DIOCESAN BLUE MASS: Commemorating the Seventeen Anniversary of 911

Sunday,  September 9, 2018

Bishop Frank Caggiano, Presiding

A Mass for Law Enforcement, Fire and Emergency Medical Service Personnel who serve in the Diocese of Bridgeport

Everyone welcome! Reception immediately following the Mass in the School Gym


My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, 

 A flourishing Youth Ministry Program is vital for the health of St. Joseph Parish.  Likewise, a Youth Minister who is visible and engaged in the life of our community is essential for the Youth Ministry Program to grow. 


 We thank Mr. Renzo Ortega for his years here as the Parish’s Director of Youth Ministry and wish him God’s blessings as he begins his ministry at St. Rose of Lima Parish in Newtown.  Now that Renzo has concluded his ministry among us, I wanted to update you on the process of the selection of his successor. 


 We are actively engaged in the process of discerning a new Youth Minister.  This process involves a nationwide search which began after identifying our needs and calling upon God’s help in prayer.   Please be assured that we are consulting broadly, including our youth, their parents, the Core Team of lay ministers in the Program, and the lay leadership of the Parish. 


 I would ask for your prayers that the Holy Spirit sends us a faith-filled person who can inspire our youth on their path of discipleship.  We need a Youth Minister who can reach the “unchurched” and the “dechurched” in the Danbury area and make them into new disciples. We also need a Youth Minister to fall in love with this beautiful parish – our community, our School, and our landmark Church.  Not least, we need a Youth Minister who is faithful to the teachings of the Church; of good character; and an excellent example to your young people. 


 The position of Director of Youth Ministry is posted on  the website of the Diocese of Bridgeport under the Human Resources Department employment opportunities.  For those who are interested, please go to  The position is also posted at and - Resource for church jobs, pastor ...

Devotedly in Christ,

Fr. Samuel V. Scott
