Christ The Bread of Life Parish

​Social Outreach Ministry

Cards for the Sick
Stay in touch with our Parishioners who are ill and infirmed.

Book Club
Calling all bookworms.  Help us begin a spiritual book study group. We hope to meet once a week to discuss the chapters we've been assigned and to explore the work of various Christian authors.

Prayer Knitters
Are you an avid knitter? Put your skills to good use. Knit baby hats for St. Raphael's, prayer shawls for shut-ins, lap blankets for chemo patients. Talk, knit, pray!

Young at Heart Bingo
We have a group that meets in the Blessed Sacrament Campus Parish Hall from 10am-12pm for Bingo. It is a dime a card and coffee is provided. If you like to play Bingo or perhaps if you like to call Bingo, please join us for a morning of fun.

Canasta Group
There is a group who gets together Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 2PM -4PM to play Canasta. It is easy to learn how to play and they can teach you. Come join us for a social and relaxing afternoon playing cards.

Day Trippers
We have a group who loves trips and adventure. We take about four trips a year, to plays, boat trips, train trips and we will even be taking an overnight trip to Pa. Sight and Sound Theatre. Sign up to get on the mailing list.

55+ Club
We meet the first Thursday of the Month, October – June (but not Jan/Feb, due to weather issues).

We start with a Mass at 10:30, followed by a luncheon and entertainment in the Parish Hall on the Blessed Sacrament Campus. Please come and join us for some good food, great entertainment and some wonderful socialization. We are also looking for some people who are available during the day, maybe while kids are at school, to come and help set up, run it and clean up.

 High School Youth Group
Our Youth Group has been active in this Parish for over 25 years. We are open to all High School Students, grades 9-12, regardless of which parish you attend or whether or not you are even Catholic. It’s for kids who want to be a part of an organization where you can have fun, with peers you might not otherwise meet, do community service, and enjoy game nights, movie nights and discussions.  We currently have students from Hamden High, Sacred Heart, Notre Dame, ESMUS, Career, Lyman Hall, West Haven High School and Wilbur Cross High School. It’s not what you think it is, come to one meeting to see for yourself. We currently do not need Adult Volunteers for this Ministry.

Knights of Columbus
The order was founded by Father Michael J. McGivney. The organizational structure enables members to serve the community and the Church while doing so along with their family and other catholic families that share like beliefs and values.

Columbiettes
The Columbiettes is ladies auxiliary of the Knights of Columbus. Some of our projects include providing camperships to special needs persons and treasure boxes to the homeless.
