Marriage is arranged by calling the parish office at least six months in advance. Couples meet with Father Joe for an initial pastoral conversation before a wedding date can be set. Please do not make other plans until a date has been confirmed with the parish.

For the Sick, including pastoral home visits, Eucharist or the Anointing of the Sick can be arranged by calling the parish office. We also inquire at the Waterbury and Danbury Hospitals about parishioners who are patients there and try to visit them. Please remember to tell the hospital upon admission that you wish a visit by your parish. If you are at another hospital or care facility and would like a pastoral visit, please call the parish office.

Holy Orders: Information may be obtained from Father Joe or the Archdiocesan Office of Vocations (860-286-7670) or at www.vocationshartford.org.
