Prayer to Joseph,
Who is Known by Many Titles
Teach us to listen and not be afraid to trust
as you did in God's promise.
Teach us to love courageously with a heart
that is free and just.
Teach us to protect one another and all
that belongs to God.
Teach us to dream a world where all are neighbors;
a vision illuminated by God's light.
Teach us to keep the Word of God close to our hearts, and to proclaim it in word and action.
Teach us to be gentle with our power and
strong in our tenderness.
Teach us to be for all persons a living lesson
of goodness and truth - a blessing for all
generations to come.
Father Larry was recently ordained on December 8, 2021 by Bishop Cote for the Diocese of Norwich and assigned as parochial vicar at Blessed Sacrament Parish. He had been assigned to Blessed Sacrament Parish in the summer of 2019 as a seminarian, and again in the summer of 2020 as a transitional deacon. So many parishioners felt like he was coming home. Prior to entering the seminary in 2016, Fr. Larry was a respiratory therapist and manager of the Cardiopulmonary Department at the State Department of Veterans’ Affairs in Rocky Hill for 30 years. But eventually, he felt a calling to more. (His welcome video shares part of his faith story.) Fr. Larry received his Master of Divinity degree from Pope St. John XXIII in May of 2021. He is quite excited to immerse himself in parish life and ministries.
