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 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm 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.

The Year Of St. Joseph

On the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Pope Francis proclaimed that the next 12 months will be a Year of Saint Joseph. The pope made the announcement on the 150th anniversary of Pope Pius IX’s proclamation of Saint Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church. In addition to an Apostolic Letter from the Holy Father entitled Patris Corde, an official decree was promulgated by the Apostolic Penitentiary establishing the Year of Saint Joseph so that every member of the faithful, following Saint Joseph’s example, may strengthen their life of faith daily in the complete fulfillment of God’s will.
 
The decree added that to mark the year the pope had granted special indulgences to Catholics who recite any approved prayer or act of piety in honor of Saint Joseph, noting the current health emergency and extending the indulgence in a particular way to the elderly, the sick, the dying, and all those who for legitimate reasons are unable to leave the house. To reaffirm the universality of Saint Joseph’s patronage in the Church, the decree also encouraged prayers and pious acts during the year on days specially connected to Saint Joseph, including: the Solemnity of Saint Joseph the Husband of Mary, the Feast of Saint Joseph the Worker, the Feast of the Holy Family, Saint Joseph Sunday in the Byzantine tradition, and the 19th of each month and every Wednesday (days dedicated to the saint in the Latin tradition).
   
May we use the next 12 months in particular to “grow in devotion to the Patron of the Universal Church” (Redemptoris Custos, Pope Saint John Paul II).

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.
