Our office building recently received some much needed attention from some hardworking ladies,

Sue Dupuis, Pamela Gyan and Michele Orosz worked tirelessly in the courtyard, completely transforming it into a beautiful space for prayer and relaxation.  We are so blessed to have these ladies donate their time and talents to making this an area that all can enjoy.

We are so grateful to Louise and Harry French for donating the beautiful statue of the Blessed Mother.  It is a lovely addition to our office courtyard and we really appreciate it.

Events Calendar






Please welcome to the Eucharistic table our young parishioners who receive First Eucharist during the month of June.  Each week these children will now receive Jesus' body(and hopefully soon, His Blood) . 

Congratulations and welcome to the Lord's Banquet Table!


Demos la, bienvenidos a la mesa eucaristica nuestros jovenes feligreses que recibieron la Primera Eucaristia durante el mes de junio. Cada semana estos ninos ahora recibiran el cuerpo de Jesus (y esperemos que pronto, Su sangre). Felicitacones y bienvenidos a la mesa del banquete del Senor!









Each year I stand in awe as our church receives new members into its fold through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA).  This year St. Theresa welcomed 18 new members into our flock:  Carlos Valdes, Yadira Lizardi, Felipe Gonzalez,

Yusmila Arocha, Kerry Cambre, Darina Espinoza,

Zuriel Espinoza, Rocio Ramirez,

Andrew Morales, Wenceslao Suero, Luis Espinoza, Brenda Gonzalez, Karla Lopez, Pedro Ramirez,

Vicenta Rodriguez, Victoria Rodriguez, and Griselda Olvera., and Jose Nava.


As I stood at the Easter vigil mass (April 3, 2021) as well as at the Confirmation mass (April 18, 2021) and listened to the words of the sacraments as they were performed, I felt proud of the decision that each of you made to become a part of our faith community.  It was not a decision made by someone else but made by each of you.  Whatever the storms of life you have endured to this day, you have now made the decision to be a part of the Catholic Church.  With your sponsors/godparents, our team members, Fr. Eric Gyan and Fr. Kevin Zubel, each of you came here openly and excited to enter our church as we are proud of you.  Each of you remind those of us who are cradle Catholics of how blessed we are to be a Catholic Christian and to call St. Theresa of Avila our home. 

May God Bless each of you this Easter season

Alice Blair and Angela Tovar

Are you or someone you know interested in becoming Catholic?

The RCIA Program is a faith formation process by which adults become full members of the Catholic community.

People who feel called to the Catholic community are enabled to deepen their faith while at the same time learning the

traditions of the Catholic Church. While education is an important component, it is primarily a formation process.

This is an opportunity to come together with a community of adults to grow in faith, and prayerfully consider God's timing in discerning decisions to become Catholic or receive Sacraments. Sessions are held on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8:00 p.m.

If you would like more information or would like to begin discerning the Catholic faith contact Alice Blair, Director of Christian Formation, (225) 647-6588 or [email protected]





¿Está usted o alguien que conoce interesado en ser católico?


El Programa RICA es un proceso de formación de fe por el cual los adultos se convierten en miembros de pleno derecho de la comunidad católica. Las personas que se sienten llamadas a la comunidad católica pueden profundizar su fe al mismo tiempo que aprenden las tradiciones de la Iglesia católica. Si bien la educación es un componente importante, es principalmente un proceso de formación. Esta es una oportunidad para reunirse con una comunidad de adultos para crecer en la fe y considerar en oración el momento de Dios para discernir las decisiones de convertirse en católicos o recibir sacramentos. Las sesiones se llevan a cabo los martes por la noche de 6:30 a 8:00 p.m. en ingles o espanol los domingos de 11:30-1:00pm.


Si desea obtener más información o desea comenzar a discernir la fe católica, comuníquese con
