Fr George's Spiritual YouTube Videos

6/2- "A Tough and Honest Reflection": Fr. George Fleming speaks to his parishes of the horror of the tragic death of George Floyd and the sin of racism and violence. He also reflects on the need for individuals and institutions to awaken, reform and renew themselves, on our duty to listen and support each other, and Christ's call to cherish the breath of life in each brother and sister among us. Read the Statement from US Bishop Chairmen about racism and protests.

Father George is pleased to announce the arrival of seminarian Dan McHale and is looking forward to his serving in our three parishes.  Born and raised in Stuyvesant, Dan knows the area well and will provided much needed and appreciated assistance as we begin plans of reopening in the near future.  Dan was going to be serving as a deacon but the ordination that was planned for May 16 has been rescheduled for Labor Day weekend.  We will introduce him more fully this week but I thought (he thought) that this link to the Albany Vocations website will serve as an initial introduction.
