The Archdiocese of Hartford will celebrate a synod closing Mass Friday, August 13 at the Oakdale Theater in Wallingford, at which the Archbishop will present recommendations for promoting the life and mission of the Archdiocese of Hartford.  The Archdiocese is asking that each Parish send 30 Parishioners to this Mass.

The Year of Saint Joseph

In December 2020, Pope Francis declared 2020-2021  the Year of Joseph, thus celebrating the 150th anniversary of the proclamation of St. Joseph as Protector of the Universal Church.  Marking the occasion, the Pope issued the apostolic letter “Patris Corde “ (With a Father’s Heart”) in which he lovingly reflects on St. Joseph as a beloved, tender and caring, obedient, accepting, creatively courageous, working father, and a father in the shadows.

 

An opportunity to delve into the richness of the Pope’s letter will be offered at Christ the King Parish on 8 Wednesdays from September 8th to October 27th.  Sessions will be held at 1:30 p.m. (Group 1) and at 7:00 p.m. (Group 2).  Please register your interest by contacting Sister Mary Bernard (Shanley) at [email protected]

(Enter “St. Joseph” as the subject of your e-mail.)


 

AOH Campaign to Build an Irish Canal Workers Memorial

The Ancient Order of Hibernians Hartford Division 2 is fundraising to build a monument to help remember a forgotten Irish-Catholic cemetery in Windsor Locks.

The memorial will honor the 400 immigrant laborers who left their homeland in Ireland and came to the area between May 1827 and November 1829 to build the canal bypassing the treacherous rapids of the Connecticut River.

In particular, we will honor those canal workers and family members that are buried in an unmarked Catholic cemetery that is located about 100 yards and across the canal from where the memorial will be placed.

The memorial will be located at the Windsor Locks Canal Trail State Park near the Montgomery Mills Apartments.

Gifts are accepted at https://gofund.me/a3283c68 or by mailing a check to Irish Canal Workers Memorial Fund, AOH Hartford Division 2, PO Box 68, Glastonbury, Conn., 06033.
