COVID-19: UPDATED POLICIES

As of Thursday, August 12, 2021, wearing a mask is required for all indoor functions at Saint Maurice Church, in compliance with the latest pandemic safety mandate from the City of Stamford and guidance from Bishop Caggiano. This requirement will remain in place until the local mandate is lifted.

The Bishop writes:

"I realize that there will be many mixed reactions to any return use of masks at Mass. However, from the start of the pandemic, we have committed ourselves to protect human life that is most vulnerable to the effects of the coronavirus. We have also cooperated with state and local authorities to protect the common good. It is my hope and fervent prayer that these measures, where they are being mandated, will be short-lived as the effects of the Delta variant begin to recede."

As before, our COVID-19 policy may be subject to change as the situation develops. Any updates will come from the City of Stamford, and we will publish any changes here as well.

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
