Loaves & Fishes: How to make your Lenten offering

BRIDGEPORT—These are unsettling times. Life has changed in an instant and in order to protect ourselves and those around us we have had to give up things that are important to our weekly lives. This includes attending Mass. During the Lenten season, our churches are usually packed with regular attendees who are accustomed to making their Lenten offerings to Loaves and Fishes. Many have been inquiring how they can do that with Masses being canceled due to the threat of COVID-19.

There are two ways you can make your annual Lenten offering through Loaves and Fishes:

  1. MAIL A CHECK made payable to Catholic Charities of Fairfield County  ATT: Loaves and Fishes 238 Jewett Avenue Bridgeport, CT 06606. Please trust that even though the Catholic Center is closed, our mail is being attended to and checks are being processed on a regular basis.
  2. MAKE AN ONLINE DONATION here. Loaves and Fishes offerings have been processed online for several years. Simply choose Loaves and Fishes from the drop-down menu.
