Welcome to St. Thomas the Apostle Parish

Located in East Norwalk, CT


 









 

 

 

Our History:

 

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.

Collection week of filled shoeboxes and items copntinues...

 

From children to seniors, people pack shoebox gifts each year to bless children in need around the world.

Shoeboxes are packed for ages 2-4, 5-9 and 10-14

Often the older children are harder to pack for and we would like to focus on them.  Here are some suggestions:

Girls ages 10-14: fabric, sewing scissors, thread and needles, small reusable plastic containers packed with safety pins, flashlight and batteries, stick deodorant, chapstick, hair accessories, school supplies, toothbrush, washcloths, water bottle, bar soap, socks and flip flops. Always include a WOW gift!

Boys ages 10-14: hammer, tape measure, bungee cords, screw drivers, flashlight and batteries, stick deodorant, socks, school supplies, toothbrush, washcloths, backpack/carry bag, water bottle, bar soap, rope,  pliers, work gloves, and flip flops.  

Always include a WOW gift!

 

NO type of candy or tootpaste can be included in shoebox gifts however, a child’s oral hygiene can still be improved by regular use of a toothbrush alone.

 

The collection bin for items is in the Church at the Rectory side entrance or in the Religious Formation Office!
