Thank you for your interest in serving the Diocese of Albany. The following churches are in various stages of transition. If you are interested in learning more about where a church is in the process, you can contact the Diocese of Albany Transition Officer Ms. Elizabeth Strickland through email at or by phone at  518-692-3350 x 504. You may also review portfolios on the Office For Transition Ministry website

Procedure for application to church positions
All priests who are interested in a position within the Diocese of Albany should contact Ms. Strickland. In preparation for an interview, a priest will need to email Ms. Strickland his/her OTM portfolio, a resume, and a spiritual autobiography (no longer than 4 pages). Once that information is received, a telephone interview with Ms. Strickland will be scheduled. There is no need to send information to a parish since materials sent directly to congregations for any position are forwarded automatically to Ms. Strickland. The Bishop’s office will review all nominations prior to submission to search committees.
