CHRISTMAS 2020

SAINT TERESA OF CALCUTTA PARISH

NEW HOMILY SERIES (ADVENT 2020)

UNWRAPPING CHRISTMAS


In our heart of hearts, we all want to be generous – to be people who are givers. This is because we bear the image of God, and God is a giver. God loves us so much that he gave his most precious gift at Christmas, sending His Son into the world. This is why during the Christmas season we give, as well. In this series, we look at how Christmas invites us into a life of generosity.


Religious education Program  (ADVENT 2020)


In the Christmas Spirit

When we think of the Christmas Spirit, we often think about lights, decorations, Santa, Christmas cookies, and of course gifts. God has given us the greatest gift in His Son Jesus, but after Jesus left the Earth, God sent down another gift - the Holy Spirit - to live with us. With the Holy Spirit, we are never alone, and we are equipped to experience the beauty of God’s love as we do His work. Like a tree that bears fruit, when we live in the Holy Spirit, we also bear the fruit of the Holy Spirit, which is especially meaningful during the Advent season of giving. This series, we’ll talk about how three fruits of the Holy Spirit - Peace, Kindness, and Joy - are gifts that truly bless others during the Christmas season and all year round.

Extension of Dispensation from Sunday Mass Obligation

On March 13, 2020, each and every Catholic in the Archdiocese of Hartford was dispensed from the obligation of attending Sunday Mass by Archbishop Leonard P. Blair due to the potential danger of the coronavirus pandemic. This dispensation was most recently extended on May 27, 2020, with the release of the document 'Opening Churches for Public Worship in the Archdiocese of Hartford,' which stated, “As for Sunday Mass, the dispensation from the Sunday obligation previously granted to all Catholics of the archdiocese by the Archbishop has now been extended through Sunday, September 6, 2020.”

In light of continued uncertainty regarding the extent and duration of the coronavirus in the state of Connecticut and throughout the Archdiocese of Hartford, Archbishop Blair has now extended this dispensation from the Sunday obligation through Saturday, November 28, 2020, which is the last day of the current liturgical year.

The Archdiocese of Hartford continues to monitor the severity of the situation surrounding the pandemic and will provide updates regarding decisions reached for the archdiocese as they are made.
