Fr. Jim Cunningham, Pastor
“I am very proud and deeply overjoyed to be your pastor. You, my dear parishioners at St. Teresa Parish, give me so much more in so many ways than I am ever able to give you in return.
However, I attempt to always keep the following epigram foremost in my mind and heart as I pastor all of my dear flock each day through the various liturgical and / or yearly seasons that make up the 365 days we enjoy from one Advent season to the next:
‘The priest who is powerful is feared. The priest who is learned is admired. The priest who speaks well is listened to. But only the priest who is steeped in great charity is loved.'”
COVID-19 Update (6/15/21)
Following new guidance from the Diocese and state authorities, masks are now optional at Mass and parish events. Each individual may decide for themselves if they choose to wear a mask. Members of different households are asked to maintain some spatial distance from each other. Also it is asked that those in the congregation who wish to sing wear a mask while singing. As always, we must be considerate in all our choices of the health and needs of others around us.
Also, as of June 5th, the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation has been reinstated in our Diocese. As always, those who are ill, infirm, or at greater risk are encouraged to remain at home and join via livestream.
