St. Maria Gorretti Opens Parish Center Today

At long last, the new St. Maria Gorretti parish center will officially open after the 10:30 mass this morning. Townspeople and parishioners may tour the new facility which houses classrooms, offices and a workspace. A small bookstore will also be on site for research and information. Having such a store will be convenient for Wolcott’s faithful who otherwise would have to travel to Southington or the small bookstore behind the Immaculate Conception Church downtown.

The new parish center is attached to the opposite end of the church hall from the church itself. Its archietcture almost identically mirrors the original church and was purposely sided with brick for the same reason. The grounds around it were reworked to accomodate parking and trees.

Archbishop Mansell will be celebrating the mass.
