BRIDGEPORT - More than 8,000 people filled the Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport Saturday morning for a special Mass organized by the city's Catholic Diocese.

Diocese members say the event celebrated the end of a year-long campaign to refocus the church in Fairfield County.

The synod Mass was to be televised Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Cablevision channel 84.
