A NEW CHURCH IN CLIFTON PARK

ST. EDWARD THE CONFESSOR PARISH in Clifton Park just dedicated its new church building, a $6.4 million project eight years in the making. One of the largest parishes in the Albany Diocese, St. Edward's has approximately 3,800 registered households.

Pictured are the completed church at night; Bishop Edward B. Scharfenberger blessing the baptismal font; and Rev. Patrick Butler, pastor, speaking to parishioners.

Representatives from St. Edward's, St. Mary's parish in Crescent and Corpus Christi parish in Round Lake met before the renovations to ensure the new church would have a larger space for youth ministry in southern Saratoga County. Stained-glass windows from the former St. Patrick's and St. Mary's parishes in Troy are incorporated into the new church's design; there's also an organ from the former St. Patrick's in Watervliet. For more photos, see The Evangelist's print edition. (To subscribe, call 518- 453-6688 or email ann.egan@rcda.org.) Read a previous story on the new church at www.evangelist.org.

The only beauty in this "nuchurch" is the stained glass windows from the two old parishes incorporated in it. Other than that, this church is even more 70ish than the ugly 70s designs.
