News & Events
PARISHIONERS, Please take notice of the kneeler placed by the St. Theresa statue in the back of the Church. The kneeler is there for anyone who would like to stop and say a prayer for Brian Norris, our visiting Seminarian. St. Theresa is a favorite Saint of Brian’s. There is also a journal located by the kneeler for you to write a note of encouragement to Brian as he continues his studies to become a priest. Brian stated “if I am having a bad day, I can look at the journal and read the notes to brighten my day.”
