I have been up to my ears with a couple projects and so yesterday I wasn’t able to post anything regarding the changing of the guard in the Diocese of Albany.
After 36.88 years (not that anyone is counting precisely), Albany finally has a new bishop as Most. Rev. Howard Hubbard’s resignation was at last accepted.
A priest from the Brooklyn diocese is appointed the new bishop: Fr. Edward Sharfenberger. We wish him every good thing as he prepares to be consecrated and take the reins. He will now get to deal with the likes of Gov. Andrew “GET OUT” Cuomo.
There was something of a summary of Bp. Hubbard’s time in Albany HERE.
Meanwhile, recently Bp. Hubbard (retired), on 6 February, published in the diocesan paper/website his defense of why Catholic schools in Albany use Common Core. HERE
What could go wrong?
We wish His Excellency a quiet restful retirement.
