A Wedding Anniversary Celebration will be held on June 25th at St. Gabriel Church at 11am to honor parishioners who are celebrating a special anniversary and would like to renew their wedding vows during the 11:00am Mass. A reception will be held in the Church Hall afterwards for the married couples, their family and friends. We look forward to celebrating with you! If you will be attending, please plan to be at the back of the church by 10:45am.

Pentecost Sunday, May 28th
One of the main signs of Pentecost is the color red. It symbolizes joy and the fire of the Holy Spirit. Priests, deacons and choirs wear red vestments, and in modern times, the custom has extended to lay people in the congregation wearing red clothes as well. Therefore, we ask everyone who will be attending Mass this weekend to wear some article of red clothing in celebration of Pentecost.
Feast of Corpus Christi Celebration
After the 11am Mass on June 11th, we will have a procession to the Town Green and then return to Saint Gabriel Church for Adoration. Light refreshments will be served in the Church Hall following the service.

Please join the Health, Wellness & Caregiver Support Ministry on Thursday evening, June 8th, 2023, for a presentation by Sheryl Ravalese Maggipinto, of Healing Heart Nutrition. Ms. Maggipinto is a licensed dietitian-nutritionist, and her presentation will focus on both general nutrition, and, health and healing, through nutrition. The presentation will be held at St. Gabriel Church Hall, and will begin at 6:30 p.m.
Baby Bottle Drive – Birthright
Our parish will conduct a baby bottle drive to support Birthright of Greater Hartford. Birthright’s
guiding principle is: “It is the right of every pregnant women to give birth and the right of every
child to be born.” Empty baby bottles will be available after Masses on Mother’s Day, May 14
weekend. We ask that you take the bottles home, fill them with coins, cash, or check and return
them on the weekend of June 3/4. As you will see from the insert inside the bottle, you may make a donation in honor or in memory of a loved one. Birthright will send an acknowledgement card of your gift of life. This is an opportunity for our church families to have hands-on involvement in a project that saves the lives of unborn children and makes a difference in the mothers’ lives.
Thank you for any help you can give.
