St. Theresa of the Child Jesus

Honoring our Past, Building our Future

Our parish community has grown considerably over the past decade.  Even adding an additional Sunday Evening Mass was not enough to relieve the crowding during other Mass times.  The Parish Council recommended, and Father Jim accepted, that we expand the church to provide more seating.  Bishop Baker signed the paperwork for the expansion in the fall of 2010.

The picture below shows how the church has changed through the construction process that started immediately after Christmas and was completed by Easter.  The expansion has given us an 80% increase in seating from approximately 120 to 213 seats. 

Other noteworthy items: New Altar and Tabernacle, expansion and remodeling of the restrooms, new sound system, new fire alarm and security system, added insulation, new shingles, improved heating and air conditioning, new carpeting for the entire church, new wood flooring for the sanctuary, expanded sacristy, new padding and fabric for seating and kneelers, new kitchen appliances and flooring, complete repainting, new landscaping, and so much more to make our church a beautiful place to worship!

The Expansion of the Church was formally blessed by Bishop Robert J. Baker on the Feast of St. Therese of Lisieux, October 1, 2011.  Click for the Mass Program.... and Click for pictures of the Mass and Reception.
