July 2, 2021: Bulletin & Announcements

Dear Saint Teresa Parishioners,

Happy birthday to America! Let’s all enjoy a safe quiet Independence Day weekend, full of freedom, gratitude, family time, and celebrations.

Please be mindful of Eucharistic Exposition—there will not be Exposition on Sunday the 4th, but a new session begins the 5th, and we really need more people to come be present with the Lord for an hour. Matthew 26:40

May God bless you always!
