Let nothing disturb you
Let nothing upset you
Everything changes

With patience all things are possible
Whoever has God lacks nothing
God alone is enough

Archbishop Blair announced Wednesday (April 15th) that the cancellation of public Masses and liturgies in the Archdiocese of Hartford will remain in effect until further notice.  See complete letter at the link below.

Extension of Closures


We at Christ the King Parish will be live-streaming all Saturday vigil masses at 4:00pm and weekday masses at 7:30am on Facebook.  We will then convert that post to a YouTube video, and it can be found above on our parish website. 


And above all, let us pray for one another.  I was truly moved by a letter from Fr. Rick in Haiti who said the candle burning before the Divine Mercy statue is for us!  As hard as those people have it, compared to what we are going through, they are taking time to pray for us!  Wow!  Doesn’t that show us that we are in this together with everyone around the world, and that we have to pray for one another!

 Funerals

Unless it is already scheduled and planned, all funeral Masses are suspended.  Additionally, wake services at funeral homes are not to be recommended.  Priests are allowed to celebrate the “Rite of Committal with Final Commendation” at the graveside.  Participation at such services should be limited to immediate family and close friends only, and their number must be in keeping with the limits established by the civil authorities.

A Mass for the repose of the soul of the deceased, as provided for in the Roman Missal, can be added to the parish Mass intentions and offered as soon as reasonably possible under the circumstances, or, if the family desires, a public celebration of this Mass at a later date can be contemplated.
