"I pray not only for these, but for those also who through their words will believe in me. May they all be one. Father, may they be one in us, as you are in me and I am in you, so that the world may believe it was you who sent me." (John 17: 20-21).

We are especially blessed to have here on the parish campus an Adoration Chapel. What a graced opportunity to be able to come Monday through Saturday (refer to our Bulletin) and prayerfully rest in the Presence and company of Jesus mornings or afternoons. The Adoration Chapel is next to the statue of St. Theresa of the Child Jesus on the south west side entrance of our church.
We are proud of our Catholic Christian tradition here at St. Theresa's--proud of Catholic Education at our St. Theresa School (Pre-School through 8th Grade) since 1948; proud of our Religious Education and Sacramental Preparation Programs where classes are taught in both English and Spanish; proud also of our Adult Confirmation class; and, proud of our team approach in preparing potential catechumens and candidates as new Catholic Christians for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA).
Here at St. Theresa's we take seriously the need for the Gospel to be known, lived and proclaimed as well as its ongoing call to make new disciples in response to the Church's New Evangelization.
We hope that you will enjoy your visit and that you will find it both informative and enriching...
