Message From Father Santiago


Dear Parishioners

In light of continued uncertainty regarding the extent and duration of the coronavirus in the State of Connecticut and throughout our Archdiocese of Hartford, our St Elizabeth of the Trinity public Masses and Liturgies in all parish churches: St Barnabas, St Frances Cabrini, and St Therese are cancelled until April 30th. 

This includes the liturgies of Holy Week and Easter and all parish activities.



All planned activities whether large or small have to be postponed to a later date. Your cooperation as we go through this pandemic is greatly appreciated. If you wish, contribution envelopes can be mailed to 44 Washington Ave, North Haven, CT 06473 or dropped off through the front door slot of the Rectory/office
building adjacent to St. Barnabas Church.

Please be assured that my daily prayers are being said for all and be reassured that all Mass intentions are being said at private Masses by myself and Father Napolitano.
Thank you for your generosity and continued support.

Thank you 

Rev. Michael Santiago

St. Therese Nursery School will be closed from Friday, March 13, 2020 through Tuesday, March 31, 2020 due to the coronavirus.  

As per the Archdiocese of Hartford initiatives, any school located in a town where a school district closes, we will remain closed.  I realize that this is of a great disruption to our lives and world.  That being said, our health is of the utmost importance and these measures are being put in place to protect our community.  We are here to support you in any way we can and  we will continue to contact you in this fluid situation.

As a school I have initiated an action plan approved by our Pastor, Father Michael Santiago in the event that this occurred.  Our staff will be preparing packets of activities to support the continued growth of the spiritual, social, emotional, and cognitive growth of our students during this break.  These packets will be available for pick up on Monday, March 16th and Tuesday, March 17th from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the nursery school.  I will be here for the pick up the packets and any nap items.  We are prayerful that with the support of these materials and thoughts from the teachers, your child will have a continued connection to school during this time.  Any activities during this break will be cancelled for the time being and notification of a rescheduling will be sent via email and sign up genius.

 In addition, you will be receiving emails throughout the break with updates on any change in our school calendar as a result of this unplanned break.  Our building will have a deep clean with all floors, carpets, surfaces, and materials sanitized.  Our sick child policy will remain in place and students may only return to school if they are fever free for twenty four hours without medication.  

 I am prayerful that this break will help deter the spread of the virus and allow us to resume to our normal lives as soon as possible.  As always, I will be available via email at all times if you have any questions.  Thank you for your understanding and may God watch over you and your families during this time.

In God's Peace,

Michele Adinolfi, Director, St. Therese Nursery School.
