"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.

The three traditional practices of Lent based in the Bible are prayer, fasting, and almsgiving (Matthew 6:1-21). The Archbishop's Annual Appeal is a great opportunity for almsgiving. Moved by Mercy we can be generous toward our brothers and sisters in need supported through the Archbishop's Annual Appeal. For more information, to see the video, and to donate, click here.
The Archdiocese of Hartford is inviting people to fast from using cell phones on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday in an initiative called: “I Phone Fast!”
Silencing our busy phones, gives God a chance to call our hearts. Please consider including this practice in addition to fasting from food, almsgiving and prayer, which are traditional disciplines by which the Church observes Lent.
Confessions every Monday during the Season of Lent from 6 PM - 7 PM in every Catholic Church in the Archdiocese of Hartford. The Confessionals in Saint Augustine Church are located near the main (front) entrance. There will also be Adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament during that time.

Stations of the Cross every Friday during Lent in Saint Augustine Church at 7 PM (Bilingual: English & Spanish). The Stations of the Cross are a 14-step Catholic devotion that commemorates Jesus Christ's last day on Earth as a man. The 14 devotions, or stations, focus on specific events of His last day, beginning with His condemnation. The stations are commonly used as a mini pilgrimage as the individual moves from station to station. At each station, the individual recalls and meditates on a specific event from Christ's last day. Specific prayers are recited, then the individual moves to the next station until all 14 are complete. Come and join us!
