As was announced at the end of July, Fr. Tom is being reassigned by the Archdiocese of Hartford and the Jesuit Community of California to St. Gregory the Great Parish, Bristol, CT in September. Our prayers go with Fr. Tom in this new ministry. We thank him for his five years at St. Rita Parish and the new Parish of Divine Mercy.
Fr. Tom returned to Connecticut to be near his mother who is elderly and in failing health. He ministered in Hamden so that he could assist in her caring. While we are saddened to see Fr. Tom leaving Divine Mercy Parish, it is understandable that he be closer to his mother.
We are planning a celebration of thanksgiving for Fr. Tom on the weekend of September 8th and 9th. Please watch the bulletin for details.
