Welcome to St. Thomas the Apostle Parish

Located in East Norwalk, CT

 









 

 

 

Our Mission Statement:

 

On May 1, 1935, Most Reverend Maurice F. McAuliffe, Bishop of the Diocese of Hartford, which included the entire State of Connecticut, established the Parish of St. Thomas the Apostle in East Norwalk with Reverend Thomas J. Sullivan appointed as the first pastor. Under Father Sullivan's guidance, the newly-formed parish began holding services on Sunday, May 5, 1935, in the auditorium of Roger Ludlow Junior High School.  The boundaries of the parish were roughly described as Long Island Sound on the South, Norwalk River on the West, Westport Avenue on the North and the Town of Westport on the East.  The new Parish numbered about 900 parishioners who were former members of St. Mary and St. Joseph churches. For eight decades now, St. Thomas Church in East Norwalk, CT, has been a beacon of hope, faith and love for many, many faithful parishioners and their families. Today, numbering over 1450 families we are a community of believers in Jesus Christ striving to proclaim the Gospel in word and deed. Through worship, evangelization, formation and service we invite our brothers and sisters to know the Lord.

 

We invite you to join us for our Sunday Liturgies, ongoing catechetical, educational and social activities as we all strive to discover new ways of sharing faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.

VBS 2016: 

 

 

Thank you to all the amazing teens and adults who made this year’s Vacation Bible School a hug success.  The week was full of Bible stories, Sacraments, Science, Arts & Crafts and Recreation all taught by the teens.  We started the week on Monday with getting to know each other; Tuesday was day with Nocturnal animals.  Stamford Natural Center brought some amazing and cool animals for the children to touch and see; Wednesday was Ice Cream day; Thursday the children got to jump around in a bounce house on the Rectory lawn and Friday was the wrap up day with a beautiful Mass shared with the counselors, campers and families.  We had a total of 30 campers who participated in this great Summer Fun!  Thanks to Norwalk Pizza & Pasta and to Mike’s Deli who help (discounting) with the food provided to the teens each day.
