Jubilee Mass at 3 PM and Dinner at 5 PM | Sunday, October 15, 2017
Bishop David Zubik celebrated a 3 PM Mass at St. Teresa of Avila Church, followed by dinner and festivities at The Great Hall on Perry Highway. The Great Hall was the site of the second St. Teresa of Avila Church until 1983. The hall retains much of the stunning architecture and served as a beautiful backdrop for our observance.

Jubilee Heritage Week  |  April 22-29, 2017
Jubilee Heritage Week was a huge success as we celebrated the rich heritage of St. Teresa of Avila Parish looking back on 150 years of faith! Many parish artifacts and archives were on display throughout Schoppol Hall all week. Guests had the chance to see rarely seen photographs, religious items, and sacred objects from our church (past and present), school, and convent buildings, including the contents
from inside the old church cornerstone, personal items from former pastors, and much more!

St. Teresa Parish Family Picnic  |  June 11, 2017
More than 350 parishioners came together to enjoy great food, drinks, music, and games at the annual Parish Picnic! The picnic was held at the Mayernik Center and Pavilion in Avonworth
park immediately following the noon Mass, celebrated by Bishop Tobin, a proud son of St. Teresa. A wonderful time was had by all!
