Photos: Parish Events 2016




Here are the photos from our Nov. 30th Advent Food & Faith reflection evening on Mary's Journey of Faith with presenter Sr. Jo-Ann Iannotti, OP



On Sunday evening October 16 we laughed and learned with Matt Weber about how to take up the challenge of publically being Catholic and living our lives of faith. Matt is the Director of Digital Communication Strategy at Harvard University, a TV host and producer, and a very gifted storyteller who the over 350 in attendance will not forget!



Many members of the Catholic Community of Windsor Locks enjoyed a "Strawberries and Choo Choo BBQ" on Saturday, June 25, 2016.  The event was held at Fr, Farrell Hall, with Maneely's catering.  A good time was had by all, even the people who worked hard top make the event a success! 



StMary/StRobert Food Drive was held Saturday, June 4 at the Windsor Locks Town Hall and at Southwest Park Pavillion. 

The Windsor Locks Catholic Community came to the aid of the Towns food pantry when it was found that there was a Critical food shortage.  The food pantry is stocked by Donations Only.  Each week 75 families depend on the Pantry to help feed their families.

Over three hundred (300) bags of food were donated along cash donations were collected during the June 4th drive.  This helped out a great deal for the current month but the need is ongoing.  The Pantry is in need of canned Tuna/Chicken, Cereal, Peanut butter, Jelly, Oatmeal, Pasta & Sauce, Mac & Cheese, Canned Fruit, Soups, Boxed Rice/Potatoes, Granola Bars, Toilet Paper, Paper Towels, and Tissues.  These items can be dropped off daily at the Windsor Locks Food Pantry in the Town Hall.  Please remember to be sure to check the expiration dates on items being donated.  Expired food is not accepted and it is thrown away.
