The ECC is holding its holy synod this month, October 12th through the 14th. Please pray for our communion.
Our host church, Shadow Rock, has suspended all services and events at their campus. As a result, St. Teresa has been unable to hold Mass at our usual venue.
Instead, we are gathering via Zoom for liturgy each Sunday at 9:00 a.m. Use the link below to join us this Sunday:

Please join us for weekly Mass:

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.
