St. Boniface, Guilderland, was founded as a mission in 1961 and incorporated in 1983 under the leadership of Fr. Al Tuttle. Fr. John Zimmerman was called as the first full-time Rector in 1994. In 2009, the parish celebrated the Ordination of Fr. Steven Scherck, the current Rector. Always Building on Faith, the original multi-purpose church building was dedicated in 1964, a two-story addition completed in 1987, stained glass added to the nave, and an elevator in the expanded narthex in 2014. Exterior improvements, including a towering cross, landscaping, and improved parking followed.  The parish’s mission is embodied in the St. Boniface prayer “to increase in faith, enlarge in family and expand in resources so that we may fulfill Your will.”
