Reeja Koonankeil, Matt Wilson and Father Sas attended the Synod Meeting in October 2019. The closing ceremony was postponed until now. It was originally scheduled for Pentecost 2020; then the pandemic hit. Now, the closing Mass for the Synod will finally be celebrated at the Oakdale Theatre in Wallingford on Friday, August 13, at 6:30pm.Each parish is asked to send a substantial representation to this celebration.
Because of the pandemic and the restrictions it imposed, this closing Synod Mass is all the more significant. The theme “Grow & Go” and the charting of a way forward for our local church is more important then ever in the aftermath of the pandemic and the ongoing challenges of pastoral planning.This being said, Saint John Fisher is expected to send a delegation of 30 parishioners, no more and no less. Bus transportation will be provided and is recommended. Details will follow for those who sign up. If you would like to be part of this historic event in the history of the Archdiocese of Hartford, please call the Parish Office at 860.295.0001 (open Mon-Th, 8:30am - 1:30pm) before the June 30th deadline.
