SS. Cyril and Methodius Parish (Polish: Parafia św. Cyryla i Metodego w Hartford) - one of the Polish-American Roman Catholic parishes in New England in the Archdiocese of Hartford. Founded on April 6, 1902, it is designated for Polish immigrants in Hartford, Connecticut, United States.

History[edit]

In January 1901, the recently ordained Fr. Stanislaus Lozowski was assigned as curate to serve the Polish immigrants at St. Peter Parish. On April 6, 1902, Bishop of Hartford Michael Tierney established SS. Cyril and Methodius Parish for Polish immigrants, with Fr. Lozowski appointed founding pastor. The first parish Mass was celebrated in St. Peter's basement. A small wooden church was dedicated on Governor St. The cornerstone of a large brick church was blessed on July 9, 1916.
