FOR OUR TELEVISION MASS VIEWERS: Please note that the video production equipment that generates the text that is seen on the screen (priest and lecture names, etc.) during the television Mass has failed. Unfortunately, it is an expensive piece of equipment and is being evaluated for repair or replacement. It is old and may not be repairable, in which case we would need to purchase new equipment and then train staff on the new technology before we would be able to place it in service. At this time, we do not have an estimated date for when this will be fixed. We thank you for your patience.

Photo by Richard Matt of Naugatuck. Taken on his cell phone camera near I-91 in Windsor, CT.

Richard says, “I had listened to the Afterglow and Evening Prayer on WJMJ 88.9 FM while traveling.  Pulling off the highway to reflect, I turned to my left and was witness to this inspiring sunset. Coincidence?...... Hardly.”
