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


We are one body in Christ. Let us stay connected…

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…

When COVID-19 restrictions began, Journeys and the PADS program had to stop providing shelter to our area’s homeless in its normal way, at church halls and gymnasiums, one night at a time. However, because COVID also caused hotel space to open up, PADS was able to contract rooms and has been sheltering 75 persons inside since the early days of the pandemic. The change has been “phenomenal” according to Journeys. Its employees have been able to work more consistently with each person, and make improvements in physical and mental health. Removing the anxiety of having to move from place to place has been a game-changer for many individuals.
Journeys relies on donations of money, supplies and food for their work, and right now their greatest need is money. Please help if you can.

We are ALWAYS in need of people who wish to be involved in ministries and help out with events and efforts around the parish.

If you are interested in serving the St. Theresa Parish community in some way, please emai:
