Bishop Terry R LaValley
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 90,470 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.
