Welcome To Our Parishioners, Friends, and Vistors Who Are Now Visiting Our Parish Website!!!
This website has been preapred, in order to inform about our parish and all the events that are taking place here at St. Thomas Aquinas Parish.
Our parish has been around for many years and has been given the grand title "The Mother Church of Fairfield." This year we are celebrating 138 years of Catholic faith and 92 years of Catholic education in our community of Fairfield!
We are strong in our faith and service to the people of our community and each other. I have been blessed to be your pastor for the last 19 years, and together we have grown in the love of God and each other! I thank you for all your prayers and support as we continue our journey into this new year!
May God continue to bless you and your families!

Lets come together to give thanks to God
COVENANT HOUSE COLLECTION
Each year on Thanksgiving Day at our 8 am morning Mass, a special collection is taken up for Covenant House in NYC. This collection helps runaway teenagers to receive help with food and shelter and medical attention at Covenant House. Perhaps you will be away for Thanksgiving Day Mass but would like to give an offering to help these young people? Please place a gift in any Sunday offertory marked for this purpose or send it directly to the Parish Office.
Did you know that St. Thomas has its own cemetery on Mill Plain Road, just a short distance from our church??? It’s been around since the 1860”s. There is a saying, “Everyone wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die!” It’s true, this is one subject that we all frown upon and really do not want to talk about. However, it is our future and future of our families. Have you thought about a plot? A graveside? A final resting place? If not, perhaps now is a time to think about and then put it behind you until the day comes that the Good Lord calls you home.
Call our parish office, ask for Catherine Lopata our Cemetery Manager to see what is available at the St. Thomas Cemetery and Mausoleum at 203-255-1097.
