Belated introduction of, and welcome to, Alden Bronson

In the middle of September, Aldon Bronson arrived at Resurrection and Saint Paul Parishes. Alden is a 2020 graduate of Boston University where his major was performance as a cellist. He comes Bradford, Mass and Sacred Hearts Parish. He is spending a ‘propaedeutic’ year with us in preparation for admission to Saint John Seminary in the fall of 2021. During this ‘propaedeutic’ year, Alden has been living with Father Tom and Father Matt in Resurrection Rectory as he observes priestly life and gets acquainted with our parishes.
The ‘propaedeutic’ year is a period of spiritual and human formation in preparation for priestly formation and theological studies in the fall. It is similar to novitiate in religious life. Alden’s day is devoted to prayer, spiritual reading, spiritual and human formation. He meets regularly with Father Tom and members of the Vocation Team to reflect on his experience and discuss priestly life and spiritual matters.
Alden has been a gift to our rectory life, as he is a joyful and faithful presence among us. He has a great sense of humor and he is enormously talented. You have probably seen him doing technical work such as audio and live streaming. He generously and capably learned the technology and has been very helpful since Adam Trudel’s departure in October.
It’s a little bit late but nonetheless heartfelt to welcome Alden Bronson to our collaborative. Please include Alden in your prayers as he responds to the Lord’s call during this ‘propaedeutic’ year.  
Fr. Gerald Leibenguth OSB
We are saddened to learn of the death of Fr. Gerald, OSB of Glastonbury Abbey. Fr. Gerald first came to Glastonbury in 1963 as a student, made his profession in 1965 and was ordained in 1972. For decades, he has been a regular parish celebrant at Mass at St. Paul and, on occasion at Resurrection. Fr. Gerald is a beloved person in our faith community. His kind and gentle manner, his wit and faith-filled homilies were his gift to us. Please pray for Fr. Gerald and thank God for his faithful priestly ministry.

Our next overnight adoration will be next weekend beginning Friday, January 15th after the 7pm Daily Mass at Resurrection and continue through the night until benediction at 8:50am, followed by Mass at 9am.
