Grateful for Efforts of Properties and Cemeteries Office

The summer of 2020 has certainly been one for the record books. We continued to social distance, perhaps returned to work, and had to consider all options regarding childcare and school academics.

In addition to all these difficult tasks Connecticut experienced some severe weather. When I drove to work after the storms, I saw several trees uprooted, limbs and branches down, and debris in roads. Many people lost power for several days. I saw town maintenance trucks, utility trucks and tree companies working both late night and early morning hours trying to clear all the debris left from the storms. With all our recently shared challenges, we can be stronger together. Let us continue to move forward as “One Faith, One Family.”

Our Diocesan Properties and Cemeteries is just one of the many organizations that benefit from the Annual Catholic Appeal. Our dedicated team has worked vigorously throughout the pandemic, keeping our buildings in good repair and landscaping the properties while also maintaining and operating our cemeteries.

In addition, they diligently sanitized and updated our diocesan offices and properties to ensure we all work in a safe environment. Our employees are all truly grateful to the Properties and Cemeteries staff for their hard work.

Our ACA donations continue to be extremely important to help all of our ministries carry out their spiritually affirming and life-changing missions.

To make a contribution to our 2020 ACA “One Faith, One Family,” please go online to or call the Office of Development at (860) 886-1928. Thank you so much for your generosity. Stay safe and be well.
