Imploring local Catholics to accept changes next year with an open heart, Bishop Matthew H. Clark, who heads the Rochester Diocese, addressed head-on the Albany Diocese plan to consolidate churches starting next year.

“I would guess that you all have mixed feelings about this,” Clark said during his keynote address at the annual Parish Convening of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany at Christian Brothers Academy on Saturday. Clark was initiated in St. Mary’s parish in Waterford.

Clark, who is a friend of Albany Bishop Howard J. Hubbard, addressed the difficulty local Catholics will face as their parishes undergo change as part of the “Called to BE Church” pastoral planning process.
