St. John Mission Church to celebrate 125th anniversary

Saint John Mission Church in Bozrah will mark the 125th anniversary of its dedication on June 16. Mass at 9 a.m. will be celebrated by Bishop Michael R. Cote, followed by a brunch at the Moose Club in Bozrah.

St. John Church was built in 1893 and dedicated on June 17, 1894.  It is the oldest Roman Catholic mission east of the Mississippi River. Pastoral care of St. John Mission was entrusted to St. Andrew’s Church, Colchester, in 1893 and was transferred to Sacred Heart, Norwichtown, in 1960.
