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
Bishop of Bridgeport
