Colonie, St Michaels

St. Michael’s, Colonie,began as a church plant of Albany’s Cathedral of All Saints in the early 1950s, holding services at the local firehouse. Soon after, St. Michael’s obtained a permanent location nearby. Led by Fr. Charles Dwyer and his wife, Fern, parishioners hand-built the mid-20th century A-frame sanctuary, digging the undercroft, installing a vaulted wooden ceiling, and handmaking stained glass windows. Over the years, St. Michael’s has fostered more than a dozen deacons and priests for the wider Church. We are a prayerful, ministry-focused and scripture-based parish.
