Dear Faith Formation Parents,

In light of the recent developments of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and closure of Trumbull Public Schools, we are canceling all Faith Formation Classes at the church effective immediately. We will transfer to a home based Faith Formation program for the remainder of the year.

The home study program will include reading one chapter each day of the Gospel of Luke, that is, the "Gospel of Mercy" which begins with the Joyful Mysteries of our Lord. The Gospel begins with the Annunciation which is celebrated March 25th every year. Please take time to discuss each chapter for a short while after reading it together.  Also, please pray one Family Rosary on the day your child's class would have normally taken place. This will provide a meaningful spiritual exercise that will benefit the entire family.

We will check in with all families periodically to see how the program is progressing. You are in all in our thoughts and prayers! Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Thank you and God Bless!

Eileen Wilkins

Dear Confirmation Parents,

Father Walsh spoke with the Faith Formation Director for our Diocese earlier today and she informed him that the Bishop has decided to suspend Confirmation until after Easter. Moreover, the Bishop has not decided to give the Pastors the faculties to Confirm at this time. That decision will be made sometime after Easter.

Consequently, the Family Faith Night scheduled for this Sunday, March 15th is postponed until we have a new date for Confirmation. As we receive updates from the Office of the Bishop, we will share them with you.

If you have any questions in the meantime, please feel free to contact us in the Faith Formation Office or you may contact Fr. Walsh directly. His cell is 203-273-0438.

Thank you for your patience and your understanding.

Eileen Wilkins
