Bishop Caggiano to be honored at Ignatian Center Dinner

FAIRFIELD—The Murphy Center for Ignatian Spirituality Dinner & Award Ceremony Honoring Bishop Frank J. Caggiano will be held on April 12, 2019, in the Oak Room in the Barone Campus Center of Fairfield University. A reception is set for 6 pm with dinner to follow at 7 pm.

“Fairfield University’s Murphy Center for Ignatian Spirituality gratefully recognizes Bishop Frank Caggiano’s enthusiastic support of the Center from its very inception. Over the past years, it has been our privilege to collaborate with Bishop Caggiano in the mission entrusted to him,” said Father Gerry Blaszczak, S.J., director of the Murphy Center for Ignatian Spirituality of Fairfield University.

“We honor Bishop Caggiano for his unflagging commitment to the growth in Christ of the clergy, religious and laity of Diocese of Bridgeport, whom he has served with outstanding wisdom, courage, fidelity and compassion,” said Father Blaszczak.

Rev. Robert Kinnally, chancellor of the diocese and pastor St. Aloysius Parish, New Canaan and Deacon Patrick Toole, episcopal delegate for administration, Diocese of Bridgeport, are serving as co-chairs of the event.

The Murphy Center for Ignatian Spirituality offers spiritual direction in the Ignatian tradition to guide individuals and groups in their journey toward this encounter, as St. Ignatius did, by “finding God in all things.” As part of this outreach, we also train spiritual directors who can assist in the discernment of God’s direction in their lives.

The Center’s goals are to establish a lasting infrastructure to serve as a repository of the Jesuit values foundational to the culture of Fairfield University. The Center also promotes vibrant expressions of Ignatian spirituality at individual and group levels, both on campus and in parish settings in the Diocese of Bridgeport.
