The current policy in the Archdiocese of Hartford states that all pastors, priests and administrators use ONLY AOHCT.ORG email address. Starting with the March 2017 newsletter, we will be using AOHCT.ORG emails. This may change where some parish staff receive the newsletter. If you have any questions, please email Jennifer.McClintock@aohct.org or call 860-242-5573.
