Join us after Mass on February 28th and March 6th for a light breakfast and time to reflect on Pope Francis’s Encyclical, “Laudato Si”. We will look at how climate change is affecting the world around us, study the social injustices directly related to the pollution of our environment, and we will consider how we can accept the challenge which Pope Francis has given us, as Catholics.
Guest presenters are Michael Arney on February 28th, and Cheryl Nenn on March 6th.
Both presentations begin after Mass at 10:15am in Heck Hall. See you there!
Join us on March 2nd, at 2:00pm in Heck Hall for “The Return of the Big Show.” Enjoy a late winter’s Sunday afternoon of entertainment and fun, as members of St. Therese and their friends share their talents in story telling, music and comedy. Admission is a dessert or snack to share. See you there!
Singing God’s praises takes on new meaning when you sing in a church choir. Luckily, St. Therese Parish has two choirs which are accepting new members: The Saint Therese Sunday Choir, which rehearses on Wednesdays at 7:30pm starting September 4th, and the Canticle Choir, which rehearses the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 3:00pm starting September 10th. The Saint Therese Sunday Choir sings at the 9:00am Mass on three Sundays per month. The Canticle Choir sings at the funeral liturgies and one Saturday 5:00pm Mass per month.
Why not give it a try? Both groups are made up of caring people who love to sing, and who would love to have you join them.
Call Elterine (Dusty) at the parish office at 414-771-2500 X15, or email her at: firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
