PLATTSBURGH – Bishop Terry R. LaValley completed a series of meetings with priests and deacons of the diocese in Plattsburgh April 12, 2021.

Over the course of the previous week, Bishop LaValley met with the clergy five other times in Ogdensburg, Clayton, Massena and Morrisonville.

“It is always a pleasure to meet with my fellow priests and deacons,” Bishop LaValley said. “I come away from these gatherings confident in their work among the people of God and inspired by their spirit.”

It has been a tradition for Bishop LaValley to meet with the clergy annually for “listening sessions” at the Priest and Deacon Assemblies in the spring. Those gatherings had to be cancelled this year due to restrictions on the size of gatherings during the pandemic.

“I still wanted to meet with them,” Bishop LaValley said, “so we developed this format.”

A total of six meetings were held in the diocese over a seven-day period.

The sessions provided opportunities for the priests and deacons to ask questions and voice concerns, as well as an opportunity for fellowship

Clergy had the option to attend the sessions either in person or via digital means.
