Adult Ministries

We are blessed to offer a variety of ministries. If you are interested in joining one of our ministries, please contact the person listed or drop a note in the collection basket. Our ministries include:

Sagrado Corazon de Jesus: Confradia

The Confradia have a long tradition that they bring from Puerto Rico. The ladies meet monthly and begin all meetings with a prayer service. The ladies pray for members of the community and are instrumental in helping to keep our church clean.  They also sponsor dances and other social activities that help the members of our church stay close to their culture. For more information on this group contact Elba Rodriguez.     

Eldad-Medad Men's Group

Now two men remained in the camp, one named Eldad, and the other named Medad, and the spirit rested upon them; they were among those registered, but they had not gone out to the tent, and so they prophesied in the camp. (Numbers 11:26). Eldad in the Hebrew means God loves, and Medad means object of love.  The men of our group love God and the church and seek to spread the word through their time, talent and treasure. They are active fundraiser and assist in many parish activities. For more information on this group, contact Frank Soares.

Gospel Choir

Our Gospel Choir sings at the 11:30 mass on Sundays. They are know for enlivening the worship and bringing a cultural gift to the parish.  They also travel to other churches showing them the richness of the Black Catholic experience.  When you sing well, you have prayed twice and this group knows how to pray. Amen.

Knights of Columbus

Thanks to the efforts of Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven and some of his parishioners, the Connecticut state legislature on March 29, 1882, officially chartered the Knights of Columbus as a fraternal benefit society. The Order is still true to its founding principles of charity, unity and fraternity.

The Knights was formed to render financial aid to members and their families. Mutual aid and assistance are offered to sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief and public relief works.

The history of the Order shows how the foresight of Father Michael J. McGivney, whose cause for sainthood is being investigated by the Vatican, brought about what has become the world's foremost Catholic fraternal benefit society. The Order has helped families obtain economic security and stability through its life insurance, annuity and long-term care programs, and has contributed time and energy worldwide to service in communities.

The Knights of Columbus has grown from several members in one council to more than 14,000 councils and 1.8 million members throughout the United States, Canada, the Philippines, Mexico, Poland, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Panama, the Bahamas, the Virgin Islands, Cuba, Guatemala, Guam and Saipan.

Our council is named after St. Maximillian Kolbe. To join, please contact Deacon Rick Martinez.
 

Ladies of Faith

The Ladies of Faith is an organization for women of the Parish.  The ladies are invested in worship, fundraising and social activities. Their efforts support the church and provides fellowship for the ladies. To join, please contact Pauline Foreman.

We are a proud member of CONECT (Congregations Organized for a New Connecticut)

CONECT is a non-partisan, multi-faith organization of 28 diverse congregations throughout Fairfield and New Haven Counties, who have organized as one community, to affect change in the areas of social and economic justice and policies for the common good. We train leaders in the art of public life to give power to our voices and create strong congregations and community partnerships. “The first skill we learn in community organizing is how to listen; how to engage community members in conversations. We have learned that true change, in our own lives, in our families and in our communities, emerges out of the relationships we create with one another.”


November 30, 2011 HISTORIC FOUNDING OF CONECT - Standing Room Only! On November 30, 2011 CONECT was officially founded after several years of effort and early successes as the CT Sponsoring Committee. A capacity crowd of 1,500 people filled the Cathedral of the Holy Spirit in Bridgeport. Families were lined along the balcony with young children in tow, to witness the historic event.
