About Us

IMG_0157

We are a warm, vibrant Roman Catholic Church located in Cordele, GA as part of the Diocese of Savannah. Our parish represents a rich diversity of cultural, ethnic and economic backgrounds. Though we are small, we are a friendly, welcoming community. We are dedicated to witnessing our faith through worship, education, evangelization and nurturing our faith family through parish life and Christian service. Our motto is that of our patroness, St. Theresa of Lisieux: “to do little things with great love.” We invite you to join us for Mass!

Our History

St. Theresa’s “Church of the Little Flower” has a varied and humble history. Her origins began at a time in history shorty after the time of the death of her patroness St. Therese of Lisieux, who had a great love for missionaries and the small missions that they served. While wanting to be a missionary herself, the cloistered Carmelite nun vowed that one day when she went to heaven, she would fly to the missions and assist them with her prayers. She wrote in her autobiography, “There will be no longer any cloister and grilles and my soul will be able to fly with you into distant lands.” Continue reading “Our History”

Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe

 

Our lady of guadalupe

DEC. 12 AT 6:00 PM-

This was the first time in recent years in which we celebrated the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe in the evening. In past years we celebrated an early morning Mass, which included the Mananitas (Mexican songs), beginning at 5:00 am, but this year’s celebration took place on a Friday night and the church was full. 2015-12-12 19.25.17

Along with the Mananitas, there was a special blessing for the numerous images and statues that occupied the foot of the altar, and then Mass concluded with the beginning of traditional Mexican dance that made its way from the church to the parking lot, where the dance continued for about 30 minutes.
