Welcome To
Foundations In Faith

Ensuring the vitality of our church demands immediate and ongoing investments. In our parish ministries, we must increase our evangelization efforts to deepen participation in parish life. Forming young people committed to Christ requires the reimagining of faith formation and the expansion of youth ministry programs. Our seminary must continue to educate and form men for the priesthood, and the church must maintain our commitment to provide for the needs of our retired priests.

In our community, we must continue to show God’s love to those with intellectual and developmental disabilities; and meet the spiritual needs of the elderly living in nursing homes. Foundations in Faith will empower the Church in Fairfield County to support, strengthen and build collaborations to enrich our varied pastoral ministries.
