Welcome to Saint Teresa of Avila Parish!
We are delighted to have you join our parish family!
We are committed to inviting and supporting every parishioner to become a disciple of Christ, building God's Kingdom through our prayer, service, and outreach to others in faith. Working together, we seek to build a strong community of faith where all are welcome and inspired by the Gospel to live God's mission with faith, hope, and love.
I invite and encourage you to connect with the members and ministries of our parish, and I look forward to meeting you personally. As in every family, we expect our parishioners to engage in parish life and to do their part in creating a better community.
If there is anything we can do to help you in your journey with God, please do not hesitate to contact any member of our team or a ministry leader. You can find many of our contacts here on our website or call our parish office for assistance.
We seek to offer as many opportunities for parishioners to come together in faith as possible. If there is a personal or family need that arises, please know that we are always available to assist you in any way we can.
I pray you may find warmth, encouragement, and spiritual growth here at St Teresa. I look forward to getting to know you personally in the weeks and months ahead.
God bless you and your family.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Monsignor Robert S Meyer, aka "Fr Bob"

What can I expect at Mass?
Depending on the Mass you attend, you will notice a different environment.
Our Sunday 7:30 AM Mass in the Church does not have music.
The Sunday 10:30 AM Mass in the Church is more traditional, with our choir offering music. This Mass is currently live-streamed on our website, Facebook, and YouTube.
Our Sunday 9:00 AM Family Mass in Memorial Hall utilizes tv screens, differentiated music, and a message series during the homilies to create an engaging Mass experience.
Our Sunday noon Mass in the Church is in Spanish and led by our lively Spanish community.
Our Sunday 5 PM Mass in the Church offers contemporary music and a message series, with our Middle Schoolers attending programs afterward.
What else do I need to know?
Regardless of whether you have never been to Mass before or you are coming from another Church, you are welcome here!
Introduce yourself when you're here; we'd love to meet you!
Every Catholic should be registered in a parish.
Besides the active support and involvement that the registration enables, parish registration is also a mandatory condition for many sacraments, including Baptism and Matrimony.
It is, therefore, essential to register at your local parish as soon as you start worshiping there regularly.
(1) You may receive verification letters to sponsor individuals for sacraments, receive sacraments yourself or your child
(i.e., marriage, baptism).
(2) You will have the opportunity to establish an easy online giving at https://www.st-teresa.org/donate and receive an end-of-the-year tax contribution statement.
(3) You will be personally invited to gatherings to meet the staff and other parishioners.
(4) The parish will know the demographics and respond to needs. Further, the Archdiocese will know that our parish has a healthy base of registered, supportive parishioners.
