Father Augustine – Thank You and may God Bless you!
There was a farewell reception for Fr. Augustine after the 5:00pm Mass on Saturday October 26th .
It is always hard to say goodbye. After serving as our Parochial Vicar for the past four years, Fr. Augustine Nguyen will begin a new assignment on November 1st as the Chaplain at Western Connecticut State University. We offer him a fond farewell and cảm ơn (thank you) for the years of faithful and joyful service to our parish family. We are grateful for all he has done for us.
Father Augustine, we pray that Christ bless your love of Him and your service to the Church; and reward you for being a faithful servant of God!

Rejoice, Renew and Restore:
Money from the capital campaign is paying for the construction work on replacing the cement on the landing by the school lobby doors as well as the semi-circle and sidewalks on Burr Road from the fence line to Riverside Avenue. In front of the two pillars/lobby doors to the semi-circle a wide cement walkway with landscaping on either side is being installed. The landscaping will run from the pillars to the side door landing by the school building and will match on the opposite side in front the stone wall so it begins and ends evenly on both sides. The landing at both doors will stay the same. From the side door to the semi-circle (including in front of the stairs that lead to the lower playground near Burr Road) will also be cement. Click here to view pictures of the construction.
