Connect With and Serve Others…

Christ has no body now on earth but yours; no hands but yours; no feet but yours. Yours are the eyes through which the compassion of Christ must look out on the world. Yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good. Yours are the hands with which He is to bless His people.

Saint Teresa of Avila

Serve

We have an incredible opportunity as Christians to bear witness to the Catholic faith by not turning inward but by giving sacrificially of ourselves. We are all on a mission and there are many ways we can help our brothers and sisters in need. Consider prayerfully joining us. Let’s be the hands of Christ…

Volunteer for Parish Reopening Teams
We are still in need of many more people to continue offering daily and weekend Masses, daily Adoration, as well as for the continued process of reopening our church.

The three teams of volunteers are:

  • Set-up team
  • Greeting team
  • Cleaning team

If you are healthy, and have younger members of your family over the age of 18 who wish to assist, please consider signing up to help at: servicehours@sttheresachurch.org


Sewing Isolation Gowns for St. Joseph’s Home
St. Joseph’s Home is looking for people who are able to sew. We are in need of Isolation gowns. We have everything needed; the pattern, material, elastic, Velcro, and twill tape. If you are able to help us, or know someone who could help with this project, or have questions, please contact Cindy DeLuca at 847-358-5700 or cindyvaagen@gmail.com.


St. Vincent de Paul Ministry
The work of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is the Gospel message in action…
I was hungry … I was thirsty …I was a stranger …I was naked …I was sick …I was in prison … and you helped. Find out more about how you can accompany the St. Theresa Chapter of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul in their mission to serve those in need, or email svdppalatine@gmail.com.


Food Pantry
With the pandemic, families are more in need of food than ever.
The Food Pantry at the Palatine Opportunity Center / Community Resource Center is serving exponentially more families than typically served.

The Food Pantry is accepting food donations from 10am-Noon every Thursday at 1585 N. Rand Road in Palatine (on the side doors facing Walmart – south side of building). All staples are needed.


Shop for the Homebound
A local group of volunteers has organized grocery shopping and delivery for those in our community who are most at risk. Find out more about Helping Hands Delivery and how you can volunteer.

Cleaning Supplies and PPE for St. Theresa Parish
As we continue the process of gradually reopening our parish, we find ourselves in need of steadily replenished supplies that keep everyone safe while here and keep us in compliance with Archdiocesan certification.

We could use additional quantities of the following:
• Disposable Gloves – sizes Large and X-Large
• Disposable Masks (Click here for a resource)
• Hand Sanitizer (individual bottles)

If you are able to acquire any of these items and wish to donate them to the parish, please contact servicehours@sttheresachurch.org.


Face Masks
As of May 1, everyone in Illinois is required to wear a face mask in public. We are matching up people who are in need of a mask with those who are sewing them, so we can all be safe in public!

If you are in need of a mask, please email servicehours@sttheresachurch.org.

If you sew and would like to help out others who might need a mask, please email servicehours@sttheresachurch.org.


Coffee Donations for Little Sisters
Parishioner Mary Ann Falkenberg is collecting coffee donations for The Little Sisters / St. Joseph’s Home. If you are interested in donating coffee, email nicolec@sttheresachurch.org for drop-off instructions. Coffee is delivered on the first of the month.

  1. Northwest Community Hospital’s supply donation phone number is no longer available. You have to send an email and just an FYI I sent an email a few weeks ago and have not had a reply as of today. Thank you!
