Sacrament of Reconciliation
Welcome to St. Theresa of Avila
We are a community of faith, that provides support, encouragement and spiritual guidance to a reverent and changing liturgy consistent with the Catholic faith.
It is also our mission, through stewardship and ministry, to meet the needs of the poor, homeless and jobless.
We now offer Electronic Giving
Through the continued generosity of you, the parishioners of St. Theresa of Avila, we are able to meet the parish's financial obligations. We ask that you prayerfully consider your financial commitment to the parish. Please contact the Church Office to receive weekly stewardship contribution envelopes, if you are not already receiving them.
Besides the use of envelopes, we are happy to announce the possibility of financial stewardship through Electronic Giving. With proper authorization, a set amount can be automatically drafted from your checking account either monthly or semi-monthly. This has proven to be a very helpful tool for many parishioners. Simply complete the "Automatic Bank Draft Authorization" form to begin using Electronic Giving. We will institute this program on January 1, 2014.
I hope you prayerfully consider using this new service. Thank you for your continued generosity and trust.I am sincerely yours in Christ,

Electronic Authorization Form
St. John Primary and St. Theresa Middle are participating in the Accreditation for Catholic Schools which focuses on Catholic School Effectiveness.
Part of the accreditation process asks for community input through a survey. The administration would appreciate it if St. Theresa parishioners would complete an online anonymous survey to help us gain important data. The survey is open from today until November 30th. The internet link is provided below. We appreciate your time and input.http://www.advanc-ed.org/survey/public/5655843/
