The 70th Anniversary Mass was a wonderful event. It was so nice to see our presbyterate gathered with so many of our men and women religious, Knights and Dames of Malta, deacons, and so many of the faithful from around the diocese.

The holy cards will be available beginning this week from the following areas of the diocese:

  • Fairfield/Bridgeport (at the Catholic Center)
  • Greenwich (from Janet Wrabel and Christine Green)
  • Stamford/Norwalk/Darien (from Loren Procaccini)
  • Monroe/Trumbull/Shelton (from Todd Kellogg)
  • Danbury (from Maria Merino-Schweitzer)

I know I am forgetting areas, but we will send out a list to all the formation leaders to make sure you get connected with the person who picks up your cards tomorrow.

Saint Joseph Children’s Rosary Ministry would like to invite everyone to join them in praying the rosary every Friday from 4:00 to 5:00pm. See this flyer for more information.

This Saturday, Fairfield and Easton parish leadership will be meeting with the Bishop. To register, please visit this page or log in to LEAD and see the event on your dashboard (if you are in these parishes).

Enrollment in Adult Confirmation continues. See this page for more information in English and this page for Spanish.


Pope Francis at the end of his general audience on Wednesday morning (October 18, 2023) announced another day of prayer and fasting for an end to the Israel-Hamas war.

“I have decided to call for a day of fasting and prayer on Friday, Oct. 27,” the pope said.

It will be “a day of penance to which I invite sisters and brothers of the various Christian denominations, those belonging to other religions, and all those who have at heart the cause of peace in the world, to join in as they see fit,” the Holy Father continued.

The faithful of the Diocese of Bridgeport are invited to join in the recitation of the Rosary at 7 pm on Friday, October 27th at 7 pm. This event will take place via Zoom.
