Messages From Fr. Anthony Smith


April 21, 2020

I am Fr Anthony Smith, the pastor of St John the Evangelist Church, and I have been asked to be the temporary administrator of St Mary Magdalen Church in the wake of Fr Hickey’s passing. I am humbled to be asked to assist St Mary Magdalen in these very challenging times.  I look forward to meeting with you in the near future.

We are in the midst of very uncertain times. This uncertainty caused us to postpone our Confirmation Mass and I am sure you have been wondering when we can reschedule. Unfortunately this pandemic does not allow us to make definitive dates for previously scheduled events including our Confirmation.  I pray that we are on the back end of this crisis and we can see the end in sight soon.  I will let you know when we can expect to schedule Confirmation as soon as we get directives from the Archdiocese.

I have been in contact with Sherrie Gemmell to get a report on your status of preparation.  She assures me that most of the preparation had been completed prior to this current shutdown.  When we get a firm date and allowed to gather again we will schedule a time to meet and take care of any questions and any unfinished preparation prior to the Confirmation.

Until then please do not hesitate to contact me and our staff at this email or by calling the office (860) 274-1955.  Please be assured of my prayers as we persevere through this challenging time.

Sincerely in Christ,

Fr Anthony J. Smith
