St. Teresa of the Child Jesus

A Roman Catholic Faith Community

Message from Father Dave


Dear Parishioners,


I hope you are staying cool this summer! It is hard to imagine that we are already almost into August. While the summer time is usually quiet in the parish, this year has by quite the contrary.


Each week for the past month has been marked with events.


We had an amazing celebration for our pastor emeritus, Fr. Joe Paquette's 40th anniversary as a priest. I was humbled and honored for the outpouring of love and support for my 10th.


Al Papino was moved to tears as he said good bye and we sent him off with a reception, engraved clock and a wave of love.


This past week we welcomed Al Pannone to our parish family. We are truly blessed that God has placed him in our lives. Al sent me a message after the Masses and I would like to share the gist of his words with all of you.


He said he was touched and grateful for the warm reception that he received at St. Teresa's and that he felt welcomed into our parish family. He was impressed with the active participation of

the parish and enjoyed the fact that we like to sing along.


We really have an amazing parish and I am blessed to be a part of our community.


Al is experiencing why we are the best place to worship! We are looking forward to many more Masses and celebrations to come and with Al Pannone behind the piano, we will have great music to accompany good times.


Rev. Dave
