Father Burns Update

We are sorry to announce that Father Burns has now moved into The Residence at South Windsor Farms and will no longer be living at Saint James Rectory.  When Father broke his arm several months ago, he became unable to handle stairs and moved into his niece’s home.  In the last few weeks it became apparent that he needs more support than either his niece and her husband or we here at Saint James can provide. With advice from his doctors, he has made the decision to move to an assisted living facility.  We are very impressed with the quality of the residence and the way in which he is being treated.  We encourage you to visit him and/or to send cards – he would be delighted to hear from you! He is in room 224 at The Residence at South Windsor Farms, 200 Deming Street, South Windsor, CT 06074.

In his 8 years at Saint James Church, Father Burns has contributed immeasurably to the life of our parish. We will certainly miss him greatly.  If his health permits, we may be able to bring him here from time to time – just to visit, to participate in celebrations, and especially to hear confessions – as he has proven a very dedicated and popular confessor.
