CRS to host “Come and See” event for Diocese of Bridgeport

BRIDGEPORT—On Monday, May 3,  7:30-8:30 pm, Catholic Relief Services will be hosting a Come & See event, specifically for the Diocese of Bridgeport. “We are eager to move this opportunity forward as Bishop Frank J. Caggiano is very interested in establishing one or more chapters in the Diocese of Bridgeport,” said Nora Ferreira Aufiero, community engagement manager, Catholic Relief Services, Northeast Mid-Atlantic Region.

The event is open to anyone in the diocese who would be interested in taking a deeper dive into their commitment to global social justice and policy change to help our brothers and sisters around the world.

Catholic Relief Service (CRS) chapters are local communities of people who support CRS’ mission through measurable steps of advocacy and fundraising. The formation of the chapters is part of a strategy that CRS has crafted in response to the overwhelming set of problems we see around the world.
