366 Project - Day 128 - "St. Matthew Parish - Norwalk, CT"


May 07, 2016 - "St. Matthew Parish - Norwalk, CT"

Tonight we're at St. Matthew's Church in Norwalk for a Mass to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Catholic Charities of Fairfield County.

The Mass - led by Bishop Frank Caggiano - was absolutely beautiful! From the opening procession by the Knights of Columbus and the Order of Malta - to the Homily by Fr. Reggie Norman, which happened to be one of the most beautiful and inspirational Homilies I've ever heard - to the incredible music by the youth choir... every aspect of the Mass was wonderful!

Following the Mass there was a reception in the church hall with lots of delicious food and drink - and some great conversations with even greater people. All-in-all, it was a truly wonderful evening!

This photo was taken as we were walking through the church on our way back to the car after all of the celebrations were over. The church was empty and most of the lights were off. There was only the lights shining upon the altar and the soft glow of the candles in the votive stands. It was so peaceful and beautiful, I had to stop and take a photo.

The Catholic Charities of Fairfield County is an amazing organization which has done even more amazing work over the last 100 years. My hope is that it will enjoy an even more amazing second century!
