Gianna of Albany First Anniversary Celebration, Open House, and Special Blessing

The First Anniversary of Gianna of Albany, located at 242 South Central Avenue in Mechanicville, was  celebrated on Saturday, January 17, 2015 with an open house and a special blessing by Bishop Edward Scharfenberger of the Catholic Diocese of Albany.
