The Cathedral Parish of Bridgeport is a family of St. Patrick's Church and St. Augustine Cathedral Church.

 

St. Patrick was formed in 1889 and St. Augustine was formed in 1842, coming together as The Cathedral Parish on January 15, 2012.

Note from Fr. Ringley

I have received many e-mails, letters, visits to my office, phone calls, and comments after Mass, regarding the new Mass schedule. I have appreciated the ongoing dialogue and your commitment to your individual parishes. I would ask you to afford that same commitment to The Cathedral Parish. The time has come to make a decision and move forward. We have much to do. I am satisfied and confident that the new Mass schedule will allow us to begin to implement our pastoral objectives. Those are foremost. This decision has involved many considerations about not only our present situation, but our future as well. I remind you that our primary concern is pastoral. The new schedule will make it possible for both Fr. Sean and me to be at all Masses on the weekend to offer Confessions at the beginning of Mass, distribute Communion, and greet people at the end of Mass. The shepherds need to see and feed their sheep. From a practical perspective the schedule permits that all of the Masses may be offered at either of the churches without changing the times of the Mass. When the bishop has activities at the Cathedral the Masses that are displaced will only change place, not time. Additionally, the new schedule will require only one organist. We can now begin the process of finding a new music director who can attend to the musical needs of the entire parish.
