"Synod on Synodality" 2021 - 2023
The Diocese of Albany is excited to announce the beginning phase in the worldwide "Synod on Synodality" initiated by Pope Francis.
The Diocese will coordinate regional listening sessions for its 126 parishes, at which everyone is encouraged to share their opinions
on what they are looking for from today's Church. The listening sessions will be hosted at a central location within each of the seven
vicariates across the diocese. Bishop Edward B. Scharfenberger will be in attendance, lead the opening prayer and spend time listening
to the faithful. The sessions will be guided by a facilitator utilizing universal questions and provide the opportunity for small
group breakout sessions.
Our Synod Listening Session for our Leatherstocking Region Vicariate will be
Tuesday, April 19 at St Mary's in Oneonta.
It is encouraged that the host site (St. Mary's) holds an adoration starting at 6PM prior to the open meeting at 6:30PM
Prayer is an essential component in the Synod process and in preparing ourselves for this journey.
Spending time in the presence of our Lord through the Blessed Sacrament will set the tone for the evening.

AMEN: A New Free Prayer App!
The Augustine Institute just launched a new app for Prayer: AMEN. The Catechism of the Catholic Church, quoting St. Alphonsus Liguori, makes the remarkable and sober observation that: those who pray are certainly saved; those who do not pray are certainly damned. (CCC,2744)
