FINDING OUR PLACE IN THE FAMILY

The Summit on the Family is a gathering for all Catholic families in the Diocese of Albany. The event was conceived by Bishop Ed Scharfenberger to focus on where seeds of faith and love are planted—in the family. It’s a day for family fun, Catholic devotions, and insights into joy-filled family life.

 

The day will include family activities, upbeat talks from various presenters, Mass and devotions, and a tour of the Shrine.

 
Speakers on Authentic Catholic Family Life
MIKE & BERNADETTE BONANNO

Bernadette and Mike Bonanno have been married 34 years and are parents of 4 grown sons. They have worked in Marriage Preparation Ministry for 24 years and are currently presenters on the Diocesan Marriage Preparation Team.

BISHOP ED SCHARFENBERGER
Finding Our Place in the Family


Bishop Sharfenberger became the bishop of our diocese in 2014. Known for his warm and open personality, which shines through in his preaching, Bishop Ed will talk about God’s plan for the family and how each of us find a place not only in our own family, but the family of the Church.
 
Activities
A large tent will house family-friendly activities that explore the richness of our Catholic tradition—similar to a "Parish Family Day" but with people from around the whole diocese!

 
Who Should Attend?
 

All Catholic families who want to celebrate our faith together! Families with small children are encouraged to attend. While there will be some talks geared toward adults, there will also be plenty to engage children of all ages.

THE SHRINE OF THE NORTH AMERICAN MARTYRS

One of the great Catholic treasures in the United States is located within our diocese!

The Shrine of the North American Martyrs
is an historic site and a national place of pilgrimage honored for centuries as the birthplace of St. Kateri Tekakwitha and the site where many American saints were martyred. The Jesuits built the Coliseum in 1930 and established the Shrine.

Today, it is operated by the Friends of Our Lady of Martyrs Shrine, chaired by Bishop Scharfenberger, along with New York’s eight dioceses. In addition to the church, the grounds feature numerous chapels and prayer paths along the Mohawk River, which are especially beautiful in autumn. This is truly “holy ground” and a worthy pilgrimage site!
