Welcome to Our Lady Queen of the Apostles Parish

Please check our Facebook page, St Mary's Church St Jude's Church Derby, around 4:15 p.m. daily for live presentations by Fr. Tiano. Perhaps it will be Mass, some Bible Reflection, Stations of the Cross. Especially during Holy Week, as we follow Christ and bear the Cross of not being able to gather for Holy Week Liturgies, and as we long to receive the Sacraments, we can take advantage of the spiritual nourishment being offered. If you can't join us live, watch the videos that remain online afterward. God bless you, stay safe and healthy, and continue to pray for one another.

IN LIGHT OF WHAT THE CDC HAS ISSUED ON MARCH 15TH REGARDING THE CANCELLATION OR POSTPONEMENT OF LARGE EVENTS AND GATHERINGS OF MORE THAN 50 PEOPLE, AND GIVEN THE MARCH 16TH MANDATE OF GOVERNOR NED LAMONT REQUIRING THE CLOSURE OF ALL RESTAURANTS, BARS, GYMS AND MOVIE THEATERS, THE ARCHDIOCESE OF HARTFORD HAS CANCELLED ALL WEEKEND AND WEEKDAY MASSES, EFFECTIVE TUESDAY, MARCH 17, 2020, IN THE CHURCHES OF THE ARCHDIOCESE THROUGH APRIL 30, 2020. ST MARY CHURCH WILL BE OPEN FOR PERSONAL PRAYER 7 DAYS A WEEK FROM 8 A.M. TO 4 P.M.

FOLLOWING THE MANDATE OF GOVERNOR LAMONT CLOSING ALL CONNECTICUT SCHOOLS THROUGH AT LEAST MARCH 31ST, ALL ARCHDIOCESAN HIGH SCHOOLS AND PAROCHIAL SCHOOLS WILL ALSO BE CLOSED THROUGH MARCH 31ST, AS WILL RELIGIOUS EDUCATION PROGRAMS.

PALMS ANNOUNCEMENT

First and foremost the health and safety of our parishioners is the most important factor in our decision. Palms will be distributed from Noon until 1:00 p.m. on Palm Sunday in the St. Jude Parking Lot. Those who would like palms should enter the property from Sentinel Hill. They should pop their trunk when they come onto the property; in front of the church a volunteer will place the palms in their trunks. If you cannot open your trunk from the inside of your car, lower your rear passenger side window for the palms to be placed.  We are asking that in no circumstances does anybody get out of their cars. This is for the safety of our volunteers and your own safety. You should exit through the Pleasant View Rd. exit. Please be assured that we are saving palms in our walk in refrigerator for those who would like to wait to get the palms after this crisis.

We know how important Palm Sunday is to our parishioners, but I want to remind everyone that our health and our community’s health are much more important.

Thank you, and please stay safe during this crisis.
