Bishop’s Announcement Regarding COVID-19

This is the announcement from Bishop Frank Caggiano for all the Catholic faithful in the Bridgeport Diocese:

Anyone exhibiting flu-like or cold symptoms, the elderly and those with underlying physical conditions that would make them more susceptible to the Coronavirus are not obliged to attend Sunday Mass. Beginning this Third Sunday of Lent (March 14-15) through the Fifth Sunday of Lent (March 28-29), he is temporarily dispensing all Catholics of the Diocese of Bridgeport from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass. However he is not cancelling the weekend Masses at this point. If we get any further directives from the bishop it will be made know to you as soon as we get them.
