Other Ministries

BEREAVEMENT MINISTRY - After the death of a parishioner, a sympathy note is sent to the family offering private counseling or the option of speaking to someone from the bereavement ministry team. Each November a Mass is offered for those who have been buried from OLF in the previous year, and family and friends are invited to this event, followed by a breakfast reception. An informal seminar is held before Thanksgiving called "Getting Through the Holidays After the Death of a Loved One." And when the need is apparent, a bereavement support group is formed, meeting for four evening sessions in the spring or fall. Please contact Sr. Celine Flynn at 203-216-4541, for more information.

FIRST SATURDAY DEVOTIONS - Each First Saturday there is the devotion to Our Lady of Fatima. Following 8:00 a.m. Mass, there is recitation of the Rosary and prayers to Our Blessed Mother. This devotion includes attending Mass, receiving Our Lord, and spending 15 minutes meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary. You are also encouraged to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation within the week before or after this First Saturday devotion.

 

 

RESPECT LIFE - The parish Respect Life Ministry fosters respect and legal protection for every human life from the moment of fertilization until natural death. The ministry educates parishioners about current pro-life issues including abortion, euthanasia, stem cell research, cloning, assisted suicide, death penalty, and end of life medical issues. Please contact Kathleen/Tim Dineen, 762-7674 for more information.
