Sebastiano DeCicco, the father of Carmela Williams, died Saturday morning. May the choir of angels come to greet him. May they speed him to Paradise. May the Lord enfold him in his mercy; may he find eternal life. Please continue to pray for Carmela and her family.

If you would like to send a note to Carmela, please send them to the office. Carmela Williams 238 Jewett Ave., Bridgeport, CT 06606.

Carmela will be back in the office next week. The office is closed today for observance of MLK.


The Rite of Election is coming up on February 18, 2024. Everything you need to know is here.

Adult Confirmation materials, hybrid course, and other information is here.

If you would like Lenten posters, please send an email with the requested number of English or Spanish posters. These will need to be picked up at the Catholic Center. Given the short turnaround time, there will only be one printing.

This week, all those who did not attend the December gathering will be receiving a copy of the Directory for Catechesis and an invitation to our gathering in March. Keep an eye out.

If you did not read the message about Confirmation, the bishop’s office, and being the first (and last) line of defense for parents, please go back and read it.
