Pastor's Message

  • Dear Friends,

    In the coming weeks you will be seeing some changes as you enter Church for Weekend Masses. It is time for us to move from our pandemic plan to a plan which will give us direction to be a welcoming Parish. I will be meeting with our volunteers who serve us at mass, on Monday March 20th at 7pm, in the Church.

    A note of thanks to our volunteers who have served our parish during the pandemic time. A note of thanks to our parishioners for keeping us safe during the pandemic.

Handicapped Parking

The four spaces directly in front of the Church on Second Hill Lane are handicapped parking spaces. These spaces are for our parishioners who have a handicap parking sticker.

Wheelchair Seating

We invite you to be seated in the front area of the church. You and your family can be seated. Communion will be brought to you at the beginning of Communion time

We have developed a policy that safeguards our parishioners and will allow time for our parish contractors to clear the property during storms. Weekdays: When the schools are closed or delayed or the Town or State has advised against travel, Daily Mass will be cancelled for that day. The parish will notify channel 8, channel 3 and the radio stations of the cancellation.

Weekends: When severe weather occurs during weekend Mass times, please check the local TV and Radio stations and our parish website for cancellations. It becomes very difficult to keep the sidewalks, driveways, and parking area clear if it snows during Mass time. Your safety is important to us! Any Mass intention effected by the cancellation will be said during the next week.

I am immensely grateful for your support last year to the Diocese of Bridgeport’s 2022 Bishop’s Appeal.  As we moved forward from the pandemic, the need for services continued to be impacted, especially nutrition and counseling programs. 

 Because of your generosity, we were able to serve thousands of Fairfield County individuals and families through our ministries and services, introduce new programs to experience, and learn more about the beauty of our Catholic faith and to mentor young adults in business and faith.

Our goal for the 2023 Annual Bishop’s Appeal is $67,800.00. Thank you for your support and generosity.
