Listening Synod

Pastors have been asked to hold "listening sessions" in preparation for the Synod. Our listening session will be held on Tuesday night August 28th at 7 PM in the parish center. Father is asking if you would be so kind as to attend this meeting so that we can together strengthen the catholic faith in the Archdiocese of Hartford. There are three questions that will guide the discussions: What is the archdiocese doing well, what is it not doing well, and what should the archdiocese do moving forward? The archbishop is requesting these listening sessions and he is requesting that no clergy be present so that people may have the opportunity to discuss among themselves. Ray Smith will be facilitating this discussion. Thank you for your continued support and love for this parish and for the Archdiocese of Hartford.

Cooperative Mission Appeal

We welcome Fr. Vincent Lam Nguyen of the Diocese of Long Xuyen, Vietnam. Fr. Nguyen will be preaching this weekend regarding the good works done by the Diocese of Long Xuyen. The Diocese covers two provinces of An Giang and Kien Giang plus parts of two districts that belong to the City of Ccan Tho. This region locates in the most southwestern corner of Vietnam in the Mekong Delta that shares borders with Cambodia. The Long Xuyen Diocese currently has over 234,000 faithful among approximately 4.2 million people or 5.57%, lower than the national average. It spreads out to 185 parishes in a region of about 6,500 square miles. We currently have 301 priests including 30 religious ones, about 300 religious sisters, 97 seminarians, 184 preparatory students and nearly 1,900 catechists. In 1954, the population of the faithful in this area was about 30,000. That was before the influx of the Catholic political refugees from North Vietnam moving into this fertile farming land. The official church records showed that the above number has increased to 93,739 in 1964. Again, we are caring for over 234,000 faithful nowadays. Viet Nam’s national population is shifting from countryside to more industrial cities or further into isolated rural land. The latter is of our most concern since many Catholics are moving away from their home parishes to the new land where there are neither churches nor catechetical schools. The Long Xuyen Diocese has to build up to 5 chapels and many classrooms each year to accommodate these new Catholic communities. We also must train many new catechists and evangelizing volunteers. WE NEED YOUR HELP AND SUPPORT! Please let us be the extension of your arms to help this poor brothers and sisters of ours as well as to touch the non-Christians in the region who are hungry for the GOOD NEWS of CHRIST and the LOVE of God.
