"Nothing is small in the eyes of God. Do all that you do in love."-St. Theresa of Liseux



St. Theresa Parish Religious Education Program is established to provide opportunities for faith enrichment and spiritual formation for all ages, ethnic and cultural groups. We recognize that faith formation begins in the home  and is an ongoing and lifelong process.

Guided by the Holy Spirit, we endeavor to facilitate the faith formation process for parish families. Catechists and staff of St. Theresa Church strive to bring God's message of love and mercy to all members of our community.


Our goal is to assist the faithful in their LIFELONG journey by:


-passing on the teachings and traditions of the church.


-increasing and encouraging full participation in and and understanding the liturgy


-providing activities that help to build and support households of faith so that all members of the community are supported in their own faith formation
