Our Lady of Loreto is a Catholic Community brought together by the belief that Jesus is Lord. We are called to share in His mission to bring about the Kingdom of God in our midst by proclaiming the Good News of Jesus in word and deed. Therefore, we pledge ourselves to build a community where all are welcomed, loved, needed, and appreciated. We will recognize and affirm the gifts and talents of one another while proclaiming the ideal of shared ministry. We make this pledge in confidence that the Lord will assist us and bless us as we strive to realize this vision.
Thank you for visiting. If you need further assistance please call the Rectory at 203.757.6112
We are in desperate need of Altar Servers and Readers.
Become an Altar Server:
Altar Servers have a rich heritage, going back to Jesus Himself. In preparation for the Last Supper, Jesus sent two of His disciples to prepare the Passover for Himself and the Twelve. Over the centuries, the ceremonies became more complex and Latin became the language of the Church. Specially trained assistants called Acolytes became common. Eventually this evolved into today’s Altar Servers who love Jesus, love the Mass, and want to give their time and talent in the service of God and His Church. We are hoping the children of our parish, who have made their First Communion, will take this opportunity to become Altar Servers.
Father Allan can’t wait to train you all on a Saturday morning after Easter. Please call the rectory if you love Jesus, love Mass and want to become an Altar Servicer. 203-757-6112.

At this time our troops in Afghanistan, Africa, the Middle East and the high seas find themselves in difficult and life threatening situations. This exacts an extreme physical, emotional, and psychological toll on them. Our chaplains are a first line of defense against the issues faced by our troops.
Through Holy Joe's Cafe Ministry, the support that is offered to them is so effective and well received, that the outreach program has grown to assist hundreds of chaplains of various faiths.
