Your Wardens and Vestry are proud to report that the 2018 campaign for electrical and lighting upgrades is making progress! As you know, the outdoor lights at the entrances were upgraded earlier this year. Now, prior to Christmas, you will see the parking lot lights and hopefully the lights that shine on our Shield be upgraded as well! New LED lights will last for years and years, provide us with prettier and safer lighting, and will help reduce our electrical expense and usage. Thank you to the 25 families who graciously donated to this campaign. Thank you very much to our leading donor without whom we couldn't dream of completing this project. And thank you to our electricians who have also generously reduced their price and are donating to the project!

The church now has a text list to keep in touch with the parish! This will be used in case service times need to be cancelled for inclement weather, and to keep you up to date on any important happenings at church. We promise that we will not send too many messages--only the really important ones! To join, please text the message @1hartford to 81010. (Standard text messaging rates apply.)

Need volunteers to rake/blow leaves from the rectory. If you can help, please email John Colaianni – john.colaianni Thank you.
