Dear Parishioners and Friends,

Welcome back!

It’s been ten weeks since Mass was celebrated publicly in the churches of the Diocese of Bridgeport. It was certainly a blessing to see so many of you at our first attempt of outdoor Masses. Thanks to our parish ministries and volunteers; it was very well prepared and everyone seemed to be very pleased with the safety in place. 

So, as we move forward, please be aware of the following:

  • All our outdoors celebrations are weather permitting 
  • Reservations for Mass are available on a first-come, first-served basis (a sign-up link for the next four weeks is below)
  • Be sure to bring your own chairs 
  • All who attend Mass use a face mask or other covering
  • Remain standing at Communion time if you want to receive
  • Missals are not available for use. If you want to follow along please visit http://www.usccb.org/bible/readings/ and print off the Readings and responses to bring with you

To sign up for future outdoor Masses, please visit:


Finally, I want to express my gratitude to those families and individuals who provided generous contributions to the parish over these last couple of months. Your kindness is very much appreciated. Since we have been without regular offertory income, your continued consideration, as best you can, is appreciated. We are now accepting Venmo as a form of "touch-less giving". You may make a donation using @OLSS-Stamford

I truly look forward to seeing everyone again! For those of you that are not ready to venture out, please remember the obligation to attend Sunday Mass is still suspended until further notice. 


May God bless you always,
Fr Peter

If you would like an "OLSS Heroes on the Front Line" yard sign for your lawn we have just a few left! If you can help offset some of the printing costs with a small donation, that would be great! Please email [email protected] for more information. Thank you!

All grades meet on Sunday mornings 10:00-11:00 a.m. This enables families to attend Mass prior to or after Faith Formation class and we follow the City of Stamford school/holiday schedule.
