O GOD, throughout the ages you have called women and men to pursue lives of perfect charity through the evangelical counsels of poverty, chastisty, and obedience. During this Year of Consecrated Life, we give you thanks for these courageous witnesses of Faith and modesl of inspiration. Their pursuit of holy lives teaches us to make a more perfect offering of ourselves to you. Continue to enrich your Church by calling forth sons and daughters who, have found the pearl of great price, treasure the Kindgom of Heaven above all things. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unitey of the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever Amen

Advent Giving Tree
It's that time of year again
(Beginning Nov. 28th/29th)
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 MercyLearning 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.
If anyone would like to “adopt a family” and purchase gifts for a family please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
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 at stthomasfairfieldyouth@ gmail.com /740-424-4581 Thank you in advance for your generosity!!
DIOCESE OF BRIDGEPORT PILGRIMAGE TO BASILICA OF NATIONAL SHRINE OF IMMACULATE CONCEPTION
IN WASHINGTON DC
SATURDAY NOVEMBER 5, 2016
Pope Francis has dedicated an extraordinary Holy Year, the Jubilee of Mercy, from 12/8/15 to 12/8/16. Each diocese has been asked to sponsor a pilgrimage of mercy during that time. Since it would be impractical to run 2 pilgrimages within 12 or 13 months, the Synod Pilgrimage to the National Shrine in Washington DC has been rescheduled to take place on Saturday, November 5, 2016 as an event of the Jubilee of Mercy. We hope you will consider attending at that new time. Contact Gina for more information at email@example.com or 203-416-1446
