Welcome to Saint Gregory the Great Parish of Bristol, Connecticut.  Thank you for visiting our website.

To My Dear Parishioners:

We find ourselves in the midst of the great health crisis that we are all facing as a result of the coronavirus epidemic.  We are all challenged with carrying on with daily life to the extent that circumstances permit.  The Archdiocese of Harford and all its parishes are striving to provide pastoral care not only to those adversely affected, whether physically or spiritually, but also maintain the ongoing life of the church and its many services and ministries, however curtailed they may be at the moment.

All Masses are suspended until April 30th which includes Palm Sunday Masses, Holy Thursday Evening Mass of the Lord's Supper, Good Friday Service, Holy Saturday Easter Vigil and Easter Sunday Masses.

Confessions are still being heard on Monday evenings from 6PM to 7PM and on Saturday afternoon from 3PM to 3:30 PM. Confessions will also be heard on Monday, April 6th from 6PM to 7PM. 

As a result of the suspension of all Masses until April 30th, I ask that, to the extent that you are not adversely effected by the pandemic, that you not forget the needs of your parish or the wider church so that we can continue to fulfill our obligations to pay our employees, to maintain our facilities, and to carry out our mission.  Because of the suspension of Masses, the parish is no longer able to rely on the weekly envelopes of its parishioners.  As a result of the coronavirus, the outreach of our church, spiritually and materially, will be needed more than ever in the face of the many challenges and hardships inflicted on many people less fortunate than ourselves.
I am very grateful to all who continue to support our parish through the On-Line Giving, a simple and very effective way of facilitating contributions. This process, makes it possible for you to contribute to the parish from anywhere at any time.  This is helpful at this time, when the Masses on Sunday have been suspended.  To make your contribution to the parish, simply go to the parish website: www.stgregorybristol.org and click on the ‘Online Giving’ tab in the Menu, or you can go directly to www.osvonlinegiving.com/1640 . You also may mail your contributions to the parish, using your parish envelopes and send them directly to us at: Saint Gregory the Great Church, 235 Maltby Street, Bristol, Ct. 06010. You also may drop them off at the Parish Office using the drop box to the right of the Rectory door.

I ask that you keep in mind that we are truly blessed if we have the opportunity to help others, especially at a time of uncertainty, sorrow and hardship for many people.

May the Lord continue to bless you for your continued generosity to our Parish. May God Bless you.

Monsignor Gary F. Simeone



Some parishioners warned us about a scam text message they just received supposedly from Father Gary.  This is a SCAM, do not answer the text. 

The text started out with the person's name, saying "can you do me a favor?"  And when they responded to it, because they thought it could be Father Gary.  A return text asked them to purchase gift cards for “people in the hospital who were suffering from cancer”  and that he couldn’t get to the store and would pay them back later.  Obviously a SCAM

We have notified the Monsignor and he is changing his password,  but if you or anyone you know receives this message, DO NOT respond.
