Saint Patrick Roman Catholic Church

The Sacrament of Marriage:

The Sacrament of Baptism:

In the Catholic Church, we are baptized as a welcome into our Catholic faith and to be freed from original sin. Baptism is the first of the three Sacraments of Initiation, along with First Holy Communion and Confirmation. It is the foundation of our sacramental life.

Please contact the parish office at 860-536-1800 or by email to schedule your child’s baptism.

Arrangements to be married are made by filling out the Wedding Application Form and must be made at least one year prior to the wedding date. Contact the parish office to obtain the application.

Weddings are normally scheduled on Saturdays, limited availability, between the hours of 10:00 am and 2:00 pm. We cannot accommodate weddings after 2:00 pm on Saturdays or anytime on Sundays.

Who may marry?

Parishioners who are formally registered at St. Patrick's may be married.

Roman Catholics who live within the boundaries of St. Patrick’s but who have no formal relationship with the parish should contact the parish office about registering in anticipation of celebrating a wedding in the future.

Catholics who live outside the parish and/or have no formal ties to this parish may be married here with the permission of their own pastor.

In all situations, either the bride or groom must be a baptized Catholic.

All individuals, Catholic and Non-Catholic alike, who have been previously married in either a civil or religious ceremony must obtain a declaration of nullity from a Roman Catholic Tribunal before he/she can be married in the Roman Catholic Church. A priest will assist you in this regard.
