ANNOUNCEMENTS

 


 

ADVENT WREATH AND CANDLES - If anyone is in need of Advent candles and/or wreaths for this Advent Season, they are available at the church office.  You can purchase a set of 12" three purple and one pink candle for $5 per set.  The wreaths are brass and are 6" in diameter.  They fit very nicely on the dinner table!  The wreaths are $5 a piece.  Stop by and take a look!!

ALTAR SERVING TRAINING - We will begin training new altar servers in November.  We are looking for young people, grade 3 or above and who have made their First Communion to volunteer to perform this very important ministry.  Training will be offered at a number of different times.  Please call the Parish Office at 860-684-2705 to sign up your child and select a day of training.  Thank you!

CHILDREN'S LITURGY PROGRAMBeginning on October 14th, each Sunday we will be offering a Children's Liturgy program for children ages 3-5.  During Mass, children will be invited to the Sacristy where they will have a lesson and activities based on the day's scripture.  Please contact the parish office at 860-684-2705 if you are interested in having your child participate so that we can order materials.

BIBLE STUDY - Come join us as we start a New Bible Study.  Our Bible Study is starting Thursday, October 16, at 6:30 p.m. in the Parish Hall.  We will be studying the Book of Luke.  Everyone is welcome!

BEREAVEMENT SUPPORT GROUP - Living through grief is not easy but it does not have to be done alone.  The St. Bernard St. Matthew Community will offer a 9-week support program called "New Day" for those who have suffered the loss of a loved one.  The goal of this program is to provide a sense of community where support is given and received.  The "New Day' program is led by trained facilitators and includes prayer, discussion and journaling.  Although "New Day" is a faith-based program, it is not restricted to Catholics and all are welcome.

We will begin this program on October 2nd and it will run until the first week in December.  Group meetings will be held on Tuesday mornings from 10:15 - 11:45 a.m.  The group will be meeting in the Chapel at St. Mathew Church in Tolland, CT.  In order to accommodate individual needs, the group size for this program is limited to nine persons.  For further information or to register for the program, please call Deacon Ron Freedman (860-478-4539).
