The physical body needs nourishment; therefore we eat. The spiritual body needs nourishment too; therefore we pray, we draw closer to God, and we gather as a community to acknowledge Our Almighty Father, his only Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit - the three persons in the one Holy Trinity.
Indeed, in keeping with its name, Most Holy Trinity Church exists to do exactly that - to be a spiritual community for Catholics in Wallingford to come together, to celebrate the Holy Mass, and to support and encourage one another during life's good and bad times.
We - the priests, deacons, lay ministers and staff of the parish - are here to help you draw closer to Jesus. Whether you are a long-time parishioner, or someone newly seeking out a spiritual home, we want you to feel welcome and comfortable.
Particularly during these tough times we are experiencing due to the Coronavirus, please call upon us in any way, by calling the rectory at 203-269-8791 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Know that Father Gutierrez and I continue to say mass for all of you, for all of Wallingford, and for all those affected and suffering.

As of March 1, 2021 Most Holy Trinity and Our Lady of Fatima are linked. Fr. Andres Mendoza, Pastor, assisted by Fr. Eduar Gutierrez and Fr. Matthew Collins, Parochial Vicars.
This linkage will be followed by merger of the two parishes (and a later merger with the Church of the Resurrection.) For the parishioners of all three parishes, this is a major turning point. All have had their own separate parish histories of worship and service and sacrificial support by parishioners.
Now, we are being asked to embrace a new vision as members of one parish across the whole town, and to create a new history together with eventually three campuses. A transition team will be formed to plan the merger of Most Holy Trinity and Our Lady of Fatima, assisted by the pastoral planning department of the Archdiocese.
May God bless the Catholic community of Wallingford!
On January 1, 2022, Most Holy Trinity Parish in Wallingford, will merge with Our Lady of Fatima Parish in Yalesville, in accordance with canons 121 & 515 §2 of the Code of Canon Law. On September 28, 2021, Archbishop Leonard P. Blair issued a decree effecting the merger of the two parishes in Wallingford/Yalesville, Connecticut.
During the weekend of October 9/10, 2021, the decree will be read at all Masses, and its substance will be communicated to all parishioners by means of a notice in the weekend bulletins at the churches, so that parishioners can read it as they enter or exit the churches. It will also be available on the Archdiocese of Hartford website, under the News/Public Notices Section, [https://archdioceseofhartford.org/public-notices/]. Canonical recourse may be made within the peremptory time limit of ten (10) days from the legitimate notification of the decree and in accordance with the norm of law (c. 1734 §2 ).
Reverend Ryan M. Lerner, Chancellor

Heavenly Father, we thank you for the many blessings you daily bestow on us even in the midst of the trials and sufferings of a pandemic.
Your goodness is without measure, and your providence exceeds all that we could ask or imagine. We ask you to look kindly upon this year’s Archbishop’s Annual Appeal, “Reaching Out, Healing Together.” Open our eyes to the spiritual and material needs of others. Open our hearts to respond generously. May the divine mercy that fills the Sacred Heart of Jesus move us to give of ourselves and what we have as generously as we have received from You. May those who suffer in any way as a result of the coronavirus be assisted and comforted by the ministry of the Church and the good works supported by the appeal, and may the efforts to eradicate this disease prove successful with your blessing. We make our prayer in the name of the healer of souls and bodies, Our Lord Jesus Christ.
