Mission Statement:

We are a community of evangelizing disciples being transformed by the Gospel in order to transform our parish, our neighborhood and our world.

We will do this by cultivating faith formation, participating in spirit-filled worship, fostering stewardship, and reaching out in the name of Jesus to those in need.

Vision Statement:

St. Therese Little Flower Parish is the sacramental presence of Jesus . . . the mind and heart, the hands and feet, the words and deeds . . . the incarnate and living Body of Christ for our own place and time.

Easter 2016

THANK YOU to all of the Liturgical ministers whose presence added to the joyful celebration of Easter.

THANKS ALSO to all of you who grace our parish weekly and provide spiritual and financial support. We are a truly blessed community of faith.
As we gather to celebrate the victory of our Risen Lord and go forth to continue to witness this victory with family and friends, may we truly be the living Body of Christ for each other.

Year of Mercy

On December 8, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, Pope Francis officially proclaimed the opening of the “Year of Mercy”. The logo and the motto together provide a fitting summary of what the Jubilee Year is all about. The motto Merciful Like the Father (taken from the Gospel of Luke, 6:36) serves as an invitation to follow the merciful example of the Father who asks us not to judge or condemn but to forgive and to give love and forgiveness without measure (cfr. Lk 6:37-38). 

   The logo – the work of Jesuit Father Marko I. Rupnik – presents a small summa theologiae of the theme of mercy. In fact, it represents an image quite important to the early Church: that of the Son having taken upon his shoulders the lost soul demonstrating that it is the love of Christ that brings to completion the mystery of his incarnation culminating in redemption. The logo has been designed in such a way so as to express the profound way in which the Good Shepherd touches the flesh of humanity and does so with a love with the power to change one’s life. One particular feature worthy of note is that while the Good Shepherd, in his great mercy, takes humanity upon himself, his eyes are merged with those of man. Christ sees with the eyes of Adam, and Adam with the eyes of Christ. Every person discovers in Christ, the new Adam, one’s own humanity and the future that lies ahead, contemplating, in his gaze, the love of the Father.
  The scene is captured within the so called mandorla (the shape of an almond), a figure quite important in early and medieval iconography, for it calls to mind the two natures of Christ, divine and human. The three concentric ovals, with colors progressively lighter as we move outward, suggest the movement of Christ who carries humanity out of the night of sin and death. Conversely, the depth of the darker color suggests the impenetrability of the love of the Father who forgives all.
