A Unified Voice for All New York State Catholics
The New York State Catholic Conference represents the Bishops of the state in working with government to shape laws and policies that pursue social justice, respect for life and the common good. We provide a unified voice for the eight dioceses of the state to speak on such issues as education, marriage, health care, poverty, abortion, euthanasia, social services, criminal justice and the environment. We apply the principles of Catholic social teaching to critical issues of the day and encourage citizen involvement in the legislative process.
Several New York dioceses are posting photos from World Youth Day in #Krakow2016 on Instagram, including Archdiocese of New York (archnewyork), Diocese of Albany (albanydiocese), Diocese of Syracuse (syracusediocese) and Diocese of Buffalo (buffalodiocese). If you're on Instagram, be sure to check them out. Pope Francis arrives tomorrow.

A statement released by Fr Federico Lombardi, Director of the Holy See Press Office said: “we are particularly shocked because this horrible violence took place in a Church, in which God’s love is announced, with the barbarous killing of a priest and the involvement of the faithful”.
