Our Spiritual Home: No Place Like St Teresa Parish

by Mary, Dave & Ania Wisneski

We’ve called St. Teresa of Avila Parish our “spiritual home” ever since we moved into the neighborhood nearly 20 years ago. As new neighborhood residents, we “sampled” the neighboring parishes, but always found ourselves returning to St. Teresa of Avila. Why? The parish had that special feeling…one of peace, acceptance, and welcoming parishioners, all complemented by an intimate church layout. It’s a parish that felt just right, and it still does today. Since then, our daughter was baptized here, made her First Holy Communion here, and will be confirmed here. There is no other place like St. Teresa of Avila Parish. We are proud to call this our “spiritual home”.
