Albert Joseph Risdorfer is an American Independent Catholic priest and pastor of Our Lady Undoer of Knots Inclusive Catholic Community.

On his parish website, he writes, "My 2 brothers, sister and I grew up in Philadelphia in a typical Irish-German-Italian, upper-lower-class, Catholic, Philly row-home home. Dad was a Philly cop (and a good one) and Mom worked at Sears to make ends meet. From the time I was a small child, I was fascinated with being a priest. I eventually entered the St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Philadelphia where I studied for 6 years. My undergrad degree is from St. Charles Borromeo. A short time after, that I entered the Missionaries of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary but left before taking my first vows. obtained a master’s degree in Organization Development from Antioch University and began a successful career as a human resources executive for companies ranging from small entrepreneurial startups, to global Fortune 300 tech firms. I am well known in the industry as a thought leader and change agent who is expert at building engaged cultures, effective leaders, market-facing capabilities and human capital strategies. I am also an openly gay man who has been active in the field of gay rights for decades. I am married to my incredible partner, Tony of over 2 decades. We have been active in Dignity - a community of Catholic LGBTQ people. Finally after much study and prayer, I was at long last ordained a Deacon in May of 2018, and a priest on April 6th, 2019 as part of an independent catholic denomination that we no longer affiliate with. I am now the pastor of Our Lady, Undoer of Knots Inclusive Catholic Community. Our community is also officially Dignity Baltimore. The first time DignityUSA has had a chapter in Charm City since the 1980's "[1]
