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.

"Whoever has not begun the practice of prayer, I beg for the love of the Lord not to go without so great a good. There is nothing here to fear but only something to desire."




OCTOBER 25 & 26
Christians suffer in many parts of the world, but one unique group stands out by their significance for the family of faith. The Christians of the Middle East live in the land where Jesus walked, taught, suffered, and died. Today their numbers are greatly reduced, and they struggle to survive in the land made holy by Christ. Little Bethlehem is with us THIS WEEKEND trying to offer religious items, carved from the olive wood. By purchasing the items you are helping your brothers and sister stay attached to their roots and keep their churches open.
