Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish


Educating our children in our Catholic faith is one of the most important programs in our parish.

Our parish CCD programs involve children, teens and their families in interesting and fulfilling meetings that lead to the Sacraments of First Holy Communion and Confirmation and a more active participation in our churches.

Our teachers are developing plans to continue their classes in the fall.

Information on Confirmation preparation will be finalized over the summer.

Knights of Columbus

The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic Fraternal organization consisting of men who believe in the four core principles of our organization - Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism.

We hosted our annual parish picnic held May 28th at the pavilion next to Washington Elementary School. A good time was had by all!

Congratulations to our scholarship winners - Alexis Aita and Saoirse Crossley! They both received $1,000 to help with college expenses.

The Knights meet every month in the parish hall. If you are interested in joining our organization or have any questions concerning the organization, please contact our Grand Knight Bob Falconer at 860-350-6681.

Liturgy Committee

The OPPH Parish takes an active interest in the growth and renewal of its members by providing uplifting information. The Liturgy Committee does more than prepare and evaluate the liturgies for OLPH and St. Patrick. It functions as a sounding board for the parishioners and sets goals for the progress of the liturgical, sacramental and devotional life of the parish.


Music enriches all parts of our lives and is especially important in the life of the Church.

Our choir, soloists and 80 year old, recently restored organ raise their voices to give glory to God.
Traditional and contemporary Church music encourages our parishioners to join in the worship and celebration of Mass.

Parish Council

The Parish Council, as part of the Archdiocese of Hartford, is an advisory and practical assistance group for Father Joseph.

Its purpose is to address the life and growth of the Body of Christ in both churches and includes offering spiritual information, planning and initiating programs and providing leadership for their implementation.

Women's Guilds

The Women's Guilds in Our Lady and St. Patrick provide support for social gatherings and raise funds for community and church needs.

For more information, please contact Jean Suddaby at 860-868-2522.
