The regimental chaplain of General Lafayette's staff celebrated the first Mass in Weston when the Continental troops were bivouacked in this area. In September of 1953, more than 150 years later, 35 people from eight families met at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Clifford E. Smith, in the presence of Father Joseph Cleary, pastor of Sacred Heart Parish in Georgetown, who became the group's first spiritual director. They met to discuss the possibility of a Catholic parish in Weston and how to go about it. To attend Mass, Weston Catholics had to travel a distance south to the Church of the Assumption in Westport or north to Sacred Heart Church in Georgetown.
