Welcome to St. Thomas More

We, the parish family of St. Thomas More Church in Fairfield, NJ, take as our Mission Statement the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

There can be found all that we are and hope to become. Nourished by the Eucharist, alive with the Holy Spirit, in communion with the Church Universal, and (following the example of our Patron Saint) faithful to its teachings, we form a family of faith blessed by God beyond all our imaginings. We dedicate ourselves to the principles of Stewardship as we mobilize our time, talent and treasure in the service of the Gospel of Life which forms the center of our lives.

St. Thomas More

A noted English lawyer, social philosopher, author &  statesman, St. Thomas More was an important counselor to Henry VIII of England and was Lord Chancellor from October 1529 to 16 May 1532. He was canonized by Pope Pius XI in 1935 as one of the early martyrs of the schism that separated the Church of England from Rome in the 16th century.

During the Jubilee Year 2000, Pope John Paul II proclaimed St. Thomas More the patron saint of politicians and lawyers. As a husband, father of four children, loyal subject and faithful Christian, the Church places the life of St. Thomas More before us for our veneration and imitation. The example of his life and his willingness to die for the truth stand as a witness for all.

The Church of St. Thomas More in Fairfield was built in 1964 and welcomes all who come to pray and worship.
