Sunday, May 6,  Sacred Heart Church of Norwichtown was honored to have Bishop Michael R. Cote celebrate Holy Mass along with  Vicar General Monsignor Leszek Janik, and assisted by Deacon Jorge Escalona. 

After Mass, a procession including Paris Porter carrying a crown of roses for our Blessed Mother, the Rosary Altar Society of Sacred Heart Church and St. John Mission, the Knights of Columbus White Cross Council #13 along with their Color Guards, and parishioners made their way to the newly arranged Memorial Garden to be blessed by Bishop Cote.  During the crowning of Mary, Paulette Devino, a Rosary Altar Society member, played "Ave Maria" on her flute. 

Following the blessing, Bishop Cote, Monsignor. Janik and Deacon Escalona joined the Rosary Altar Society members for brunch prepared by the Knights of Columbus.
