About Our Church

church-alter-2

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. New parishioners please visit our Parish Office to register in person!

The most burning question in our life should be the young man’s who approached Christ: Teacher, what good must I do to inherit eternal life? (Mt 19: 16) Another crucial question: in what life will I best serve the Lord? Crucial, because in fact God does call many people to religious life. If God does […]

What people don’t realize is how much religion costs. They think faith is a big electric blanket, when of course it is the cross. So wrote the brilliant southern writer Flan- nery O’Connor, from not only her understanding of Catholic theology, but from her own personal experience of suffering from systemic lupus erythematosus. Born in […]
