Updates: Building for the Future Campaign

Summer 2021

A Productive Collaboration

We are grateful for the assistance of parish leadership from Holy Cross Church, including Fr. Alfred Pecaric, Bob Kokorda, Bill Sekelsky, Frank Ficko, and Ed Colon, as we worked together on the plan to best meet the needs of the Center and the Parish. Monsignor Thomas Powers, Vicar General of the Diocese of Bridgeport, coordinated our collaboration that also included four Board members from Saint Catherine Center. Read a letter to members of the Holy Cross Parish.

We are currently working with Antinozzi and Associates, the architects for the project, to draw up final plans to be presented to the Town of Fairfield for approval from the appropriate Boards and officials. As construction begins, we will provide weekly updates on this page.

Check back regularly for updates!

“Saint Catherine Center for Special Needs is at the very heart of the mission of the Church, for if there was one thing that characterized Our Lord’s Ministry, it was that He always stood by those who were vulnerable. I have watched the Center grow and thrive as they companion children and young adults with disabilities, teaching, challenging, and nurturing them to become as independent as possible. It is both challenging and rewarding, and I look forward to this new phase of growth.”

Most Reverend Frank J. Caggiano, Bishop of Bridgeport
