2021 Annual Catholic Appeal

Below find a letter from Bishop Caggiano on this year's Annual Catholic Appeal, along with links to resources provided by the Diocese of Bridgeport.

My dear friends in Christ,
“Arise” is the theme of the 2021 Annual Catholic Appeal and is a statement of hope for renewal and recovery this year. The story of Lazarus continues to come to mind in my reflections. The Lord’s words to Lazarus are, “untie him and let him go free,” and that is precisely the invitation from the Lord to each of us — to arise from the darkness of this pandemic and to seek new life in Him.
As I look upon the past year, during a time of unexpected and historic crisis, I am deeply grateful for your generous response to the Appeal, which brought the mercy of Christ to so many.
This year’s goal is $8.1 million, 10% less than last year due to the success of the We Stand With Christ Capital Campaign, and will allow the Diocese to maintain the immediate works of charity, formation in faith, education and catechesis, while the Capital Campaign sustains the long-term mission of the Diocese. Please join with me in making a gift to “Arise.”
May the Lord bless you and your family.
Faithfully in Christ,
Most Reverend Frank J. Caggiano
Bishop of Bridgeport

COVID-19: UPDATED POLICIES

As of May 19, 2021, most COVID-19 restrictions have been removed in alignment with the new CDC guidelines and revised state mandates. Notably:

  • All those who are not fully vaccinated must continue to wear masks when attending Mass or any other liturgical or social function held on parish property.

Additionally:

  • All pews in three quadrants of the church will be available for seating. One quadrant will temporarily continue to be reserved for socially-distanced seating.
  • The congregation will be able to join in singing. Hymnals will be available in the pews.
  • Hand sanitizer will still be provided at each entrance to the church. All entrances and exits will be accessible.

As before, these guidelines may be subject to change as the situation develops. Visit www.diobpt.org and click the Coronavirus banner at the top to see the latest information and updates for the Diocese of Bridgeport.
