Last week we heard about Jesus commissioning his followers to go out into all the world and to baptize in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Today, we learn more about how that Spirit came upon the gathered and made it possible for them to follow Jesus’s commission, and how it comes to us today.
Join us at St. Teresa’s for mass: Saturdays at 4:30 p.m., either in person or on Zoom. Zoom link – the passcode is StTAvila. The worship aid for May 27, is here. We will no longer share it on screen, so please print it or have it available on your phone.

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.
