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!
-Fr. Victor T. Martin, 15th Pastor of St. Thomas Aquinas Church

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.
It's that time of year again and the Advent Giving Tree.
This is an enormous project and every year the parish rises to the occasion. St. Thomas Aquinas families and parishioners share their generosity with many people in Fairfield and Bridgeport. Through the Advent Giving Tree, we provide specific gifts for individual families from St. Charles and St. Mary parishes in Bridgeport and Catholic Charities families, coats for Mercy Learning Center, warm weather clothing for patrons of the Ella Grasso Center, gift cards for Operation Hope, books and games for children of the Cardinal Sheehan Center, outfits for the Missionary Sisters' pre-school children, toys for the Daughters of Charity Convent, and we provide help for families in our own parish.
Please take tags from the trees at the entrances of the parish and bring the item back, unwrapped, by the date on the tag. If you return your gift during the week, please bring it to the Parish Office where it will be secure. If you return your gift after a weekend Mass, please bring it to the boxes in the Church. If you are available to help deliver items to Bridgeport please contact Jessica stthomasfairfieldyouth@ gmail.com Thank you in advance for your generosity!

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.
