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!

Is there anyone who is sick and in need of God's healing? If so, then please come to our Annual Communal Anointing of the Sick celebration on Sunday, October 5th at 2:30 p.m. in our Church. The Sacrament of the Sick will be administered to anyone who has a serious illness. Anticipating major surgery, the weakness that accompanies old age or any serious illness, these are reasons for an individual to request anointing.
Feel free to bring a relative or friend with you. Also, all parishioners, even though you will not/or cannot receive the Sacrament, are welcome to come and pray with us at this special Mass of healing. Please call the PARISH CENTER at 255-1097 to let us know that you are coming. This Mass will also satisfy your Sunday obligation.

THE 7TH ANNUAL
CONNECTICUT CATHOLIC MEN’S CONFERENCE
Will take place on Saturday, October 25, 2014 from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 pm on the grounds of Goodwin College in east Hartford. This is a joint effort of the three dioceses of Connecticut and the eparchy of Stamford.
This year’s theme is: “I Thirst! For justice, compassion, forgiveness, salvation, truth, wisdom, for you.” The title highlights the urgent need in our society for relationships to be strengthened by faith and marked by God’s love and mercy.
Information can be obtained at www.ctcatholicmen.org or call our 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.
