We all know that God manifests himself in many ways in our lives. One of those ways is through people. As a parish we feel blessed to have people who pray, work and learn with us. During this summer we had the great opportunity and blessing of having seminarian Nick Chapman with us. We had the opportunity to show him that our parish is active and alive and that he is always welcome to celebrate and walk with us in our faith. We wish Nick many blessings in his vocational journey and we raise our prayers to God in thanksgiving for the time he spent with us. May God help him, give him strength and wisdom so that he can carry out the mission that the Lord has granted him. Nick and his vocation to the priesthood will always be in our prayers.
Go with God!

Dear South Windsor Catholics- Goodbye!
Thank you for welcoming me into the life of the parish over the past eleven weeks! This weekend marks the end of my summer assignment and I want to express my gratitude to you all and to say goodbye.
It’s been a full summer. Some of the experiences I’ve had were sacramental, such as serving at daily and weekend Masses, accompanying Father to the hospital as he anointed dying parishioners, witnessing baptisms, and serving at funerals and graveside committals. Socially, I’ve met with parishioners for smoothies, sandwiches, breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. I’ve listened and prayed for those prayer requests which folks have approached me with. I got to know the youth in our parish over the week of Vacation Bible School and at last week’s altar server training. I’ve been blessed to interact with our office staff and see how our parish is run daily. And when I needed a break, I found leisure riding my bicycle out through the fields and hills of Ellington.
Please keep me in your prayers as I return to seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota. Please pray that I grow in my identity as a beloved son of God and that I might be bold and obedient in carrying out whatever He asks of me. I’ll treasure my time here in South Windsor. And if you’d like to keep in touch, I’d be happy to hear from you.

Thanks again and may God bless you,
