    • Please Use Caution When Entering Church Grounds

      Please use caution when entering the parking lots.  The map above indicates where the fencing is and also the entrance points to the church building for the next several months.  The red lines on the map are the fence.  The green lines indicate the entrances to the main church. 

      If you park in the back lot (close to the PLC or the little playground), you will have to enter the church building through the family room double doors, or the single door near the playground.  From the parking area you will have to use the new ramp by the dumpsters.  If you park in the front lot, you can use the sidewalk by the fencing to get to the main entrance, or you can go up the stairs to get to the PLC or Family Room entrance.  NO DOORS ARE CLOSED to the church building, only one sidewalk is closed (the one by the butterfly garden.
       
      Handicap accessibility is only available from the entrances near the playground area. The speed limit in the parking lot is 5mph. 

      Thank you for your patience as we enter this exciting new phase of church construction!  Click here to view photos of our new church construction!

           Take a DEEP BREATH. Notice how your whole body relaxes.  Now take another deep breath.  This time, notice that the air coming into your lungs through your nose is free and plentiful:  even if you’re in a large crowd, there’s more than enough for everyone.
            Finally, another deep breath.  The atoms of air that you breathe in and out are a shared gift:  shared both with other humans and with the creatures and plants in the immediate area.  This air constitutes a radical physical connectedness with all other living beings.  Statistically, it is extremely likely that several of the atoms you took into your lungs during that last breath also passed through Jesus’ lungs:  a direct and potentially profound physical connection.
           Because of our intricate interconnectedness with each other in and through the natural world, what has been called environmentalism - concern for that which is around  us - becomes ecological awareness.  The word ‘ecology’ comes from two Greek roots:  oikos, meaning ‘house’, and logos, meaning ‘reason’ or ‘discourse’.  When we shift from speaking of the environment (that which is around us but does not include us) to speaking of ecology, then, we are thinking in a new way:  not about a distanced object, but rather about the network of relationships within which we live:  our own house, our home.


      Ecology and the Spiritual Exercises by Trileigh Tucker

    • Welcome to St. Therese Catholic Church

      St. Therese is a rapidly growing, multicultural, Catholic family located in the Lake Norman area, invigorated by a Jesuit spirituality.

      Our purpose is to deepen our faith and to grow ever more perfectly for the greater glory of God. We are committed to faith education for all ages and groups. We welcome and support new, present, and returning parishioners.

      Through ongoing stewardship and active involvement, we seek to become more like the 'Little Flower' of Jesus, St. Therese; following her "little way" of doing ordinary things with "extra-ordinary" love.
