Bishop Caggiano Offering Answers to
Frequently Asked Questions
An Act of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love you above all things.
And I desire to receive you into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, come at least
spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You.
Beware of Email Scams!
Be Aware! There have been a number of email scams where the sender appears to be Father Cyrus. The actual email address is not his, it is some fake Gmail address.
Note: Father is never going to email you asking “for a favor” or for you to send “Gift Cards”. If you have any questions about the authenticity of an email, please call the office @ 203-227-5161.
