Welcome to the Saint Theresa of Avila Parish

We are a Roman Catholic Parish of the Archdiocese of Boston.

Pastor's Greeting

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to our parish home page. Saint Theresa Parish is willing and able to use the tools of technology to reach parishioners, visitors, and anyone just curious about our parish and the Catholic Church. We are proud of our parish.  Our web page contains information about what the parish is doing to bring parishioners of all ages closer to the Lord and the Catholic Church.

The Pastoral Staff at Saint Theresa's is dedicated to serving our parish community: young, old, and in-between, large families, small families and households of one. Our liturgies, programs, and services help make Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, an integral part of our lives.

We cordially invite you to visit us - here in cyberspace or in person. Our beautiful church is a gem of Gothic architecture, our liturgies are celebrated with grace and reverence, our parish choir enhances our worship each Sunday at our 10:30 Mass, September through June. To those Catholics who live here in West Roxbury but have not been with us at Mass, I extend a very special invitation to join us on Sunday. What happens here at Mass each Sunday, each day, gives each of us the strength and support we need to get through our week. The love and grace of the Lord is boundless! Come and see for yourself.

With the assurances of a prayerful remembrance for you and all those you hold dear, I am

Sincerely in Christ,
Reverend Monsignor William M. Helmick
Pastor
