Dear members of the Haitian Catholic Community of the Diocese of Bridgeport,

I am Fr. Guy Dormevil. On January 1st, 2022, his Excellency Bishop Frank J. Caggiano nominated me as the Episcopal vicar for the Haitian Catholic Community, a responsibility that I have accepted with great humility and pride. This nomination is a privilege to work hand-in-hand with my Haitian brothers Priests and Deacons, including my Haitian brothers and sisters in the Diocese of Bridgeport, in a higher capacity in the Catholic Church. It gives me the opportunity to work for a more unified Haitian Pastoral and Apostolate, fully integrated in all Pastoral Activities of the Diocese.

I count on the counsel of every group, or member of the community to better serve the needs of the Haitian Community, and the Catholic Church. I welcome any concerns you would like to address with me. I will diligently work for Unity in the Haitian Community as it is stated in our coats of arm “L’ Union fait la Force”, and it is the call of God to every Christian “May they all be one.”

Please don’t hesitate to contact me for an appointment, by calling the office of St. Joseph and St. Ladislaus Parish in Norwalk, or the office of Notre Dame du Perpétuel Secours Quasi Parish in Stamford.

I am looking forward to working with you in building a stronger Haitian Catholic Community in the Bridgeport Diocese.

About our Episcopal Vicar, Fr. Guy Dormevil

As a layman, I was one of the leaders who started the Norwalk Community. I was married for 29 years. I have two children and two grandchildren. Becoming a priest after the death of my wife, my first assignment as parochial vicar is at St. Joseph Church, Norwalk, the same Parish where this Haitian Community calls its Home Parish; the same place I got married, my children received their sacraments, my wife's funeral took place.
I give all the credit for this assignment, to the members of the Parish who always work with me with respect, appreciation and whom prayed and supported me on the roadway to become a priest. Along with becoming a parochial vicar, I am also the Moderator of the first, newly made Haitian Quasi Parish “Notre Dame du Perpétuel Secours,” in Stamford, CT.
Since an early age I was always involved in the Church as an altar server, youth group leader, prayer groups leader, liturgical leader and charismatic group leader. I served as the parish pastoral and financial member, the parish Trustee, a diocesan pastoral council member, and delegate on the 2014 diocesan synod of the Diocese of Bridgeport. In 2009 I received the St. Augustin Diocesan Medal of service.
I was shocked when the Bishop named me the Episcopal Vicar for the Haitian Catholic Community so soon. However, I was not surprised due to my involvement background and service to the Church since I was a young child in Haiti. My leadership within the Haitian community, my business background along with attending Pope St. John XXIII seminary, I feel all these helped in being named Episcopal Vicar. It is clear that Bishop Frank J. Caggiano has a clear vision and expectation of the Haitian Catholic Community, my vision is to work for a more unified Haitian Community in collaboration with the entire Haitian clergy and others clerics people who are willing to help the three Haitian communities of Bridgeport, Norwalk, Stamford to get closer by having activities that bring them together as often as possible, to foster more vocation to the priesthood, diaconate, and other religious communities.
As the Bishop spells out so many times I will work with him for a better, larger participation of the Haitian Catholic Community in the Diocesan activities. I hope to be able to work with other Haitian’s Christian Denomination leaders, in order to bring the light of the Gospel further in the Haitian community and beyond.
