Dear Parishioners,

In the midst of bad news and challenging times, the Church is coming with the Good News of the Gospel, the news of hope and salvation. We know we are not alone, we know we are not abandoned. Our peace comes from the trust in our merciful God.

After receiving new guidelines from the diocese, we offer you some helpful updates:

All Liturgical services with the public have been suspended until April 30th. We continue to offer spiritual support in different ways.

Confessions: now we will hear confessions following the regular Saturday confession schedule from 3pm to 4pm or by appointment. We are not allowed to use the confessional, instead all confessions will take place in the crying room the church. 

We will stream online our Sunday Mass from Saint Margaret Mary Church. The Mass will be available on Facebook, our parish website  starting at 4pm on Saturday.

Adoration: instead of the public Sunday Masses we will expose the Blessed Sacrament in the church. This Sunday the Adoration will be between 9am and 12 noon. Those who desire to pay a visit to Jesus are asked to follow the social distancing rules by staying at least six feet away from one another. 

The church remains open 8am-7pm for private prayer.

Confessions for Holy Week: Good Friday 4:30-6PM. Holy Saturday 11AM- 12PM.

Holy Week: We will livestream the liturgical services on Holy Week. Holy Thursday - 7pm, Good Friday - 3pm and Stations of the Cross at 7pm, Easter Vigil Saturday April 11 - 7pm, Easter Sunday Mass - 10am.

In the meanwhile, I will keep all of you in my prayers. May God bless you and protect you!

Fr. Ciprian Bejan, Pastor

We, the Catholic faithful of Fairfield County, stand together with Christ at this transformational moment in our history, when we are called upon to invest in the true treasure of the Church - the people who form the Body of Christ - in order to lead them, young and old, rich and poor, forward in faith to ensure a strong, vibrant Church for our children and their children.

"Those who have preceded us have left us with the gift of a vibrant Church.
The obligation is ours to maintain and enhance this inheritance..." 
...Most Rev. Frank Caggiano, Bishop of Bridgeport
