Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

We are told in this week’s gospel about a disciple’s purpose:  to preach and to heal. You may think that you don’t do well speaking in groups of people, and healing…well how can I do that?  Preaching doesn’t always require using a lot of words; sometimes, it’s the way we interact with others, the compassion we show, that says it all. And while we may not be able individually to cure cancer, we heal when we are fully present to the person who needs healing. Sometimes all a person needs to be healed is to know that someone cares enough to listen.


Join us at our Saturday mass, at 4:30 p.m., in the Chapel located in the Education Building or on Zoom. The passcode to enter is: liturgy.  Please mute yourselves upon entering.  This week’s worship aid is found here:

The contact name is St. Teresa of Avila Ecumenical Catholic Church and the mobile token (must be correct as Zelle does not reimburse if you send it to the wrong place) is (602) 509-4446.  You will get an email afterward from your bank noting the transfer.



St. Teresa of Ávila is united with many other authentic Catholic faith communities as a member of the Ecumenical Catholic Communion (ECC).  The ECC is a "community of communities" that share a common theology and liturgical tradition with the Roman Catholic Church, but do not participate in its canon law.

The "ECC Difference" can be seen in the inclusion of all baptized Christians at the Eucharistic table, respect for and recognition that the Spirit is at work in those of other religions, ordination of women and married individuals, offering of the sacrament of marriage to committed LGBT couples and those remarrying after divorce, invitation to follow conscience regarding birth control, and active/equal involvement of the laity in the governance of the Communion.
