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.

The Commissioned Lay Ministry Association Board of St. Lawrence-Franklin-Adirondack Deaneries met in June to plan for coming events for  commissioned lay ministers. A picnic for all lay ministers was held Aug. 22 at Guggenheim and the annual dinner for the cluster has been set for Oct. 21 in Norfolk. Shown are St. Joseph Sister Jennifer Votraw, delegate for lay pastoral ministers in the diocese; and board members Jean Mozdzier, Clare Murdock, Chuck Mozdzier, Dorothy Hobbs, Cassie Pulsifer, Marilyn DeCelles, Barbara Gibson, Mary Sovie and Brent Charland. Commissioned lay ministers should be receiving emails regarding the events; those who have not should contact Jeannie Grizzuto @ (315) 393-2920, Ext. 1413 or by email jgrizzuto@rcdony.org.
