The nearly 100-year-old ceiling in the fellowship hall collapsed January 31, 2017. Fortunately, nobody was injured. But not having use of Pilgrim Hall or connecting rooms is a hardship for the community of Bridgeport's most vulnerable citizens. The hall houses their soup kitchen, emergency shelter, and food pantry and other services for residents of Downtown Bridgeport.
The hall needs repair in order to continue serving the community. Insurance is covering $50,000 of the repairs, leaving a $95,000 balance.
