I have been with this parish that is under the Pope in Rome. Individuals and famillies come to our parish finds it is different than other. The Parish embraces all and we are a true parish family. Most everyone knows everyone. Every Sunday between both the Liturgy in Ukrainian at 9am and the English liturgy at 11am. People come together over coffee and cake and socialize. If there is one in need, or sick, members of the parish alway help that person out in various way. We support each other motionally and spiritually.As a parishioner you has lost her dad at the age of 17 and my mom about 3 years ago. My parish family has embraced me and helped me get through the tough times and help celebrate the joys. In my parish I have an extended family who are always there for me. Many of the senior members who were close to my parents have become serogate parents to me. One some one joins our parish, they are amazed on how they are warmly accepted. There are no organs or other instruments...only the pure voices raised in prayer, which will fill everyones heart with the people, love and joy of our blessed Father, Son, oHoly Spirit and the Blessed Mother as well as all the Saints. All are welcome any time to pray and or celebrate God's unabiding Love
If you are looking for a new church or a new catholic /religious experience please stop at St. Charles Church in Bpt, CT. Father "O" is the best priest I ever met ! He is a real people person and a leader in his community! This guy should be a saint ! But dont take my word for it, stop in on a Sunday and see for your self ! Even has live music! I visited this church about 10 yrs ago and it was falling apart ! However, today it does not look like the same old church! Major renovations was done, New bell tower, Awning in front & back, parking lot, and a paint job to name a few things. Wow I did not recognized this church. Stop in and check it out when you are ready! You will not regret it !
Truly house of God. No mater where you are on the life's journey, you will be accommodated in this church.
