From the Desk of Father Dennis,

Organ Music

As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

                              Joshua 24:15


Indeed, we serve the Lord in many ways, through our prayer and praise in Word and Sacrament. We receive nourishment through the prayers and actions of the Mass. One of the centerpieces is organ music which enhances our singing. Someone once said to sing is to pray twice.

I am pleased to announce that the parish has received a $10,000 inaugural donation to our recently established organ fund. The donor has requested that this gift remain anonymous, and of course we respect that.

Our organ is over forty years old, and it is starting to show its age. Eventually, it will need to be substantially refurbished or replaced. Hence, the organ fund which is now open to receive donations or bequests or memorial gifts of any size. It is a Restricted Fund, of which none of the gift goes to Hartford. It stays here for the purpose of replacing or refurbishing our organ.

Please feel welcome to follow suit of the inaugural donation. Any gift of any amount is welcome. See me anytime.

Music to my ears,

 Reverend Dennis J. Vinenzo
