Albany Diocese to celebrate ordination and installation of new bishop

ALBANY -- Parishioners in the Albany Roman Catholic Diocese are excited about the upcoming ordination and installation of a new bishop.

The ceremony kicks off Thursday afternoon at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Albany. Bishop-elect Edward Scharfenberger is set to become the 10th bishop since the Albany Roman Catholic Diocese began back in 1847.

Bishop Howard Hubbard has been bishop of the Albany Roman Catholic Diocese for the past 37 years.

"So for many of the people in the diocese, he's the only bishop they've ever known," said the Rev. Kenneth Doyle from the Parish of Mater Christi in Albany.

But come Thursday, the diocese will officially have a new bishop. The ordination and installation of Scharfenberger will be celebrated at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Albany in front of about 1,200 people.

Doyle walked NewsChannel 13 through the process.
