Updated Guidelines for Mass Attendance

The Church is now open to full capacity

Bishop Caggiano invites all Catholics in the Diocese to Come Home to Mass, and in accordance with the State of Connecticut COVID guidelines, he has lifted the restrictions on numbers of parishioners in Church, and the registration requirement for Mass.  As a result of these changes in protocol, the Bishop has lifted the special dispensation regarding Mass attendance that was in effect during the Pandemic.  This means that all Catholics who are able to do so, should again be attending mass in person each week. Those who are prevented from attending Mass in person due to physical or health concerns, or those who are in quarantine, should not attend Mass in person.

We assure you that safety remains a high priority.  We will continue to santize the church, while guidelines for receiving Holy Communion remain in place.  There will be several pews reserved for anyone who wishes to remain socially distanced due to health concerns.


Bishop Frank J. Caggiano has issued guidance for those
who seek letters of exemption from the Covid-19 vaccine.

A Bridge Home


A Letter from Bishop Frank J. Caggiano 

My Dear Friends in Christ,

“A Bridge Home” is the theme of the 2022 Bishop’s Appeal, formerly called the Annual Catholic Appeal, and it highlights hope, renewal and evangelization in our diocese. The Appeal invests in services that continue to engage those in their faith and build a strong bridge to so many who are struggling. Now it is more important than ever to reunite our Church, affirm our faithful and welcome others back.

I am grateful for your support this past year as we continue to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic and we once again gather within our parishes, homes and communities. This is possible because of your faith and generosity.

The Diocese of Bridgeport has a long tradition of providing programs that serve those in need and prepare for the future of our Catholic faith. This year’s Appeal goal is $8.1 million and remains unchanged from last year.

I personally invite you to join with me in making a gift and building “A Bridge Home,” one living stone at a time. We have been through much together as a family in faith, and we have much to look forward to because we are a people of hope.

I pray for God’s blessings on you and your family.

Faithfully in Christ,

Most Reverend Frank J. Caggiano

Our Saint Lawrence Parish Goal is $162,000. 

We ask that each of our families help us reach our goal
by supporting the 2022 Bishop's Appeal
as generously as your means allow.

As always we appreciate your continued generosity.
