Welcome to St. Teresa of Calcutta! It is quite an undertaking to keep up-to-date records of our parish membership. If you do not receive monthly mail from the parish, it is an indication that we do not have you registered. If this is the case, please stop by to see the Sunday Receptionist before or after Mass in the Parish Office in the Administration wing of the Church. You may also take home a registration form found in the information rack in the Parish Office hallway. Return the form via dropping it off to the Parish Office Monday-Friday 8:30-4:00pm, return it to the Sunday Receptionist or place it in the collection. We look forward to seeing you!
Please join us every Wednesday night, at 7:00 PM in our Chapel, for the Rosary, Evening Prayer and Benediction.

"To pray is to allow God to come alive in us."...... Mother Teresa
