All are invited to the Mass of Remembrance to be held April 24, 2018

Rev. Robert Rousseau will celebrate the Annual Archdiocesan Mass of Remembrance at St. Thomas the Apostle in West Hartford on April 24th, 2018 at 5:30PM. The Mass is a time for reflection on the lives of our children who have died from any cause. Many have died suddenly; some have died after illnesses. The causes are numerous but the resulting emotions of pain, longing and sorrow are the same.

Even with the healing power of time, with a sense of gratitude and joy for their lives, our children remain in our hearts with a profound sense of sadness. Perhaps one of the most misunderstood and often overlooked losses is that of miscarriage. Too frequently it is seen as less than other deaths of children, but for those who have experienced miscarriage, it is no less painful.

Parents wish these children to be remembered and the Mass of Remembrance provides this opportunity. Please join us in praying for children who have died by miscarriage, illness, or any cause, and for their families.

Refreshments will be served following Mass.

Pro-Life Ministry leads 150 supporters to March for Life

March for Life

MERIDEN, CT (01-18-2018 to 01-19-2018) - It was 6:00 on a Thursday morning. A group of 150 individuals including 90 high school students from St. Paul Catholic High School, representatives from East Catholic High School, diocesan priests, people from St. Gerard’s Center for Life, employees of ORTV, and various parishioners packed together in the San Damiano Room at the location of the Franciscan Life Center in Meriden, CT. The noise level of the excited chatting was hardly acceptable for such an early hour, but the energy could not be contained. At a time when these people would ordinarily be rising to go off to another day of work or to school, they were gathering to journey down to Washington, D.C. for the largest human rights protest in the world, the March for Life.
