Religious Education

Our Mission

To educate, form and transform persons into disciples of Christ and to foster responsible participation in the life, work and mission of the Church.


We are also a resource to parish families in the faith formation of their children and to provide them with opportunities to grow in faith, live the Gospel message and witness to Jesus Christ.


St. Teresa of Avila is dedicated to making your experience of church the best it can be.  Jesus Christ must be the center of all we do.


The Program 

Grades 1 and 2

are a traditional classroom model for catechesis. Children attend a weekly class where they are instructed by catechists who are either a parent or other adults (primarily from our parish) who are interested in sharing their faith with the children of our parish. Religious Education classes are offered multiple times during the week, with class times of 1 hour and 15 minutes. Program specifics here
