About Our Church

Saint Theresa Parish was originally created on October 4, 1934 by Bishop Maurice F. McAuliffe of Hartford. Aware of the spiritual needs of the people of Trumbull, the Bishop made Saint Theresa’s the first Catholic Church in Trumbull, and dedicated it in honor of Saint Theresa, the Little Flower of Jesus.

Bishop McAuliffe dedicated the original small white frame church on September 22, 1935 so that Saint Theresa’s functioned as a true parish. The original church was a classic New England colonial design that could seat some four hundred people, and the neighboring McLevy homestead became the parish rectory.

 In 1960, Bishop Lawrence J. Shehan gave permission to construct the present cathedral-like granite and limestone church building, which was dedicated by Bishop Walter W. Curtis on April 1, 1962. Today, Saint Theresa is considered the Mother Church of Trumbull and is currently blessed with over 3,100 parishioner families, and several active ministries. We invite you to join us for Mass, Eucharistic Adoration, Confession, or Devotions. Take a tour of our website, and follow us on social media.

The glory of God’s humble birth as a defenseless, vulnerable baby, safeguarded by a wife and husband powerless against the Roman Empire and King Herod, is again contrasted with modern evil. We […]

The great British Catholic convert GK Chesterton wrote: “the way to love anything is to realize it might be lost.” This quote can especially cause us good reflection as we commence Advent. It is interesting how this can describe cars, homes, sentimental possessions, all things that can serve useful purposes but interestingly, we will lose! […]

Pope Pius XI wrote in 1925: “If We ordain that the whole Catholic world shall revere Christ as King, We shall minister to the need of the present day, and at the same time provide an excellent remedy for the plague which now infects society… This evil spirit… has not come into being in one […]
