town-wide tag sale - Sat may 19 9am - 3pm
Our church will be participating in the town-wide tag sale again this year with all monies raised going to the church. We will have our own items for sale as you are spring cleaning, think about what great stuff you might be able to donate! Please bring your donations only from May 13 – 15 as we have no storage space. We will also be renting out spaces to whomever wants one - $15 for a 10’x10’ space. We will have a bake sale as well as sell grinders and salad for lunch. Think about any ways you might be able to participate: run a booth, donate items for sale, bake, donate fixings for the grinders and salads, set up, clean up.
This is usually a fun day so don’t miss out! If you’re interested in volunteering, including possibly coordinating the event, please contact the church via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message on the phone – 860-742-7696. Applications for paid spaces are available from the church office or on the table outside Parish Hall.
Weekly & Monthly Activities - food pantry and supply Sunday
Supply Sunday Continues
Supply Sunday takes place on the last Sunday of each month. We ask people to bring a certain item once a month to help keep the church supplied with basics like paper goods, plastic wrap and the like. This helps to stretch our budget and keep the church supplied with the necessities. For the month of May 2018, we are asking for toilet paper.
THE FOOD PANTRY WILL BE CLOSED MAY 28 IN OBSERVANCE OF MEMORIAL DAY.
The food pantry hours are held on Monday evenings (5-7pm). There are additional hours for Senior Citizens at 9 am on the following Wednesdays in May: the 9th & 23rd. Your donations can be left in the box in the foyer leading into the Parish Hall. To find out what items are needed for the food pantry, or to arrange another time to access the food pantry, please talk with Joan Soucy (860) 208-3226. Food Pantry needs for the month are:
May 6 juice, canned fruits and vegetables May 13 canned meat and tuna

The Mobile Foodshare Van continues to come every other Wednesday with fresh produce and other grocery items for everyone, regardless of income. They will be here from 9 – 9:30 am on Wednesdays May 2, 16, 30. Please bring your own bags.
