Youth Group - The Edge

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. Call the church office for more information and dates of upcoming meetings. 440-934-4227.

Four Ways to Build a Special Relationship with Jesus

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.

Social Concerns Committee

We are looking for parishioners who would like to be a member of the Social Concerns Committee.

We support several different ministries in our local community including Lorain County Birthright, St. Joe’s Homeless Shelter, Back to School Drive for several local schools, and St. Frances' Mother Cabrini Food Pantry to name a few. We meet on Saturday morning every other month. Our next meeting will be June 10, 2017.

PaperRetriever Recycling

St. Teresa’s has a paper recycling bin. It is stationed in the back corner of our parking lot (north east) behind the four car garage. The paper we collect will not only keep our environment
cleaner (less thrown into landfills), it will also raise some money for the parish.

Here is How You Can Help
You can recycle paper at our location 7 days a week.

We earn money for paper dropped off at our green and yellow Paper Retriever® bin.
