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
Welcome To Our Parishioners, Friends, and Vistors Who Are Now Visiting Our Parish Website!!!
This website has been prepared, 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 139 years of Catholic faith and 93 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

Laws of Fast
Those who are over 18 years of age, but not yet over 59 years of age, are obliged to observe the law of fast. On days of fast, those bound by the law, are limited to a single full meal. Two other meatless meals, sufficient to maintain strength, may be taken according to one’s needs; however, together these meals should not equal another full meal. There are two prescribed days of fast: Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.
Laws of Abstinence
Those who are 14 years of age and older are obliged to observe the laws of abstinence. On days of abstinence, those bound by the law, abstain from meat. On all Fridays of Lent, abstinence is prescribed. This, of course, includes Good Friday. Abstinence is also prescribed on Ash Wednesday.
No Catholic will hold himself or herself lightly excused from the law of fast and abstinence.
The annual Lenten campaign to feed the hungry, "Loaves & Fishes," takes place in all parishes throughout Lent. Catholic Charities and other agencies benefit from these funds that serve over 800,000 meals to the poor and homeless of the Diocese of Bridgeport. Loaves & Fishes is a major source of support for our soup kitchens and feeding programs and we urge you to participate.
