Welcome to St. Teresa of Avila Good works are links that form a chain of love



St Teresa's Saturday Mass is at 5:00 PM. Our Sunday Mass is at 9:00 AM.
Our twin parish, St Boniface Church - Maryhill, has Sunday Mass at 11:00 AM. Fr Peter serves as the pastor for both churches!

Come and join us if you are able. For those still not comfortable joining us, we recommend watching Mass on Salt and Light Television.
We hope you'll consider joining us soon! We miss you all!


In order to keep up with the church's monthly maintenance, please consider electronic giving as a safe, consistent way to give. If you would like to start giving electronically, please see instructions on the Building and Finance Committee page.

Give the gift of life - be an organ donor!

To view a short video, click here.

My Gift of 8 campaign was inspired by Fr Dave. Gift of 8 means you can save up to 8 lives as an organ donor and up to 75 lives as tissue donor as well. Please click here and you can view frequently asked questions under About Donation and then click on the button Register or Check now. You can check if you are registered and if not, to register to give the gift of life. It only takes 2 minutes and all you need is your health card and DOB. Our good friend Fr Dave would not be here if it wasn't for the donor who made the decision to donate and gave Fr Dave a second chance.

Don't take your organs to Heaven, Heaven knows we need them here.
