As you know, our new Bishop ..., 29 July 2015 [cached]
As you know, our new Bishop Edward Scharfenberger is visiting this weekend. Originally, he had planned to be at all four Masses, with a reception for him at Huletts Landing on Saturday evening. However, just yesterday (Monday), I received a call from him, apologizing that because of an unforeseen scheduling conflict, he can only come to this Sunday's Masses and cannot join us on Saturday.
Bishop Scharfenberger had planned to be with us the whole weekend, so he is very sorry and said he is still looking forward to being with us this Sunday. We will move the reception to Sunday at Our Lady of Hope in Whitehall, since that now fits in his schedule. He will be at both Sunday Masses, 9:00 at St. Ann's in Fort Ann, and 11:00 at Our Lady of Hope in Whitehall.

Edward B. Scharfenberger, a priest of the Diocese of Brooklyn, will be succeeding Bishop Howard J. Hubbard as the 10th Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany, the Vatican announced Tuesday.
Please help me to be myself help me to be my best self, said Scharfenberger, during a press conference Tuesday morning. And my pledge and promise is that I will help to bring the best out in you.
Scharfenberger, 65, was born in Bushwick in Brooklyn. He attended Our Lady of Miraculous Medal Elementary School in Ridgewood, N.J., and then Cathedral Preparatory Seminary High School in Elmhurst. He studied English at Cathedral College of the Immaculate Conception in Douglaston and graduated in 1968. He then studied theology in at North American College in Rome, Italy. He was ordained on July 2, 1973, in St. Peters Basilica, Rome.
He served as Parochial Vicar, or associate pastor, at St. Stanislaus Church in Maspeth and St. Ephren Church in Dyker Heights before returning to Rome for further studies. After 20 years of serving in various capacities in the Diocese of Brooklyn, he attended Fordham University School of Law and was admitted to the New York bar in 1991. He has been the administrator of the Diocesan Board of Mediation and Arbitration and chaplain of the Kings County Catholic Lawyers Guild.
For the past 12 years, Scharfenberger has not only been pastor of St. Matthias Church in Ridgewood, a large multi-ethnic parish, but has also served as both Promoter of Justice for the Diocese of Brooklyn and a member of the Diocesan Review Board for Sexual Abuse of Minors. He most recently worked as the Episcopal Vicar for Queens.
Im here to be a shepherd to be people who are here, not to come in with my plan for what the diocese should be, said Scharfenberger.
Scharfenberger seems to be looking at creative solutions to this problem.
The church never really closes, because the church is people, not buildings, said Scharfenberger.
Scharfenberger will be ordained and installed on April 20 at 2 p.m. In the meantime, he will be working to wrap things up at his parish in Brooklyn.
