Welcome to the catholic parish of st teresa of lisieux

St Teresa's Church

 

 

I welcome you to our parish website.


After Christmas time we have now entered the Ordinary Time of the church’s year and you will notice the liturgical colour is green, the colour of hope and growth.

You might use the word “ordinary” to describe something dull or even rather boring, but ordinary actually derives from the Latin meaning regular and orderly. Hence Ordinary Time in the church’s year actually refers to the standard orderly counted time outside other liturgical seasons.

As Pope Benedict says Ordinary Time "does not mean that the commitment of Christians must diminish; quite the contrary, having entered divine life through the Sacraments, we are now called to remain open to the action of Grace in order to grow in love towards God and neighbour."
