Chris Ritacco began attending St Thomas’s in January of 2011 while looking for a new parish within New Haven with his wife Rachel. The decision to attend St. Thomas’s was based on the beautiful music and full acceptance of children as part of the parish. In the past Chris has wished to join the vestry but timing just had not worked out. Chris came to New Haven for graduate school and has fallen in love with the area. He currently teaches physics courses in an adjunct role at University of Hartford and lives in New Britain with his wife Rachel and their precocious daughter Sylvia.
