We celebrate regular weekend Masses Saturday at 4:00 (St. Mary) and 5:30 (St. Thomas), and Sunday Masses at 8:30 (St. Thomas) and 10:30 (St. Mary). Primarily, we are streaming Masses to our parishioner's homes, but we are offering the opportunity for small numbers of people to participate in person so that they can receive the Eucharist on an occasional basis as they feel necessary. 

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. The public SHOULD 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.
