On June 29, 2002 The Hartford Courant reported that All Saints Catholic Church in New Britain, Connecticut "is closing after 84 years of service to the New Britain Slovak community. For many, it represents the closing of a bridge to their ancestral home... All Saints... is one of a dozen Catholic churches in New Britain... it is an ethnic parish, originally built to serve the city's bustling immigrant community... The closing, announced in April, is part of the Archdiocese of Hartford's plan to restructure and streamline parishes in New Britain."
