Important news for St. Alban's

posted Sep 25, 2014, 5:17 AM by Rochester Ordinariate
We have two major events to announce at the St. Alban fellowship.  First, this past Sunday, Fr. Cornelius announced his intention to retire as the priest of our group, as well as his ministry in the Southern Tier.  He plans to move his family to Texas in the spring of this coming year.  We wish to thank Fr. Cornelius for his dedicated service to our group these past three years.  It involved starting our group from scratch, and many long hours of driving back and forth from Almond. God bless you!

Second, we had an (extra)Ordinary visit on Saturday from Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson.  Although he was unable to make a visit to our fellowship for Sunday mass, he was able to talk with Fr. Cornelius, visit our family, as well as have Saturday dinner to discuss the future of our group.  He assured us that the St. Alban fellowship is in his prayers, and he is aware of our needs for pastoral and priestly leadership going forward.  Msgr. Steenson let us know that the search for a succesor priest has begun. Please pray for a successsful transition.
