Do you have a heart for God?

It may seem a funny question to ask people who faithfully gather each week to break bread together in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The question is really: does your heart for God lead you to use the gifts God has given you to serve others?


St. Theresa’s invites you to discover how the many gifts you’ve received can be shared with others as a way to outwardly express your heart for God.

What: Have a Heart for God Ministry Expo
When: February 14-15, after all the Masses
Where: Parish Hall
Who: All parishioners
Why: To express your love of God in actions that share your gifts!

Time, Talent & Treasure

As we begin our annual stewardship campaign, please prayerfully consider what your gift of treasure should be. Stewardship isn't just about how much money we give or how we volunteer in ministry to support our parish. It is about the way we live our lives in every way.
Read more on our Stewardship page.



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.
