as they pass by our parish.
  • On the abuse crisis and domestic violence
    A reading from the letter to the Ephesians (Eph 5:21-32 or 2,25-32) wakes up a lot of people who aren’t paying attention. By today’s standards, it is politically incorrect. Maybe that’s why the shorter version skips the part that says women should be obedient to their husbands.
  • Have you ever noticed that God does not crash the party? He sends “invitations” and provides the venue, guests and food, but the response is up to us.
  • To our catechists
    In these difficult times for the Church, at a time when people ask themselves, “Why should we stay,” each and every catechist holds an answer: the truth.
  • Update on the Joshua Project
    After 2011 flooding in Schoharie County, the Joshua Project was formed, and quickly grew from a short-term effort to help with flood recovery into a long-term project to lift people out of poverty.
  • In the troubled 1930s, a time of social and civil unrest, young English journalist Malcolm Muggeridge was sent by the Manchester Guardian to Moscow as a foreign correspondent.
