"We have loved them during life; let us not abandon them in death,
until we have conducted them by our prayers into the house of the Lord."
To have a priest offer an already scheduled weekday or Sunday Mass (including the Saturday Vigil) in thanksgiving, for the intentions of another person (such as on a birthday) or, as is most common, for the repose of the soul of someone who has died, please call the parish office for availability of dates and times at (860) 522-7128.
If you already have an intention that the priest will offer at Mass, please see the priest or the ushers before that Mass so that you may present the gifts of bread and wine.
