Welcome to St. Teresa of Avila

Saint Teresa's Church has been in existence in Titusville Florida since 1958. We have over 1800 families in our faith-filled community and is located on the Space Coast, directly across from Kennedy Space Center. We are a unique multi-ethnic and multi-age congregation. This uniqueness has created a vibrant, supportive and involved parish community.

 

Saint Teresa's is an active parish with many different ministries, please visit the ministries page or call 321-268-3441 for more information. Please join us and spread the works of our Lord.

 

November

The month of November is dedicated to the Souls in Purgatory, whose feast is celebrated on November 2. With the exception of the last two days, the entire month of November falls during the liturgical season known as Ordinary Time, which is represented by the liturgical color green. This symbol of hope is the color of the sprouting seed and arouses in the faithful the hope of reaping the eternal harvest of heaven, especially the hope of a glorious resurrection. It is used in the offices and Masses of Ordinary Time. The last portion of the liturgical year represents the time of our pilgrimage to heaven during which we hope for reward. The last Sunday, which marks the beginning of Advent, the liturgical color changes to purple, representing a time of penance.

Catching up During Covid

Since many parishioners have recently returned to Mass and with all the safety precautions we are taking, some may not have seen the Bulletin , where it is available on-line on the St. Teresa
website. So to catch up:
  • The Bishop has asked that we please wear a mask in church, Many volunteers are cleaning the pews after Mass as an extra step for your safety.
  • Due to Covid, many programs are on-hold or canceled right now.
  • Will still look forward to a farewell celebration for Anna Mae Smoller, the church Office Receptionist after her many years of service with a smile. We thank her for all the assistance she has been to parishioners over those 25 years. She takes a lot of memories about the parish with her. Once we are able to officially join together again, we will have a gathering in her honor. (we did acknowledge her in the May 24th bulletin, but know that many missed it on-line.
  • The decision for the School Christmas Pageant is still on hold.
As restrictions are lifted, we will notify parishioners of any upcoming events. We can only pray that the threat of this virus lessens over time. Please remember, the Bulletin and other items of interest can always be found on the St Teresa website.

Needing Your Help

We are in need of volunteers to help disinfect the pews after each Mass on Sunday. Your support is needed to keep our community safe. We are in need of many hands to make the work light for all. If you are willing to help in this ministry please contact Sr. Yvonne at the church office - 321-268-3441,

Thank you for your time and support!

Advent Giving Project

On the evergreen trees on either side of the doors in the Narthex are tags with sex and ages of children from 3 months to teen years. Please take a tag or two and purchase a toy for the children that come to our Food Pantry.

 

Do NOT wrap the gifts, but attach the tag to it and put it in the wagon by the Chapel. Parents of children who come to our Food Pantry will come and “shop” for a gift for each of their children.

 

Thank you for your generosity in meeting the needs of our brothers and sisters who are less fortunate.

Hurricane Protection Prayer

God, our Father,

Eternal and Omnipotent, Creator and Lord of the Universe, you have set the earth on its foundation and all elements of nature obey your command. You give food to all flesh, cover the heavens with clouds, and provide rain to the earth ─

We humbly beseech you Lord, Most High, to keep us safe from all dangers and to calm all the storms of life that threaten us: especially the attack of whirlwinds and tornadoes, the calamity and destruction of hurricanes, the din and damage of hail storms, the striking of thunderbolts and lightning, and the devastation of floods and tidal waves.

May we be secure in your loving protection, seek your Will in all our experiences, and serve you always with grateful hearts. We ask this through our Lord, Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Amen.

 

We ask Jesus to watch over us through the summer, to keep us safe from harm, shelter us from storms and make all travel safe no matter whether it be around home or on a trip for vacation

    The tradition here at St. Teresa is for parishioners to bring baked goods (homemade bread, rolls, cakes, etc.) to share with the shut-ins, sick, and needy of our community. Let us help those who are not as fortunate as we are. These baked goods can be placed on the steps of the sanctuary for a special blessing before they are distributed.

    Our parish has a very successful food pantry. Many people come to us for food; in fact, the number of people has increased this year. Also, this need increases at holiday time. We ask people to bring canned goods, dry food stuffs, cereal, pasta, rice, etc. to Mass and place them in the baskets provided in the foyer of the Church. Some of these items will be presented at the Presentation of the Gifts. Thank you for your generosity.

    Finally, if you wish, you can bring some item of food that you will be serving during your Thanksgiving Dinner for a special blessing of food and for a prayer of Thanksgiving.

    Let us make this day a day of celebration and thanksgiving to God for the many wonderful and gracious gifts he has given to us. We do have much to be thankful for…
