Foundations in Faith is committed to supporting and transforming pastoral ministries in the Diocese of Bridgeport by fostering a spirit of accompaniment and encounter in our Church, providing grants for innovators in our parishes, and funding key pastoral ministries ranging from Evangelization, Religious and Special Education, priestly formation and support, and beyond.
Call to Lifelong Faith Formation
The Leadership Summit was held to discuss the progress of Bishop Caggiano’s invitation to Lifelong Faith Formation and how the Diocese of Bridgeport is working to meet the needs of each and every parish. Members of the Diocese who serve in many different ministries at their respective parishes were able to hear about programs and initiatives that are available to them and those they serve.
Learn More About
Under the leadership and vision of Bishop Frank J. Caggiano, Foundations in Faith succeeds the Faith in the Future Fund, a not for profit endowment fund created in 1996 as a result of a fundraising campaign with a goal to support both education and pastoral ministries of the Diocese. Faith the Future has supported these ministries and is poised to grow and continue this work as Foundations in Faith. Bishop Frank J. Caggiano has focused the mission of Foundations in Faith to support the pastoral ministries of the Diocese, while Foundations in Education will continue to support the education mission in the Diocese. In order to create a structure to focus on the pastoral ministries of the Diocese, Bishop Caggiano’s vision will move the existing funds marked for education under the umbrella of Foundations in Education. As the Faith in the Future Fund transitioned to Foundations in Faith, the purpose and mission of the organization was expanded by the designation of nine specific Funds in pastoral ministries.
