BCAF Reception 2019
On Thursday, September 5, Bishop Libasci hosted approximately 380 guests at the Summer Reception for the Bishop's Charitable Assistance Fund, held this year on the grounds of St. Pius X Parish in Manchester. The Summer Reception, held annually, marked the end of another successful campaign for the BCAF, which this year raised some $240,000 that will be distributed during the coming year to non-profit agencies that help meet the needs of the most vulnerable of our fellow citizens throughout the state. This is the highest amount raised since the 2001 campaign. Bishop Libasci also presented the 5th annual Vita et Caritas Award to Deacon Frank Ottaviano, Assistant Chaplain, at Catholic Medical Center in Manchester. With the award, a $2,500 grant was presented to the Wilson Street Integrated Health which is a service of the Health Care for the Homeless Program of Manchester, a collaboration between CMC and the Manchester Health Department.
