Saint Theresa of Avila Catholic Church is a warm and vibrant family of faith.  With current registration at nearly 300 households, the parish continues to serve area Catholics with the same dedication and enthusiasm it has had since it was established more than 145 years ago.

     The purpose of this web page is to give you an overview of the missions and activities that go on in our parish. A brief explanation of each area of ministry is given.

The faith, which has been handed down to us today, is the legacy of countless women and men who have preceded us here in the journey of faith.  We owe a great debt of gratitude to the Bishops, priests, sisters, and lay leaders who have paved the way and paid the price for the faith that was handed down to us.

     The continuation of this legacy is now in our hands.  The men, women, and children of our parish are the ones who are laying the foundation for the handing on of the faith for the next 145 years here at Saint Theresa’s.  May we be known as people who live the faith in our relationship to God and our service to one another.
