A 2014 Daily Prayer Walk with the Lord

Our next discussion in the parish hall takes place Wednesday, April 23 at 7:00 PM. As we begin Easter Season, our journey in Living Life as Sacred Story continues. We extended our reading and reflection of Week 6 through Easter and the week of April 27. Continue your prayer journey, letting Jesus Christ be your healer. If you are ready to embark on the Sacred Story journey, contact Mary Morrison, mkmorrsn@gmail.com, 253-318-0852.


Each week parishioners share their tips and encouragement. Also, learn more about Living Life as Sacred Story.



St. Theresa Parish is proud to host the Catholicism program, which will help parishioners deepen their faith. Experience the journey as a personal pilgrimage or with other members of your faith community (especially with our RCIA group).


With creator and host Fr. Robert Barron, you will learn what Catholics believe and why, while being immersed in the art, architecture, literature, beliefs, and practices of the Catholic tradition. Filmed in 50 locations throughout 15 countries, the CATHOLICISM DVD series is on-location and in the streets illustrating the splendor of the global church.
