About Us

Founded on February 18, 2018, The Satanic Temple Albany congregation (TST Albany) is an affiliate congregation of The Satanic Temple, a non-theistic Satanic religious organization and IRS-recognized church. TST Albany congregation strives to be a space of conscious inclusivity in an increasingly exclusive society. Our goals are to support, encourage, and promote participation in the national campaigns of The Satanic Temple; to promote Satanic education within our congregation; to be a force for positive change within our community; and to provide a safe and welcoming community for marginalized members of society.
