Second Sunday of Lent

Today we hear Mark’s depiction of the
Transfiguration, and in it we hear God say to the
witnesses: ”This is my beloved Son. Listen to him.”
We are also God’s beloved; we are the Beloved
Community – all of us – when we take to heart the
teachings of Jesus. If we are to truly act as the
Beloved Community, we must willingly and lovingly
journey with others, no matter their race, faith
tradition, gender, age, or sexual orientation.


Join us at St. Teresa’s for mass: Saturday at 4:30
p.m., or Zoom to enter. We have moved back to
using a passcode: liturgy. This makes it possible to
get back into the room if your internet fails.

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.
