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 Fr. John. 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.

Reopening For Public Worship

This is important, and it has changed. Please read it.

We have resumed our regular weekend Mass schedule of Saturday Masses at 4:00 (St. Mary) and 5:30 (St. Thomas). Sunday Masses at 8:30 (St. Thomas) and 10:30 (St. Mary), while continuing to stream Mass from St. Thomas.

The obligation to attend Mass continues to be dispensed for all Catholics in the Diocese of Norwich. You may continue to stay home and watch the television or live-streamed Mass. DO NOT ENTER THE CHURCH if you have, might possibly have, or have been exposed to someone who has the COVID-19 virus. Masks must be worn and social distancing must be practiced.

Weekday Masses will continue to be celebrated from St. Thomas to allow them to be streamed as St. Mary’s doesn’t have a strong internet connection.

Streaming of Mass times have changed:  Mass will be streamed Saturday at 5:30pm, Sunday at 8:30am, and Monday through Friday at 9:00am. At this time we are temporarily only able to stream from St Thomas Aquinas.

This is only a summary. Please read this article to learn what else must be done as you attend.
