"Sell Your Old Gold" Fundraiser
Friday, November 16th through Sunday, November 18th. Bring in (and get paid for) your broken chains, single earrings, old school rings, jewelry you never wear, old gifts, and yes, even that dental gold. Our friend Bob, the gold man, is back and will also be buying your sterling silver jewelry, flatware and hollowware as well as platinum and palladium. 60% of profits made will be donated, in your name, back to SES.
When the liturgical reforms of the second Vatican council were promulgated, the lives of many of the faithful were disrupted because they were neither informed nor prepared for the changes to come.
As we look forward to the promulgation of our own revised liturgical norms, Bishop Caggiano is committed to avoiding that same mistake. The Revised Liturgical Norms for the Diocese of Bridgeport will be promulgated on the first Sunday of Advent, December 2, 2018. Between now and then, we will embark on a comprehensive catechetical and communication strategy so that when the norms are made public, there is a more complete understanding of what we aim to do, namely, raise awareness of and commitment to a celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass that is both faithful and universal
