Faithful Friends

friendsWhat greater gift is there in life than faithful friends? That’s what Sr. Connie Charette was feeling as she had visitors recently. Aurelia, Ceil and Jean were young widows some thirty years ago when Sr. Connie was working at the Diocesan Family Life Office in Bridgeport, CT. The Family Life Office offered outreach to widows and widowers through a program that Sr. Connie helped to establish. Through the years these widows themselves were trained and reached out to widowed people in their parishes and towns. They never forget Sr. Connie who helped them through their own grief and then encouraged them to reach out to others. Recently the women drove from Bridgeport to Putnam to rekindle their friendship. They became acquainted with the needs of the Provincial House and showed interest in supporting our DHS mission, so in came Françoise Gauthier, Development Director, to explain the diverse ways in which folks can contribute to DHS mission. The threesome left the Provincial House with copies of the latest newsletter and contact information in hand, anxious and determined to spread the news to their friends.

To learn more about the present-day DHS Mission and how YOU can become a living part of it, you may browse all the drop down columns on this web site and/or contact our Office of Development/Advancement :  or speak personally to the director by calling 860 928-0891 ext. 148. We do hope to hear from you and to add you to our group of ‘faithful friends’.
