Interim team leaders for parishes in the Albany Diocese that are in-between pastors have been appointed to the parishes of Holy Spirit, East Greenbush; St. Joseph’s, Worcester; and Our Lady of Mount Carmel, St. Adalbert’s and St. Paul’s, all in Schenectady.

Interim teams will consist of two individuals: a retired priest or a priest on special assignment for sacramental needs and a parish administrator. The priest will generally have weekend responsibilities and may occasionally assist with funerals.

The parish administrator will be at the parish on-site on a part-time basis to oversee, assist with and evaluate parish operations during the interim period.

The administrator will also invite key diocesan personnel to visit and support the parish with the various aspects of parish life.

The interim leadership team will serve as the liaison between the diocese and the parish. Parish operations, procedures and personnel are not expected to change during the interim period.

These interim teams were announced, effective immediately:

• Rev. John Bradley and Gail Moore, Holy Spirit, East Greenbush;

• Rev. Matthew Frisoni and Dea­con Michael McDonald, Our Lady of Mount Carmel, Schenectady;

• Rev. Paul Mijas and Deacon Michael McDonald, St. Adalbert’s, Schenectady;
