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

"Our greatest gain is to lose the wealth that is of such brief duration and, by comparison with eternal things, of such little worth; yet we get upset about it and our gain turns to loss.”

Dear Father Kwiatkowski,
On behalf of St. Vincent DePaul Mission Shelter in Waterbury, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your Parish for the generous donations of food. It provides the shelter community with such great hope that there are those who may offer their services for the good of the less fortunate. Thanks to your support, we are able to provide many nutritious meals to our guests here. The smiles on their faces is proof enough how sincerely grateful the shelter is. With your continuing support, we can directly help the poor and homeless in the city of Waterbury.
Sofia Swaby Shelter Manager
