Coronavirus Information

Directive From Archbishop Blair

Due to the ongoing Health World Wide Pandemic.  All weekend Masses are canceled until further notice.

Weekday masses resume- June 8th @ 12:00 pm...

 

Please click on the archdiocesan crest (left) for guidelines on reopening the parish churches and other sacramental observances. 

More information/updates to come

Our Lady of Fatima Church will be open daily Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday from 8:00 am - noon, on Wednesdays 8:00am - 5:30pm Mass, and on Saturdays & Sundays 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

 

Sacrament of Reconciliation - has been suspended and is offered by appointment only 

Starting June 13th -Saturday Reconciliation time resumes- 2:30pm - 3:30 pm. 

 “Where the individual faithful find themselves in the painful impossibility of receiving sacramental absolution, it should be remembered that perfect contrition, coming from the love of God, beloved above all things, expressed by a sincere request for forgiveness (that which the penitent is at present able to express) and accompanied by votum confessionis, that is, by the firm resolution to have recourse, as soon as possible, to sacramental confession, obtains forgiveness of sins, even mortal ones (cf. CCC, no. 1452).” 

 

Let us remain spiritually united as a people of God.

Make a Spiritual Communion

Since churches are closed and you cannot receive Holy Communion, make a Spiritual Communion instead, asking God to come into your heart as if you received Him sacramentally — Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity. For instance, you can say this:

Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Blessed Sacrament. 
I love You above all things and I desire You in my soul. 
Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, 
come at least spiritually into my heart. 
As though You were already there, 
I embrace You and unite myself to You; 
permit not that I should ever be separated from You. 
Amen. 

 

 

Did you know?

The Holy Father encourages all the faithful to pray the Rosary:

The Respect Life Office would like to share with you the Holy Father's encouragement to all the faithful to pray the Rosary to Our Lady during. The Holy Father also provides two prayers to be said at the conclusion of the Rosary that we may be in union with him in prayer to Our Lady. 

Click on the Rosary to read the letter.

 

 

             

Mass intentions scheduled for any masses that were canceled, if not rescheduled, will be said privately by Fr. Robert.

Christ is risen! He is risen, indeed!

In this unprecedented time in which we are forced to remain physically distant, may we do our best this Easter to respond to Archbishop Blair's call for us all to remain spiritually close in our celebration of the Lord's resurrection.

Asking for God's blessing upon all of us throughout the Archdiocese of Hartford, we offer this

 

Renewal of Baptismal Promises & Blessing

in the hopes that our Lord will grant you and your loved ones a truly Blessed and Happy Easter!

Holy Week

Palm Sunday

Distribution of Palms will take place the 1st weekend we resume our regular mass schedule.

 

 

 

 

Holy Thursday

 The church is simply decorated for the institution of the Sacrament of the Eucharist and Holy Orders.  At the end of Mass a procession brings the Eucharist to a very special place...the Altar of Repose.
