Lenten Penance Service

We will have our Lenten Penance Service on Tuesday, April 4th at 7:00pm in the church building. Please feel free to come and feel the forgiveness of the Lord.

A helpful tool to help prepare for this service of grace and forgiveness is a printed Examination of Conscience guide to help us to know what sins we should confess. Here is a link to one such tool:  examination of conscience

Here are a couple of videos to help us remember the importance and the steps of going to Confession.

St. Theresa Parish Feast Day

October 4, 2015- Today we celebrated the feast day of our patroness St. Theresa of Lisieux with a trilingual mass in English, Spanish & Vietnamese. It was beautiful to hear the different languages being used to pray and sing as we worshipped our Lord. Although so many of us come from various parts of the country and of the world, we are all able to give our love, devotion and adoration to the One God who is in heaven.


Following the mass, in the midst of a light rain, we dedicated and blessed the pavilion and named it in honor of Mr. George Rischar, who was the master mind and lead foreman in the building of the structure. George has been a pillar in the parish and has served countless hours in the service of St. Theresa’s Church through the years. Although George has gone to eternal life (December 2014), his wife Arlis and some of his children were in attendance. He is greatly missed and may he rest in peace.
