Parish Guild *WHAT WE DO



The mission of Parish Guild is to assist St. Thérèse and its blessed parishioners through events that strengthen the spirit, faith, and love within our community. 

We invite you to join the Guild and help us in our mission to:

Serve the St. Thérèse Community

The Guild is a great place to meet fellow parishioners and develop new friendships.

Facilitate Charity and Fundraising Events

Organize and Support Seasonal Activities

Lenten Dinners

Organize Christmas Outreach

At Christmas time, come make a difference in the life of a child, or military family through Angel Tree. Share your good fortune, your happiness, and God’s graces with charities represented on our Angel Trees!


We help with receptions for church and diocesan programs.

We organize a "Mothers and Others" Tea Party for Mother's Day.

We gather our community over coffee and donuts to help us raise funds following the 9 a.m. Mass (covid restrictions permitting).

Outreach / Faith in Action 

Through various activities including spiritual retreats, we help fellow parishioners in small ways that can make a BIG difference. 

Facilitate Charity and Fundraising Events

Camp Elliott 

Organize food, clothing, diapers, and welcome packages at Camp Elliott.

Additional Charities we support:

Catholic Charities Refugee Services, Gently Hugged, Warrior Foundation Freedom Station, San Diego MOM (Ministry Outreach for Military Families), Catholic Charities, La Posada, as well as other parishes that are in need.

Scrip Fundraising Project

Sign up with Ralphs (Supporter ID: 80782) to make sure a percentage of your regular grocery shopping goes towards our parish Building Fund. IMPORTANT NOTE:  Over the past ten years, St. Therese has earned $250,000 through the eScrip program going toward building and furnishing the church and Parish Center. We hope that you will continue to participate in the eScrip program, noting the change.
