Coffee Hour

Join us for Coffee Hour after the 9AM and 10:30AM Sunday Masses! This is a great way to connect with friends or meet new ones within our parish family while enjoying coffee and a sweet treat. Simply walk back to the Community Room after Mass.

Thank you for considering a nominal donation to help defray the cost of the coffee and treats.

If you want to learn more about how you can help volunteer to organize the Coffee Hours, email Tom Dolan or call him at 203-895-9513.

Funeral Receptions

This ministry was started so that our parish family could help offer support to families who have suffered the loss of a loved one. After a Funeral Mass, if the family of the deceased would like to host a reception in the Faith Center Community Room of the Church, we offer this space and a team of volunteers to help set up, serve, and clean up the reception.

If you are interested in being a part of the volunteer team, email Anne Foley or call her at 203-521-0499.
