The Parish of the Incarnation is a Catholic community located in the southwest corner of the town of Wethersfield roughly encompassing the area south of Wells Road and west of the Silas Deane Highway. It was established in 1963 by Archbishop Henry J. O'Brien with Father John J. Crawford as the founding pastor. Our beautiful church on Prospect Street was dedicated on January 23, 1966. We invite you to visit this House of God in our midst and join us as a part of our worshipping community.
While a church is far more than a building, we the people of Incarnation parish are justifiably proud of our church building. It was built with the liturgical changes of the Second Vatican Council in mind. With a full pipe organ, excellent acoustics, and a beautiful interior it offers a perfect setting for the liturgy.
Our church is fully air conditioned and is accessible to the disabled. Several pews throughout the church are designed to accommodate worshippers with disabilities. There is ample parking. The rear portion of our church building contains a fully equipped parish hall which is the center of our parish social life.
Our Blessed Sacrament Chapel is open daily for visits and personal prayer. On weekends the chapel offers a comfortable place for families with young children as they attend Mass together.
On June 5, 1993, our parish honored our founding pastor by dedicating the church hall in his honor and naming it Father Crawford Hall. This event provided one of many lasting tributes to a noble man and a holy priest of the Lord. Father Crawford passed away on September 13, 1993. May he be numbered among the saints of heaven.
