Opening of Churches for Public Worship in the Archdiocese of Hartford
As was announced by Governor Lamont, the State of Connecticut, on Friday, November 6, 2020, will revert back to more rigorous restrictions, implementing "Phase 2.1", to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Attendance at Mass for all churches in the Archdiocese of Hartford will be restricted to 50% of capacity or 100 persons, whichever is less. As for Sunday Mass, the dispensation from the Sunday obligation previously granted to all Catholics of the archdiocese by the Archbishop has now been extended through May 23, 2021, which is Pentecost Sunday. This will remain in effect even though the public celebration of Sunday Mass has resumed. Guidelines for opening of churches throughout the Archdiocese of Hartford can be found at www.archdioceseofhartford.org/coronavirus
Per the diocese, during this time parishioners who are absent from Mass are urged to make alternate provision for their weekly contributions since parishes depend on them for operation. Sign up for Online Giving or make a one-time donation.

My Jesus, I believe that You are in the Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things, and long for You in my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. As though You have already come, I embrace You and unite myself entirely to You; never permit me to be separated from You. Amen

Whether you live alone or with family, you will still be gathering with Catholics around the world to worship God, keep his day holy, and receive the grace of an act of spiritual communion (a prayer for this will be provided on screen).
Let us all draw closer to the Lord in this time, and continue to pray for everyone affected by the virus. Although we may be temporarily physically isolated from one another, we are still one in the Body of Christ. Mary, health of the sick, pray for us!
