We might be familiar with different aspects of the Catholic faith. But how does it all fit together? And what difference does it make for our lives?  "Symbolon: The Catholic Faith Explained" opens up the “big picture” of the Catholic faith in a way that helps us know it, live it and articulate it to others. 


Symbolon is open to all interested in learning more about the Catholic faith. Join us.

At St. Theresa Parish Hall

On the first Wednesday of every month.

Mass starts at 6:00 PM, with the presentation beginning at 7. We will be finished no later than 8:20 PM. 

For more on Symbolon, session dates, and the agenda for each session, open the flyer.


No need to sign up but if you have questions, please send an email to micie.delosreyes@sttheresafw.org or contact Micie DelosReyes at 253-838-5924 ext. 304.



A 2014 Daily Prayer Walk with the Lord


Meeting Note - We will not meet on Wednesday, November 26, the day before Thanksgiving. Our prayer journey participants will meet only one more time at the church--on Wednesday, December 3. 


Week 37 presents the third of the three strategies used by the enemy of our human nature. These discernment lessons are not about condemnation (of others or ourselves!) – but about waking up to the ways we can be manipulated. Let us keep our focus on Christ, for whom all things are possible!. Learn more about Living Life as Sacred Story.
