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.

 

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. That includes: There will be NO Fall Festival (carnival) this year.
  • There will be NO Volunteer Appreciation Dinner this October.
  • 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 viruslessens 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!

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

    All Day
    Angels are servants and messengers from God. "Angel" in Greek means messenger. In unseen ways the angels help us on our earthly pilgrimage by assisting us in work and study, helping us in temptation and protecting us from physical danger. 
     
    Each person on earth has a guardian angel who watches over him and helps him to attain his salvation. It has been a common theological opinion that this angelical guardianship begins at the moment of birth; prior to this, the child would be protected by the mother's guardian angel. But this is not certain, and since we now know that the soul is infused at the moment of conception, it may be that the angelic guardianship also begins at that moment. 
     
    In any case, this protection continues throughout our whole life and ceases only when our probation on earth ends, namely, at the moment of death. Our guardian angel accompanies our soul to purgatory or heaven, and becomes our coheir in the heavenly kingdom.
     
    "See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven always look upon the face of my heavenly Father"
     
    "Beside each believer stands an angel as protector and shepherd leading him to life" 
     
    Angel of God, my Guardian dear, to whom His love commits me here, ever this day (or night) be at my side, to light and guard, to rule and guide. Amen.
