Orientation for work in the Church

At all levels (diocesan, parish, nonprofits), the Standards for Excellence recommends employee orientation (see #28).  That is, new employees should receive an orientation which includes a review of the institution’s personnel policies and procedures, a job description, and an introduction to the Standards for Excellence. What appears on its surface to be a “no-brainer” – of course this orientation should take place, I wonder how many, or how few, institutions really include this step in their…See More

Keeping the parish functioning in a time of crisis

My office has been a major conduit of communication in the days leading up to Hurricane Sandy and in the storm’s immediate aftermath.  Memos have been going out to the pastors about emergency financial assistance provided by Catholic Charities, and about insurance issues related to damage caused by the storm.  Besides communicating to pastors about the recovery of the physical plants of the parishes, information is being compiled and communicated about the services and resources available to…See More

The Benefits and Pitfalls of Staff Retreats

I have been privileged to attend several staff retreats during my years in the Diocese of Metuchen and they are always positive, motivating experiences.  All participants usually depart the retreat with renewed enthusiasm and commitment to the mission of the Church, and particularly to their own ministry.  Bonding and trust-building between the participants takes place, which helps everyone recommit to working together as a team. Often, however, these positive retreat experiences quickly fade…See More

Internet usage at parishes: challenges of internet pornography

The Diocese of Metuchen has invited Dr. Nancy Kluge (a clinician at St. Luke Institute), to speak to our priests, parochial school parents and diocesan staff about the dangers of internet pornography.  Recognizing and acknowledging the benefits of the internet to ministry, Dr. Kluge will focus on pastoral vulnerability and the challenges of easy access to pornography – in the personal lives of the priests, in confession, in family life, or in the workplace. As a diocesan staff member, I am well…See More

About Lori Albanese

I have served the Diocese of Metuchen (New Jersey) as Chancellor since 2001.  As needed, I continue to serve as a Judge in the Tribunal.

I am a member of the Canon Law Society of America and the Association of Catholic Diocesan Archivists.  I have served as a consultor on the CLSA Board of Governors.

I received my license in canon law from the Catholic University of America in 1998 and have worked in diocesan ministry since that time.  I live in Raritan, New Jersey with my husband, Rich, and my two daughters, Siena and Angelina.
