Vocations Corner
  Father Gregory Galvin, Director of Priestly Vocations Signs of fall’s arrival are popping up everywhere. The leaves are changing colors and cooler air has arrived. Before we know it, we’ll prepare to cook a turkey with all the fixings as we visit our relatives and give thanks to God for our many blessings of faith, family and country. Fall is here, and life has quickened from the slower, more relaxing months of summer. School students and seminarians returned to their studies within the past month. While these changes take place, the Diocese o...

Teaching Children the Art of Joyful Giving
By Mary-Jo McLaughlin Do you recall as a child viewing commercials of famine-stricken children in Africa while watching Saturday morning cartoons? Seeing those pictures, how many of us were compelled to break open the piggy bank and send money to charities hoping to ease the guilt of having more than those hungry children? I remember trick-or-treating with the orange UNICEF box, asking for donations for those same starving children. I guess it eased some guilt I was experiencing by overindulging in candy while children around the world were suffering. One Halloween, ...

The Final Word? Trust Me, Men… It’s Not Us!
By Mark C. McCann Recently, I attended a series of Christian talks on the “Gifts of the Holy Spirit” given at a local Protestant church. I thought it would be good to understand more clearly the evangelical point of view on the subject of gifts and how it compared to Catholic teaching. As I listened to the speaker offer his opinions on the subject, I was called to consider the Spirit behind those gifts and the role he plays in guiding the Church. One thing Catholics have is an anchor to the teaching and traditions of the Church that have been passed down t...

By Andrea Hoisl The Pontifical Mass for the Partnership on Disability had a few hundred extra members on the planning committee this year!  The students at St. Joseph School in North Grosvenordale played an active role in the Mass as well as the reception. A member of the seventh-grade class, Maya Chojnicki, was a reader at the Mass and a member of the kindergarten class, Kelsey Terranova accompanied by her parents, were the gift bearers. But participation did not stop there - every student made a drawing with a special message about how people with disabilities ...

OFF TO A GREAT START !
Thanks to a number of parishes and churches, and hard-working pro-life reps, we began our 40 Days For Life campaign with a great turnout. Following the kick-off Vigil Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, prayer warriors were out and about at 12 Case St. early the next morning. Even though we didn’t have the first day adopted by a parish, we still managed to cover the hours. Many thanks to the parishioners from St. John’s in Uncasville, St. Matthias in East Lyme, St. Agnes in Niantic, St. Michaels in Pawcatuck, All Saints in Somers, St. Patrick’s Cathe...

Saint Joseph School Golf Tournament A Big Success
FCC News Desk St. Joseph School in North Grosvenordale recently held its sixth annual Julia Marcoux Memorial Golf Tournament at CT National in Putnam on Thursday, October 3. With prayers and divine intervention, the skies stayed rain-free throughout the tournament, allowing for the approximately 125-player field to enjoy a day at the links in support of the Pre-K through Grade 8 school. As golfers arrived to register in the late morning hours, they were greeted with a delicious luncheon sponsored by Day-Kimball Hospital, the Foster Corporation, and the MacKe...
