Read the daily quote from Pope Francis

 

Welcome to our Church

 

You enter this church...not as a stranger, but as a guest of God.  God is your heavenly Father.  Come, then, with joy in your heart and thanks on your lips into God's presence, offering God your love and service.  Be grateful to the strong and the loyal ones who, in the name of Jesus Christ, built this place in worship, and to all who have beautified it and allowed it with their prayers and praise.  Ask God's blessings on those who love this house of faith as the inspiration of their labor, rejoicing in the power of the Holy Spirit and may that blessing rest on you, both on your going out and your coming in.

ATTENTION!!

Change in Time for Mass and the Sacrament of Reconciliation

Effective June 18, 2016

Announced by Father Tim last weekend (May 7th/8th)

The new Mass schedule is as follows:

Saturday Vigil Mass -     5:00pm  Immaculate Heart of Mary

Sunday Masses (these are unchanged)

                                    8:00am  Immaculate Conception

                                    9:30am  Immaculate Heart of Mary

                                   11:30am  Immaculate Conception

Daily Masses (these are unchanged)

                Tuesday        8:00am  Immaculate Conception

            Wednesday        8:00am  Immaculate Heart of Mary

              Thursday         NO MASS

                   Friday        8:00am  Immaculate Conception

Sacrament of Reconciliation

        Saturday     1:00 - 2:30pm  Immaculate Conception (By Appointment)

                         3:30 - 4:45pm   Immaculate Heart of Mary (No appt needed)

                                                       

To Summarize:

Beginning June 18, the Vigil Mass at Immaculate Heart of Mary will begin at 5 PM.  There will be no Vigil Mass at Immaculate Conception.

The time for the Sacrament of Reconciliation at Immaculate Heart of Mary will be 3:30-4:45 PM.  This is an hour later than it has been for the past several years.

Confessions will be available at Immaculate Conception.  However, this will be by appointment only.  Either call me at 860 379-5215 or email me at fathertimobrien@yahoo.com ahead of time so that we can set a time that is mutually agreeable.  I have to do it this way because I want to extend to New Hartford hours for the Sacrament of Reconciliation but I need to have some flexibility because Saturdays are often busy with weddings, funerals and meetings.

Please know that I am aware that these changes will have an impact in the lives of a number of parishioners.  I hope that we all appreciate the fact that they are necessary and that change also offers an opportunity for growth.  Let us trust in the Holy Spirit's presence as we continue to work towards the merger of Immaculate Conception and Immaculate Heart of Mary Churches and move forward as one community of faith.  Please know that every day you are in my prayers. Please pray for me.                  

-Father Tim
