Sharing Sunday is our annual gift distribution for needy families in our parish. Each year we provide children ages 17 and under with Christmas gifts. This year the tree will go up on November 18th and will be up through December 4th. Sharing Sunday will be December 3rd and 4th.
Please bring your unwrapped gift to Mass that weekend with the purple tag attached. That same weekend, we will need volunteers to assist in moving the gifts from the church to the Family Life Center after each Mass.
For those needing assistance, please stop by and register at the St. Vincent de Paul office. This program is for families that are in need of assistance and are registered parishioners of St. Theresa. Gifts will only be provided for children ages 17 and under. Gift Distribution will be held on Monday, December 5th and Tuesday, December 6th from 9:00 am- 6:00 pm.
There is a need for chairpersons to represent our 2017 bazaar, which will take place in May of 2017. Please consider joining the bazaar committee in this enjoyable community event. For more information, please contact the parish office. 281-494-1156.
Our Food Pantry is especially low this month. We are in need of cooking oil, flour, sugar, canned vegetables, peanut butter, canned soups, cereals, oatmeal, tuna, ham/spam, dried and canned beans, canned sauces and other non-perishable items.
As you know, needy families and individuals in our community go without proper food, shelter, and essential medical care every day due to a variety of factors including low wages, job loss, injuries, illness, age, domestic violence, or divorce. While all of us are susceptible to hard times, children and the elderly are at the most risk, and they make up the largest number of clients we serve.
We thank you for your continued support and generosity. God Bless you!
The St. Vincent de Paul office will be closed Monday, September 5th in observance of the Labor Day Holiday.
Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration is the adoration of Jesus Christ present in the Holy Eucharist. The Eucharist is exposed in a special holder called a monstrance. People are invited to pray and worship Jesus in silence.
Our Emmaus chapel is located behind the Community Center and is open 24 hours a day all year long. Every hour of every day someone is praying for you and our parish.
Can you give Jesus an hour of your day? As Jesus himself asked his apostles: “can you not stay awake even one hour with me?”
Please consider signing up for an hour of adoration. Below are some hours in great need of adorers:
Monday – 4am, 12noon, 1pm
Tuesday – 1am, 6am, 12noon, 11pm

To better understand Jesus is to better understand yourself!
Join us for six weekly sessions, beginning Wednesday, October 21 and continuing every Wednesday in the library at 7pm. This study program from Bishop Robert Barron’s Word on Fire will provide a deep, Biblical look at Jesus Christ:
The better we understand Jesus, the better we understand ourselves. But who was Jesus, this itinerant preacher whom many called the Messiah?
In Priest, Prophet, King, you’ll discover Jesus as the Anointed One–the ultimate priest, prophet, and king foreshadowed throughout the Hebrew Scriptures. Using biblical insights and engaging stories, Bishop Barron affirms that we see Jesus most clearly through the lens of the Old Testament.
Through this deeply biblical program, you will better understand Jesus, become more familiar with Scripture, and realize your own priestly, prophetic, and kingly mission, received when you are baptized “into Christ.”
Contact the parish office for more information about registration. The program is $25, which includes the cost of the workbook.
Are you thriving or just surviving? Are you ready for more energy? A deeper sense of purpose? More joy? A clearer understanding of God’s plan for your life?
Join us for a series of 6 classes exploring Matthew Kelly’s Living Every Day with Passion & Purpose program – a self-help program with a Catholic outlook. Sessions will meet Mondays at 7pm in the library, starting October 19. Each class will include a video presentation followed by private reflection using the course workbook and minimal discussion. Please contact the parish office for more information about registration.
