Dear Friends, 

A good friend to our parishioners is moving on! George Zamary announced to me last week, that he will be retiring on September 30th. We thank George for his years of service to the parish, and we pray for his next stage in life! 

George has cared for many of our families over the years. Our parish has seen his loving touch in ministering to the homebound, in leading our outreach to seniors, and assisting people in preparing their family funerals. May God bless him! 

You will see George around the parish as a parishioner and a volunteer in our religious education program. 

Peace, 

Msgr. Ryan

It is easy to join our parish family in watching Formed.org.

Dear Friends, 

Where were you on September 11, 2001. I had just returned to the rectory after saying mass. I found my parish staff standing in front of the TV. There were tears, fear, uncertainty, and the question “What do we Do”? 

The doors to the church were opened for the next days. People came to pray and others were there to support and comfort those that came to pray. A grandmother came to say her granddaughter was on one of the planes! The only answer was to witness Jesus to each other! 

I ask you to join me in prayer for all who died on 9/11. Pray for the family and friends that lost someone. Pray for peace in our world. Amen!

Dear Friends, 

This will be a very important year for our Religious Education Program. On August 23rd, we began our registration process for the coming school year. We plan to begin our program on Saturday, September 18th, so we encourage our families to register early. (there is a discount for families that register early!) The forms have been mailed, emailed and are on the Faith Formation page of the website! The forms are also available on the parish bulletinboard in the Church or by contacting the Religious Education Office at 203-375-6133. 

We need all parishioners to spread the word. We are introducing a new class for kindergarten age children! We are searching for the children who did not return last year during the pandemic, especially the children who missed their First Communion. Our classes were much smaller last year. We are inviting the younger children to join us. It is our plan to meet and walk with our children so they can learn about Jesus! 

Thank you for your help in spreading the invitation!

Dear Friends, 

As we begin the new school year, and we assess various parish ministries, we will be asking for your help! We will need to ask for volunteers! We ask you to pray and ask the guidance of Jesus to answer his call. In the coming weeks, we will be listing volunteer opportunities. 

Peace,

Msgr. Ryan
