      If you have gotten caught up in the busyness of life and have fallen away of the Sacrament of Reconciliation, you can change that.  This Lenten season, the Archdiocese of Hartford is initiating an Archdiocesan=wide effort to inspire Catholics to experience God's love and mercy offered in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  EVERY CHURCH IN THE ARCHDIOCESE WILL BE OPEN ON MONDAYS FROM 6:00PM TO 7:00PM DURING LENT FOR CONFESSIONS.  TO HELP YOU PREPARE FOR THE SACRAMENT OF RECONCILIATION, VISiT www.Light4you.info      


      Welcome to all who are worshiping with our Parish family this weekend, whether visiting, a long time parishioner, or newly arrived in the parish.  We are one Holy Family.  If you are new to the parish and would like to register, please call the office at 860-741-2101 or stop by for a registration form.   

      "Easter Duty Obligation"
       After they have received their First Holy Communion Catholics are bound to the obligation of receiving Holy Communion at least once a year.  This precept should be fulfilled during the Easter Season.  Catholics are also bound to confess serious (mortal) sins at least once a year, but this is not limited to the Lenten Easter Season.
