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.
FURTHER Extension of Dispensation
from Sunday Mass Obligation
In light of the recent increase in coronavirus cases within the state of Connecticut and continued uncertainty regarding the extent and duration of the coronavirus in the state and throughout the Archdiocese of Hartford, Archbishop Blair has now extended the dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation for all the Faithful of the Archdiocese of Hartford through Tuesday, February 16, 2021, which is the eve of Ash Wednesday.
The Archdiocese of Hartford continues to monitor the severity of the situation surrounding the pandemic and will provide updates regarding decisions reached for the Archdiocese as they are made.
Important Information On Resuming Public Worship

All the requirements that the Archdiocese of Hartford has established for parishes to open safely must continue to be carefully observed.
Parishioners need to be reminded that they are still dispensed from the Obligation to attend Sunday Masses, and that the elderly, the sick, and those who care for anyone who is vulnerable are encouraged not to attend at this time.
