Pastors Message

Dear Parishioners,

I wish all of you a very Blessed Easter.  It is my hope that the Risen Lord will always be in your hearts, minds and souls and that we will do our best to become more and better disciples of Christ.

Due to the fact that I am still the only assigned Priest at this time for our Parish, starting next Friday, April 22nd we will no longer have Friday daily Mass for the time being. 

You are always in my daily prayers.

God Bless you all,

Father Michael Santiago

 


We hope that you and your families remained healthy and safe during these unprecedented and challenging times. In the wake of this COVID-19 pandemic our primary concerns remain the health and wellbeing of our parishioners. Please see the schedule for the mass times for all three churches. Please note the 8AM Mass will be celebrated at St. Frances Cabrini Church and the 11AM Mass will be at St. Therese. At both of these locations please use the front doors ONLY. Also, please note all Mass intentions will be switched to these locations as well. The Saturday Mass at 4pm and the Sunday Mass at 9:30AM will be held at St Barnabas Church. At this location please use back doors only. Also, there is no need to sign up for Mass. We will continue to have the  churches cleaned and sanitized before each Mass.
Thank you for all of your support during these times.

A note from the Most Reverend Leonard P. Blair:

Circumstances have kept changing over the past two years with regard to precautionary measures at Mass, but some basics are more important
than ever and some may need to be reintroduced given that the highly contagious variant is still spreading. CDC is recommending masks and indoor
social distancing again for the time being, and even in the absence of a civil requirement parishioners should be asked to wear a mask. Spacing in church
should also be maintained appropriately, including the communion line.
For now, it would be best to refrain from unnecessary circulation in church, from processions, and from greeting or gathering people before or after Mass.
Unvaccinated persons, however, should not be present in the sacristy, sanctuary or distributing Holy Communion. And it goes without saying that anyone who has
tested positive belongs in quarantine until they have completed the prescribed course of action.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Most Reverend Leonard P. Blair
Archbishop of Hartford

Thank you, in advance, for all you do for our Parish here at St. Elizabeth of the Trinity Parish.
Rev. Michael Santiago
