Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ:   

Welcome to the webpage of the Roman Catholic Diocese of  Ogdensburg!   Whether you are searching  for information about the diocese and our parishes and offices or about the  Roman Catholic Church in general, I hope our site will be of help to you.

The North Country of New York State where we are located is a diverse region with much natural beauty.   Industries in our region include agriculture, education, and tourism with some manufacturing.  The Catholic  faith is strong among so many of our 104,113 Catholic people.


Visitors are always welcome to worship with us at our  parishes throughout the diocese.  If we can be of assistance to you, in any way, please contact the diocese or one of our local churches. Whether you are a resident of the North Country or are visiting us from some other area, I hope you enjoy your tour through our local Church via our webpage.

May Mary, our Patroness under the title of the Immaculate Conception, help us all to follow her Son as a people abundantly blessed.

St. Andre Bessette Parish is born


Bishop Terry R. LaValley accepted the offertory gifts from Pamela Leduc and  James Coughlin, the first trustees of Saint André Bessette Parish in Malone, during the parish’s Foundation Day Mass July 1.  Deacon Brian Bashaw is shown at left. The Mass was the highlight of a day long celebration as four Malone parishes were united to form the new St. Andre Bessette parish.  The day opened with a morning “pilgrim walk “ from St. Helen's in Chasm Falls to Notre Dame Church for the liturgy. The Mass was followed by a Eucharistic procession to St. John Bosco and then to St. Joseph's where there was an evening benediction and a reception.  Full coverage of the Foundation Day celebration will appear in the July 30 issue of the NCC.
