St. Teresa of the Child Jesus

A Roman Catholic Faith Community

Message from Father Dave


Dear Parishioners,


These are interesting times for us here at St. Teresa's and there are a few key points to discuss. With sadness we say good-bye to Al Papino, who is retiring on July 8. I would personally like to thank Al for his many years with us. His music has brought us closer to God by elevating our spirits. He is a kind person who lives out the Faith and it shows. We wish him the very best and look forward to gathering together on July 8 after the 10:30 Mass in the church hall.


While we say good-bye to Al, we say hello to Al. Al Panone, that is. He will begin his mission here at the parish the following weekend. Al Panone will be sure to realize why we are the best place to worship in the state of Rhode Island!


I wish Fr. Joe Paquette many more years of happiness and health as he begins his fifth decade of ministry in the Vineyard of the Lord! Fr. Joe is a good personal friend, a wonderful person and a great priest. The global church would be thriving if more were like him.


Last, but not least, our memorial brick garden is coming to completion! The blessing of the area will  take place on July 1 after the 10:30 Mass. The staff at St. Teresa's pulled a fast one on me by linking it with my 10 year anniversary as a priest. Half of that time has been here at St. Teresa's and all of that time has

been blessed.


Thank you all for your love and support!


Rev. Dave
