An Important Message from the Pastor:

Dear Friends in Christ,
   I am very pleased to announce that Bishop Caggiano has appointed Father Michael K. Jones the new pastor of St Mary Parish! 
  Father Jones was ordained in 1992 by Cardinal Edward Egan. He served as Parochial Vicar at St Mary Church in Ridgefield before being appointed secretary to Cardinal Egan (while he was Bishop of Bridgeport). Following that, Father Jones completed a doctorate in Sacred Theology at the Gregorian University in Rome. On his return to the United States he was appointed the pastor of Saint Lawrence in Huntington where he has served for the past 16 years.
    Father Jones will take over as pastor on January 31, 2021.
   Please join me in welcoming Father Jones to St Mary Parish. I pray his years here will be happy and fruitful!

                                         With prayers and good wishes,
                                         Father La Pastina

    Saint Mary Church, Greenwich is pleased to be able to offer public worship again. The parish is taking precautions per the CDC and Governor Lamont’s recommendations regarding public gatherings, as well as our own precautions we feel are prudent under the circumstances. We look forward to welcoming you and your family back to Mass, but please understand there are risks involved in attending a public worship in a pandemic despite all of the precautions taken by the parish and the diocese.

From the Leadership Institute
Sunday Family Rosary

   When the pandemic began, we started hosting virtual prayers as a diocesan family. Several hundred families continued to gather throughout the summer and were disappointed when we wrapped up our Summer Rosary series. This served as a nice compliment to the many wonderful prayer opportunities our parishes were offering.
   Based on the feedback we have received, we would like to launch the Sunday Family Rosary beginning in October 2020 and continuing every Sunday at 7:30 PM. No registration is necessary for families who simply wish to join us in prayer each week at 7:30. Click here.
    If you have any questions, please email Rosary@diobpt.org.


Visit https://www.EWTN.com for daily Mass
at 8:00am with encore at 12:00 PM.

Revised Liturgical Norms

   When the liturgical reforms of the second Vatican council were promulgated, the lives of many of the faithful were disrupted because they were neither informed nor prepared for the changes to come. As we look forward to the promulgation of our own revised liturgical norms, Bishop Caggiano is committed to avoiding that same mistake.  
   The Revised Liturgical Norms for the Diocese of Bridgeport will be promulgated on the first Sunday of Advent, December 2, 2018. Between now and then, we will embark on a comprehensive catechetical and communication strategy so that when the norms are made public, there is a more complete understanding of what we aim to do, namely, raise awareness of and commitment to a celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass that is both faithful and universal.  
   In the video
here, Bishop Caggiano outlines the timeline for catechesis, makes the case for why we are revising the norms, and invites everyone to participate in this process. You may see the norms and download a copy in English and Spanish by clicking here.
