2021 Archbishop's Annual Appeal

Reaching Out, Healing Together

The 2021 Archbishop's Annual Appeal is integral to the mission and services of the Archdiocese of Hartford. As in the past, this year's efforts will create new opportunities and expand existing services for those living and working within the Northern, Western, and Southern Vicariates.  Additionally, the Appeal ensures the funding necessary so that our vital ministries, seminarians, retired clergy, catholic schools and agencies continue to thrive serving thousands throughout the Archdiocese.

Praying the Rosary at IHOM

In these troubled times, we invite you to join the Respect Life Ministry for Rosary prayer at IHOM before each Sunday mass – for our nation, for Holy Mother Church, and to restore the Culture of Life in the world.    

 At Fatima, our Blessed Mother said:  "Pray the Rosary every day in honor of Our Lady of the Rosary to obtain peace in the world . . . for she alone can save it." (July 13, 1917)

Each Sunday at 9 a.m., we will unite ourselves, mentally and spiritually, in a designated set of Mysteries of the Rosary (please see the schedule below) –  and we will pray the Rosary silently – from wherever we are sitting.  In effect, we’ll  be praying “separately” – but together!  And the more participation we have, the more powerful will be the graces obtained!


Pope Francis proclaims “Year of St. Joseph”

With the Apostolic Letter “Patris corde” (“With a Father’s Heart”), Pope Francis recalls the 150th anniversary of the declaration of Saint Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church. To mark the occasion, the Holy Father has proclaimed a “Year of Saint Joseph” from December 8, 2020, to December 8, 2021.  "We need only ask Saint Joseph for the grace of graces: our conversion. Let us now make our prayer to him:


Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer,
Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
To you God entrusted his only Son;
in you Mary placed her trust;
with you Christ became man.
Blessed Joseph, to us too,
show yourself a father
and guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us grace, mercy and courage, and defend us from every evil. Amen."


Given in Rome, at Saint John Lateran, on 8 December, Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, in the year 2020, the eighth of my Pontificate.

Women’s Bible Study

In No Greater Love, You Will Experience the Unconditional Love Christ Has for You.  We often hear about Jesus’ passion and death, but imagine experiencing them for the very first time. In No Greater Love: A Biblical Walk Through Christ’s Passion, we are going to walk step-by-step with Jesus on his journey from his agony in the garden to his crucifixion on Calvary.

Along the way, we will unpack the biblical background to these events, the prophecies, and most especially, the ways Jesus is inviting us to walk more closely with him today. No Greater Love is a five-part Bible study program....

2/18-3/25 THURSDAY EVENINGS @7:00pm

For more information or to register, contact MELISSA at 860-459-6679 or missykh2@gmail.com. Due to the uncertainty of in person visits I was not requiring a study guide but visit ascensionpress.com if you would like one. I will provide some study questions during the study and homework for further understanding.

Online Giving Message

We are proud to announce that Our Lady of Hope is keeping up with technology, and now has the ability for online giving.  Contributions can be made to the parish online safety via an encrypted website.  Online giving makes it easy when you are unable to attend Mass.  It's real simple to do.  Here are two simple ways:

     1.  Sign up here at the website.  Click on the "online giving" button that is found on the home page.  For the first time user, just click on "create new account".  This is a one-time account set-up.  This allows you to make donations to the church with options as a one-time gift or recurring.

     2.  The second way for accessing online giving is from your phones. Simply download the app for free from Apple or Google stores.  The name of the app is "Online Giving by Our Sunday Visitor".  From there it's the same login process as the website.
