A Letter from our Pastor regarding the New Milford Churches

____________________________________________________________________________________________

From Fr. Gerry:

Two years ago, the Hartford Archdiocese proposed a restructuring of churches in the diocese. This was in response to a severe shortage of Priests. Since I came to New Milford in 2017, 25 priests have retired and only 8 have been ordained. The next five years will see a similar pattern and that does not include sudden deaths and sickness. Archbishop Blair has proposed one Parish for each town/city to serve the Catholic population. That parish can include two, three or four churches. In new Milford that would mean the Parish of St. Francis would be composed of two churches: St. Francis and Our Lady of the Lakes, with one Pastor. So in this new restructuring all that would be new is that we would be more unified with one Parish Council and one Finance Committee and one Trustee from each Parish.

I am planning for this restructuring to take place this June. I am planning a Parish Council meeting for both Churches in June on a Sunday at 11:30 a.m. a the St. Francis Parish Center on 1 Elm Street. If you are interested in being a representative on this new Parish Council, please contact Henry Beary.

God Bless. Fr. Gerry
