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

This weekend we commemorate the incredible sacrifice of so many soldiers of all the wars in our nations’ past. What makes it especially poignant is that these wars were fought to preserve and protect freedom, the many freedoms we enjoy that so many millions and even billions in world history never could.

100 years ago, the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to now St. Jacinta, St. Francisco, and Sr. Lucia (whose cause for beatification is well underway). Central to these messages are three incredible revelations she gave to the children. Let’s talk of the first two. They are about communism taking over in Russia and spreading many errors […]

Yesterday, May 13, our many second graders received their first Holy Communion; it was also the feast of Our Lady of Fatima. What makes this timing so beautiful is that there are several profound connections. First, theologically, we can say that Mary is the Mother of the Eucharist. As the mother of Godman Jesus Christ, […]
