Our Pastor, Father John Antonelle received word from Bishop Cote that as of November 9, 2020, he is the pastor of Saint Mary Parish in Portland, Connecticut, replacing Father Paul Boudreau who is retiring. We will miss you, Father John!

Father Jonathan Ficara has rejoined us. Welcome back, Father Jonathan!


If you are new to the community, Welcome! We are grateful to the Lord for your presence with us and look forward to including you in all areas of our life together.

Please take a moment to fill out a registration card and introduce yourself to Father. Registering makes it easier for us to provide documentation such as a certificate for sponsoring a child for Baptism or Confirmation or to arrange for a wedding here. So please register.
