Welcome to

Saint Edmund Campion Parish of East Hartford, Connecticut

the merged parishes of Blessed Sacrament, Our Lady of Peace and Saint Christopher


Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament

Saint Christopher Rectory Window
Holy Thursday ~ April 9 ~ 8:00 am - 10:00 pm
On Holy Thursday, we will have the Blessed Sacrament exposed for adoration in the window of the Saint Christopher rectory facing the church. Holy Thursday celebrates the institution of the Holy Eucharist by Our Lord at the Last Supper. Traditionally, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is done on that day. You will have the opportunity to do this from your car even as we continue our walk through this time of confinement. The friends of Jesus kept their distance from him after his arrest in the Garden of Gethsemane. May we not keep our distance from him even as we keep our distance from one another because of the coronavirus. He is with us always; nothing can separate us from his love (not even a virus).
