Welcome Home!

Welcome to  Saint Teresa of Avila Parish! 

 

We are delighted to have you join our 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 look forward to meeting you personally.   

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 ministry leaders. 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 that 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 Meyer aka "Fr Bob"

Looking to Visit?

Where do I go when I get there?


If you are attending one of our several Masses in our Main Church, our parking lot is adjacent to it, with entrances on Morris Ave and Locust St. Parking for Memorial Hall Masses is located to the left of Memorial Hall, with the lot entrance on Broad St. There is handicap access at the left side entrance of the Main Church and at the right side entrance of Memorial Hall. If you have questions during your time here, feel free to visit our Information Center, located to the far left of the Main Church's lobby.




What do I do if I have kids?


Kids are welcome here at any of our Masses. At Memorial Hall (located across the street from our Main Church), we have a 9:00 AM Family Mass. In between these Masses we have FAITH FX, an engaging experience for children in grades 1-4 and their parents. You can register on our Children's Ministry webapge, located under Faith Formation, to take part in FAITH FX.




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! No need to try to impress anyone when you come. Just be yourself. Introduce yourself when you're here; we'd love to meet you!




What can I expect at Mass?


Depending on the Mass you attend you will notice a different feel. Our Sunday 7:30am Masses do not have music. The Sunday 9am and 10:30am Masses are more traditional, with our choir offering terrific music. These Masses are currently livestreamed on our website, Facebook and YouTube. Our Sunday 9:00am Family Mass in Memorial Hall utilizes tv screens, differentiated music, and message series during the homilies to create an engaging Mass experience. Our Sunday 12pm Mass in the Main Church is in Spanish and led by our lively Spanish community. This Mass is currently livestreamed on our website, Facebook and YouTube. Our Sunday 5pm Mass is geared toward our Teen population, with contemporary music and message series, with our Middle Schoolers attending programs afterwards.
