We are also known in the Diocese of Albany as “The Saint Joseph Marian Center.”  Because there is so much information and so many media files on the center’s website, it is much more practical to take you there than to duplicate all of it here.  Therefore, we ask that you click on the following link for everything which does not appear on this page.
