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 140 years of Catholic faith and 94 years of Catholic education in our community of Fairfield!
May God continue to bless you and your families!
-Fr. Victor T. Martin, 15th Pastor of St. Thomas Aquinas Church
Jesus is the Anointed One - The ultimate priest, prophet and king foreshadowed throughout the Hebrew Scriptures. Join us as we deepen our relationship with Jesus Christ through Fr. Robert Barron's new DVD-based Study program: Priest, Prophet, King. Bible Study will take place in the Parish Center Conference Room A Wednesday evenings in Lent at 7pm starting March 8th.
Sign up is requested so we can order study materials. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the parish office. The cost for this study is free for parishioners. All are welcome.
For more information on the study itself, please go to our page:
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.
The Ladies Guild February meeting followed by ‘Bingo’ is scheduled for February 28th at 6:00 pm in the Parish Center. Refreshments will be served. A donation of $3 per person to defray the cost is suggested. Please save the date and plan on attending this fun filled evening with a friend. Meeting is contingent on weather condition.
Thank you sincerely for supporting our ‘Baby Shower.’
