St. Therese of Carmel Catholic Church is an inclusive, welcoming, and faith-filled community
that strives to empower all people to know personally, and then share with the world the love of God.

Guided by the example of our patroness, St. Therese of Liseux,
we seek to do even the smallest things well
in order to have the BIGGEST impact possible for the Glory of God.

Our Parish has encouraged, empowered, and equipped its parishioners and volunteers with all they need
to go out into the local and larger communities to meet the needs of others, graciously and enthusiastically.  

For over 30 years, we have effectively built and created partnerships that support a diverse collection of individuals and groups
by meeting them where they are and giving them what they need to not just survive, but to truly thrive.
