Our Mission
St Teresa of Avila Parish strives to be a vibrant, welcoming Catholic Community. We live out our fervent belief in Jesus Christ's presence among us by celebrating the Eucharist as a family and by embracing the Stewardship Way of Life. In this way we show our love for God and reach out to our neighbor in loving service.

From Our Patroness
 
St. Teresa
of Avila

"Vocal prayer . . . must be accompanied by reflection. A prayer in which a person is not aware of Whom he is speaking to, what he is asking, who it is who is asking and of Whom, I don't call prayer-----however much the lips may move."

BEST LENT EVER
Matthew Kelly and his Team are sponsoring a Lenten Program called “Best Lent Ever” based on the book, Rediscover Jesus, which you received this past Christmas. Each day you’ll receive an inspirational email with a short video that will guide you through each of the 40 chapters in this book, sharing simple ways to bring Jesus into your everyday life. All you have to do is sign up at DynamicCatholic.com/BestLentEver. Let’s do something life-changing this Lent. Let’s take a 40-day spiritual journey to encounter Jesus, and ourselves, in a deeply personal way.
