Further Extension of Dispensation from Sunday Mass Obligation
As was announced by Governor Lamont, the State of Connecticut, on Friday, November 6, 2020, will revert back to more rigorous restrictions, implementing "Phase 2.1", to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Attendance at Mass for all churches in the Archdiocese of Hartford will be restricted to 50% of capacity or 100 persons, whichever is less. As for Sunday Mass, the dispensation from the Sunday obligation previously granted to all Catholics of the archdiocese by the Archbishop has now been extended through Tuesday, February 16, 2021. This will remain in effect even though the public celebration of Sunday Mass has resumed. Guidelines for opening of churches throughout the Archdiocese of Hartford can be found here.
Happy Thanksgiving!11-26-2020Fr. John Granato
My Dear Friends,
This Thursday is Thanksgiving. We will have Mass at 9 am that day at St. Maurice Church. It is only fitting that we begin that secular holiday for our country with a religious celebration, for the word Eucharist itself means thanksgiving. The prayers at Mass that day are especially fitting. The opening prayer says, “Father all-powerful, your gifts of love are countless and your goods infinite; as we come before you on Thanksgiving Day with gratitude for your kindness, open our hearts to have concern for every man, woman, and child, so that we may share your gifts of loving service.” The offertory prayer says, “God our Father, from whose hand we have received generous gifts so that we might learn to share your blessings in gratitude, accept these gifts of bread and wine, and let the perfect sacrifice of Jesus draw us closer to all our brothers and sisters in the human family.” And post communion prayer says, “In this celebration, O Lord our God, you have shown us the depths of your love for all your children; help us, we pray, to reach out in love to all your people, so that we may share with them the good things of time and eternity.”READ MORE
