Mass Times / Horario de Misas

Beginning effective immediately, Bishop Michael R. Cote has mandated that all public celebrations of Mass be temporarily suspended in all churches of the Diocese of Norwich., and continuing until further notice.

This decision was made in the light of the recommendations of healthcare professionals and Gov. Ned Lamont's executive order requiring the closure of all gatherings of 50 or more people, including religious, spiritual, or worship gatherings of such size.

While our parish and the Diocese of Norwich continue to try and keep all parishioners updated on the changes in our Catholic Community during this time, we are also seeking your assistance.
Many churches are having an especially difficult time coping with Coronavirus for a number of reasons. In addition to offering spiritual guidance and education on a many levels; we have numerous monthly operating expenses that are covered through our weekly offertory. We prayerfully ask that all parishioners continue to tithe during these difficult times in order to maintain the daily operations of the parish. Without your support and weekly offering we will not be able to maintain expenses. Donations may be mailed to the office at any time, or for your convenience we also accept online donations.

You will all continue to be in our prayers especially during this time of uncertainty. May we pray in hope that all of us may be safe and healthy during this pandemic.

You may send your offerings to St. Mary Star of the Sea Church, 10 Huntington Street, New London, CT 06385.

Debido al Coronavirus, no habrá misas diarias hasta un nuevo aviso. Esta información está bajo la dirección de la Diócesis de Norwich.

Mientras nuestra parroquia y la Diócesis de Norwich continúan tratando de mantener a todos los feligreses actualizados sobre los cambios en nuestra comunidad católica durante este tiempo, también necesitamos su ayuda.
Muchas iglesias están teniendo dificultades para hacer frente al Coronavirus por diversas razones. Además de ofrecer orientación espiritual y educación en muchos niveles; tenemos numerosos gastos mensuales que son cubiertos a través de nuestra ofrenda semanal. En oración pedimos que durante estos tiempos dificiles, todos los feligreses continúen entregando sus ofrendas para mantener las operaciones diarias de la parroquia. Sin su apoyo y la ofrenda semanal no podremos mantener los gastos. Las donaciones pueden enviarse en cualquier momento por correo a la oficina, o para su comodidad, también aceptamos donaciones en línea.

Todos ustedes continuarán en nuestras oraciones, especialmente durante este tiempo de incertidumbre. Oremos con la esperanza de que todos podamos estar seguros y saludables durante esta pandemia
