That's how you can describe the life Father James Lefebvre of St. Mary's Church.  An amazing advocate for police officers as well.  So much so that there's going to be a fundraiser in his honor

Check out THIS bio!

Father Lefebvre has been a Priest for 56 years and has been the Albany Police Chaplain for the past 53 years.  He has also been the Chaplain for the FBI for 17 years, the FOP Chaplain for over 20 years, and is the Chaplain for the Northeast Chiefs of Police Association.

In 1986 Father Lefebvre did the 1st Annual Law Enforcement Memorial Mass for the Albany Police Dept. and has continued to do this mass since then.  In 1989 New York State passed the legislation for the NYS Law Enforcement Memorial and the mass which was originally done for the Albany Police Dept. then became the mass for the NYS Police Memorial and in 2016 Father Lefebvre will be doing his 30th mass.
