"When you give alms, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing,
so that your almsgiving may be secret.
And your Father who sees in secret will repay you.”
Matthew 6:3-4

Our Parish offers several opportunities to give alms:

  • Our Food Pantry, the Compassionate Carmelites is open Monday Tuesday and Wednesday 9:30am to 12 noon, or by appointment, for anyone in need of non-perishable items.  Please contact the Parish Office at 203-756-8981 for more information.

    Donations may be dropped off at the Parish Office during normal business hours as noted above, or may be left in the food pantry bins located in the Vestibule and the elevator in the Lower Church.  Bins are also located at The Tree of Life in the Lowe Church.

    “Two of the Corporal Works of Mercy ask us
    to Feed the Hungry and Give Drink to the Thirsty.”

  • Money may be donated through our offertory envelope system, directly to the Parish Operating Fund, or the School Trust Fund.
  • Store gift certificates for Town Plot IGA, ShopRite, Stop & Shop, Big Y, and Macy's may be bought at the Parish Office. Five percent (5%) of your face value certificate and 10% from Macy's are donated back to our School.
  • Collections at weekend liturgies, Mass and Candle Intentions for memorials of the dearly departed, for the sick and ill, in honor of a Saint, or a variety of other intentions.
  • You are also invited to memorialize a recently deceased loved one through a monetary gift to our Parish in lieu of flowers at the wake or funeral.

We now accept MasterCard, Visa, and ATM cards for your convenience and to help add to any bonus or point programs you may be enrolled in.
