About Us

Our mission is to educate, form and transform persons into disciples of Christ and to foster responsible participation in the life, work and mission of the church.


We are also a resource to parish families in the faith formation of their children and to provide them with opportunities to grow in faith, live the Gospel message and witness to Jesus Christ.


St. Teresa of Avila is dedicated to making your experience of church the best it can be.  Jesus Christ must be the center of all we do.
