Who we are

Welcome to St. Teresa of Avila

Good works are links that form a chain of love

Christ has no body now but yours, no hands, no feet on earth, but yours. Yours are the eyes through which he moves compassion on this world. Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good. Yours are the hands with which he blesses all the world.

-Prayer of St. Teresa of Avila

Special welcome to all visitors!

History of St. Teresa of Avila Church Elmira ON

Established on the Second Sunday of Easter, 1851.

In 2001 St. Teresa Parish celebrated 150 years as a Parish community. It began as a small country Parish in North Woolwich in 1851, moved to a larger church on Water Street in Elmira in 1889, purchased a rectory, and was able to have a resident Priest by 1924. Always an active community, St. Teresa Parish in the 1930's and 1940's not only held religious services, pious societies and offered religious education for children, it also hosted social and athletic activities, such as the Garden Parties, bingo, Holy Name Hockey, and boxing matches in the church basement. The 1950's and 1960's saw the beginning of the Catholic Women's League and the Holy Name Society for men. The changes brought by the Second Vatican Council were experienced throughout the 1970's and 1980's, as the community participated in RENEW and lay people assumed new liturgical roles. In 1992 the Parish moved its place of worship. The beautiful, modern church of St. Teresa on Flamingo Drive accomodates up to 490 people when the folding wall connecting the library is open. The decision to build a new church was difficult, and fraught with heartache. Many families felt they were abandoning a "home" their forebears had sacrificed to achieve. Nevertheless, through prayer, hard work, and cooperation, the new building has become home to the living faith community that is St. Teresa Parish today.   Edit

The power of Christian prayer May your light illuminate our hearts
Eternal God, this holy night is radiant with the brilliance of your one true light. May that light illuminate our hearts and shine in our words and deeds. May the hope, the peace, the joy, and the love represented by the birth in Bethlehem this night fill our lives and become part of all that we say and do. May we share the divine life of your son Jesus Christ, even as he humbled himself to share our humanity. Amen.
