Shrine Church Ministries
As Jesus reminds us that he is the vine and we are the branches, and it is the branches through which nourishment enlivens the vine, so it is with parish ministries and organizations. There are many ministries and organizations by which our parish is enriched – some of which require occasional participation, and others which entail regular service. One does not become a parishioner simply by attending Sunday Mass. Your involvement in one of these ministries and organizations will not only enrich your life, but it will also vitalize the communion of faith we enjoy at the Shrine Church of Our Lady of the Americas in Albany, New York.
The faith community of the Shrine Church is a witness to the love of Christ by living out the Gospel values and our baptismal promises in the world. We work to accomplish this through the use of our gifts of time, talent and treasure as we serve God and one another in the various ministries found in our parish family.
