WELCOME TO AURIESVILLE SHRINE
THE SHRINE OF Our Lady of Martyrs in Auriesville has a new religious order in residence: the Institute of the Incarnate Word.
At a ceremony last weekend, the Friends of Our Lady of Martyrs Shrine (the foundation that now runs the shrine) and Bishop Edward B. Scharfenberger welcomed the order to the Albany Diocese.
Rev. Daniel Mentesana, IVE, and seminarian Deacon Ted Trinko, IVE, who will be ordained in May, will be in residence at the shrine.
About 600 clergy, religious, third-order lay members of the institute and laypersons attended the ceremony, pictured here.
In addition, the ceremony marked the fact that the Jesuit order that once oversaw the shrine has transferred the deed to the Friends of the Shrine.
