Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ:   

Welcome to the webpage of the Roman Catholic Diocese of  Ogdensburg!   Whether you are searching  for information about the diocese and our parishes and offices or about the  Roman Catholic Church in general, I hope our site will be of help to you.

The North Country of New York State where we are located is a diverse region with much natural beauty.   Industries in our region include agriculture, education, and tourism with some manufacturing.  The Catholic  faith is strong among so many of our 104,113 Catholic people.


Visitors are always welcome to worship with us at our  parishes throughout the diocese.  If we can be of assistance to you, in any way, please contact the diocese or one of our local churches. Whether you are a resident of the North Country or are visiting us from some other area, I hope you enjoy your tour through our local Church via our webpage.

May Mary, our Patroness under the title of the Immaculate Conception, help us all to follow her Son as a people abundantly blessed.

Sister Gregory Munger, SSJ, the vocation director for the Sisters of St. Joseph, visited the students at Seton Academy in Plattsburgh  June 4.  She talked about vocations and their need to say three Hail Marys every day so that they would know God's plan for them.  The students responded enthusiastically and enjoyed her visit. This week’s NCC features the annual vocation issue “Wake Up the World, the  theme for the Year of Consecrated Life. The issue includes messages on vocations from Bishop LaValley, Father Bryan D. Stitt, diocesan vocation director; and Father J. Roger McGuinness, point person for the diocesan priority “creating a culture of vocations.” The paper also features interviews with the oldest priest of the diocese and two new Sisters of St. Joseph.
