  • Change in date: Archdiocesan SYNOD: Parish Listening Session: Saturday, July 7th after the 5:00pm Mass

  • The Most Reverend Leonard P. Blair, Archbishop of Hartford, has ordered the convocation of an Archdiocesan Synod. A synod is a religious council. In this case, it will bring together representatives of the clergy, religious, and lay faithful throughout the Archdiocese to engage in focused discussion over the next two years and to make recommendations to Archbishop Blair.

    The purpose of the Synod will be to identify steps for “reinvigorating the life of this Archdiocese and ordering it in the most effective way to serve the mission of evangelization. The Synod is meant to clarify priorities and identify practical steps to promote the life and mission” of the Archdiocese.

    Please click here , to learn more about the SYNOD and the other options being made available for parishioners here at St. Margaret to provide their feedback.
