About our Episcopal Vicar, Fr. Cyrus Bartolome
My name is Father Cyrus Bartolome, and I am the pastor of the Church of the Assumption in Westport, CT and currently the Vicar for the Filipino Apostolate in the Diocese of Bridgeport.
I grew up in Bay, Laguna Philippines and immigrated in the United States in 1993. I settled in Fairfield County and began my seminary studies for the diocese. I studied at St. John Fisher Seminary, graduated at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield CT. I then transferred at Mount St Mary Seminary and later on at St Joseph Seminary to finished my major seminary studies. I was ordained for the Diocese of Bridgeport on May 17, 2007.
I was appointed as the first vicar for the Filipino by the Most Rev. Frank J. Caggiano. My vision as the vicar is to encourage the community to celebrate the uniqueness of the Filipino people by the way we live our Catholic Christian faith, to share our cherish culture, to build a bridge of unity in the different groups in the community and be an advocate for those who are in need the poor and marginalized back in the Philippines.
