Bishop's Letter


June 26, 2022                                 

Dear parishioners of Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, Albany, Historic St Mary's, Albany and St Francis of Assisi, Albany

Fr Michael Flannery has resigned as pastor of Historic St Mary's, Albany.  We look forward to him furthering his ministerial work within the Diocese.

I have appointed Fr David Mickiewicz to be Rector of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception and Pastor of Historic St. Mary's and St. Francis of Assisi.

Fr. Mickiewicz has been pastor of St. Mary's, Oneonta and Sacramental Minister at Holy Cross, Morris, where he has used his gifts as he ministered with Pastoral grace and enthusiasm.

Fr. Mickiewicz will begin at his new parishes on August 15, 2022.  Let us all pray in thanksgiving for his ministry and ask the Holy Spirit to continue to guide him.

Faithfully yours in Christ,

Edward B Scharfenberger

Bishop of Albany
