    The Albany Diocese was proud to be the site where the 2018 Regional V Encuentro was held June 22-24. The Regional V Encuentro was part of a series of meetings that are being held over the next four years, discerning how to better connect with and involve the Hispanic and Latino Catholic community in the Church. The Albany event drew more than 300 delegates from the eight dioceses in New York State.


    "YOUR CALL IS A CALL TO GO OUT into the world and tell the Good News, by your life and by your example. It's not really about you, but it is about all of us," Bishop Edward B. Scharfenberger told Rev. Zachariah Chichester, the newest priest of the Albany Diocese.
