The Solemnity of Pentecost, brings the season of Easter, which we have been celebrating for the past 50 days, to an end. At Pentecost we celebrate the coming of the Holy Spirit upon the apostles and signifies the foundation of the Church. This Sunday at the 11am Mass three of our adult parishioners will receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit through the Sacrament of Confirmation. We congratulate them and pray their hearts be open to the work of the Spirit.
Governor Lamont has announced that vaccinated residents of Connecticut are no longer required to wear masks indoors after May 19th, 2021.
For those who are fully vaccinated, they are no longer required to wear a mask to attend Mass or any other liturgical or social function held on parish property.
In an abundance of safety, we encouraged those who are fully vaccinated that are free and welcome to continue to wear masks if they choose to do so.
All those who are not fully vaccinated must continue to wear masks when attending Mass or ani other liturgical or social function held on parish property. While there is no way for us to enforce this requirement, this obligation, borne from our commitment to protect human life, transcends the mandate of the state. It flows from our very belief in the Lord of life, who commands us to protect, defend and respect all human life, from natural conception to natural death.
