Let us welcome Fr. Piedrahita, P.S.S. to our parish May 22nd / 23rd

Outreach Priest: 

Please welcome Rev. Fr. Carlos Piedrahita, P.S.S., who will speak at all the Masses on behalf of Cross Catholic Outreach which was founded to create a meaningful link between parishes in America and the priests and nuns working in the Church overseas in the Caribbean, Africa, Asia, Central and South America. Please be generous in your response to Fr.’s appeal.  Brochures will be provided if you wish to support this worthy Catholic ministry.

Father Carlos Piedrahita was ordained in 2013 for the Archdiocese of Hartford, CT. He joined the Diocese of Tyler, Texas. He was born in Medellin, Colombia. Before beginning his seminary studies, Fr. Carlos earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and a Master’s in Strategic Management of Costs and Finances at EAFIT University in Colombia. He studied Philosophy at the University of St. Thomas, Houston, TX and completed a Master’s in Divinity at St. John’s Seminary in Brighton, MA. He is a candidate for a Sacred Theology License in Spirituality at Boston College, where he is writing his thesis on the Humanity of Christ in the works of St. Ignatius of Loyola and St. Teresa of Avila. He also received training as a Director of Spiritual Exercises and Spiritual Director at St. Beuno’s Jesuit Spirituality Centre in North Wales, United Kingdom. He has served as a parochial vicar at the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Waterbury, St. Paul Church and St. Augustin in Glastonbury, the Torrington Catholic Cluster, and  St. Matthew Church in Forestville; as parish administrator of St. Mary Church in Newington; and as an assistant Master of Ceremonies of the Archdiocese.

Our Lady of Fatima Linked to Most Holy Trinity

As of March 1, 2021  Our Lady of Fatima and Most Holy Trinity are linked.

Fr. Andres Mendoza, Pastor, assisted by Fr. Eduar Gutierrez, Parochial Vicar, and Fr. Robert Landback, Senior Parochial Vicar.

This linkage will be followed by merger of the two parishes (and a later merger with the Church of the Resurrection). For the parishioners of all three parishes, this is a major turning point. All have had their own separate parish histories of worship and service and sacrificial support by parishioners. Now, we are being asked to embrace a new vision as members of one parish across the whole town, and to create a new history together with eventually three campuses.

A transition team will be formed to plan the merger of Our Lady of Fatima and Most Holy Trinity, assisted by the pastoral planning department of the Archdiocese.

May God bless the Catholic community of Wallingford!  

Mother's Day

A Spiritual Bouquet to Our Blessed Mother 

 
May has traditionally been observed as a month dedicated to Mary, Mother of God. It is also the month in which we celebrate our earthly mothers through the observance of Mother’s Day. Mother’s Day provides a beautiful opportunity to pray for all mothers, including those who are unexpectedly pregnant in difficult circumstances. It can be a difficult holiday for many, including those struggling with infertility, those who have lost children, and those who have lost their own mothers.
 
We invite you to join us in offering a spiritual bouquet to Our Blessed Mother for Mother’s Day. We invite you to place written prayer intentions to be entrusted to Our Lady in the basket next to the Statue of our Blessed Mother in the Sanctuary.  Pre-cut notecards and pencils will be available as you enter Church the weekend of May 8th/9th.
 
To participate at home:
Set up a small table for your Marian spiritual bouquet. Place a statue or image of Our Lady with a small basket for prayer intentions and a vase with water on a table. Put writing utensils and something to write on nearby.  Invite household family members to participate in the spiritual bouquet. Participants can write down on the notecards or slips of paper what they would like to ask Our Blessed Mother to intercede for. They can then be invited to place their prayer intentions in the basket, in thanks for Our Lady’s maternal love and care.  If you participate from home, please consider sharing pictures with our parish family. We would love to see them! Email pictures to ourladyoffatima.[email protected]

Make a Spiritual Communion

If you cannot physically 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.

Extension of Dispensation from Sunday Mass Obligation

On March 13, 2020, each and every Catholic in the Archdiocese of Hartford was dispensed from the obligation of attending Sunday Mass by Archbishop Leonard P. Blair due to the potential danger of the coronavirus pandemic. The dispensation was exteded several times.

Further Extension of the Dispensation from the Obligation of Sunday Mass
With the continuation of limitations on Mass attendance and our responsibility to ensure the health
and safety of our Catholic people, the Archbishop is extending the dispensation from the obligation
to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days up to and including Sunday, May 23rd, which is
Pentecost Sunday

The Archdiocese of Hartford continues to monitor the severity of the situation surrounding the pandemic and will provide updates regarding decisions reached for the archdiocese as they are made.

As was announced by Governor Lamont, the state of Connecticut on Friday, November 6, 2020, will revert back to more rigorous restrictions, implementing “Phase 2.1”, to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Within these new mandatory changes, religious gatherings have been effected, and the following change will be required: attendance at Mass and other liturgies for all churches in the Archdiocese of Hartford will be restricted to 50% of capacity or 100 persons, whichever is less. In addition, as other meetings at venues have been reduced to 25 people indoors and 50 people outdoors, any upcoming non-liturgical events, meetings, or gatherings held at parishes will need to follow those limits.

Sacrament of Reconciliation -  Saturdays 3:00 pm - 3:30 pm @ OLoF, Mondays during Adoration 6:00-7:00pm @ MHT, or by appointment. 

 “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.
