About Our Parish


Parish Mission Statement

We of Saint Teresa of Avila Parish have been called together by God as a worshipping community. Embracing the traditions of our Catholic Faith, we are challenged to teach the gospel truths and to serve our neighbors. We seek to recognize Christ in each person, and together be a sign of His presence in the world. Through prayer and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and through collective use of our individual gifts, we strive to reach out with love to others, to share our Catholic values, and to build the Kingdom of God in our time and place.
