  • Important CoVid19 Parish Update

    Since a further threat of the spread of COVID-19 has arisen, the following additional actions are now in place for all Masses throughout the Hartford Archdiocese:

    All attending Mass (vaccinated and unvaccinated) are recommended to wear a
    mask.

    A separate section of the church (the left side of the left wing of the church) is now marked and reserved for those people wearing mask who do not want to sit near those not wearing masks.

    All Eucharistic Ministers serving at Mass must be vaccinated and will continue wearing masks while distributing Holy Communion.

  • 2021 Archbishop’s Annual Appeal

  • .

  • As we approach the fourth quarter of this year, I know that many of you make your charitable contributions during this period as final tax planning measures are taken into account. I’m pleased to report that the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal is now within just $25,000 of its final goal. Typical of our Archdiocesan parishes, to date about 20% of our St. Margaret parishioner base has contributed so far to the Appeal, an so we ask the rest of you to please take us over the finish line during this final fourth quarter period. No amount is too small to give, and we realize that the covid situation has compromised many of our parishioner’s charitable giving plans. Again, just please give what you can, as it won’t take much to bring us to the additional $25,000 if those who have not given yet just give their fair share. And I know that some of you would also be interested in a “match” campaign to then double what is brought in over the next few weeks. Please contact us if you’d like to pursue that strategy.
    Thank you for your support of our St, Margaret’s community
    Pax,

    Fr. Phil
