Our Lady Queen of Angels Parish possesses five sacred edifices, that is, the Churches of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, Saint Joseph, Saint Laurent and Saint Mary and Holy Angels. The Church of Saint Laurent, located at 121 Cap Street, Meriden, Connecticut, will be relegated to profane but not sordid use on July 30, 2018. Archbishop Leonard P. Blair issued a decree effecting the relegation according to the provisions of Church law on July 9, 2018.
During the weekend of July 14-15, the substance of the decree is to be communicated to the parishioners by means of notice in the weekend bulletin, including the display in appropriate places at all the churches so that parishioners can read it as they enter or exit the churches.
It will also be available on the website, stewardsfortomorrow.org, and posted online on the Archdiocesan Catholic Transcript magazine. Canonical recourse may be made within the peremptory time limit of ten (10) business days from the legitimate notification of the decree and in accordance with the norm of law (CIC canon 1734 §2).
