Youth Group - The Edge

“Youth Nights” will be starting once again, Sunday evening August 28th at 7:00pm in the Holy Spirit “Youth Room”. Any and all teens (grades 8-12) are welcome to join us, as we explore our Catholic Faith in a unique way, often with a fun or crazy activity. “Youth Nights” are a great way to draw closer to God, in a relaxed environment, while meeting other youth. Please feel free to join us for any and all the events and to invite a friend to come along. Hope to see you there!

Pray for the Upcoming Election


Catholics Care. Catholics Vote.
"We need to participate for the common good. Sometimes we hear: a good Catholic is not interested in politics. This is not true: good Catholics immerse themselves in politics by offering the best of themselves so that the leader can govern." Pope Francis, 9/16/13

Adult Religious Education Opportunities - Everyone is Welcome!


We continue the FIRST and THIRD Thursdays of the month at 7:00 p.m.: August 4 & 18, 2016. Bring your bible and be guided through God's inspired word by Dr. Phil Gigliotti.

"CHRISTMAS IN JULY" - Thank You !!!

“And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” Colossians 3:17

To all of the generous parishioners at St. Teresa’s, we cannot thank you enough for all of the donations to Blessing House. We delivered 5 car loads of donated items to Sr. Mary Berigan on Sunday, July 24th. She was so thrilled! THANK YOU!! - The Social Concerns Committee


Scripture clearly says that God wants to have an intimate relationship with each of us.

Yet it can be challenging to feel close to one we can’t always see. It may help to remember that Jesus is a living person, still accessible and available. “Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things which you have not known” (Jeremiah 33:33). See the attached document.
