Cooperative Parish Sharing
What is Cooperative Parish Sharing?
Cooperative Parish Sharing is a program of the Archdiocese of Hartford through which parishes across the Archdiocese make voluntary contributions to support the efforts of low-income parishes to meet the vital needs of their communities.
These annual pledges and the projects they support help to build solidarity among all of the parishes, suburban and urban, and provide an effective tool for empowerment and evangelization throughout the Archdiocese.
St. Aedan - St. Brendan Catholic School in New Haven is one of thirty Catholic parishes and schools in the Archdiocese of Hartford that received Cooperative Parish Sharing (CPS) grants for the 2014-2015 year. The CPS program funded a grant that enabled St. Aedan - St. Brendan to run a summer-school enrichment program for its students for the fourth consecutive year.

Pledges are solicited from parishes each January, and are payable in monthly, quarterly or annual payments throughout the calendar year. Parish pledges are the sole source of funding for this important program. We are grateful to the many parishes of the Archdiocese that support this ministry so generously.
CPS Grant Awards
CPS Grants are awarded in parishes located in low-income neighborhoods, for projects that benefit their communities. Examples of projects receiving funding are: migrant worker outreach; leadership development programs; and faith formation programs grounded in social justice.
