  • Golf Tournament

    The St. Teresa’s Coaches Association will be hosting their thirteenth annual Golf Tournament at the Swansea Country Club on Saturday, May 20th at 1PM. The tournament will benefit the St. Teresa’s Youth Athletic program and we are asking for your support again this year.


    Last year the tournament sold out, so please put this date on your calendar and make plans to join us again this year for a great day of golf and fun. Applications will be available in March. The cost this year will be $110 per golfer. Any golfer that did not participate in last year’s tournament that would like to be put on a waiting list, can contact Buster Wall at 724-4012 or

    Phil Shea at 722-4549.


    The tournament committee is seeking tee sponsors or prize donations to be used in a raffle, which will be held at the tournament dinner. Anyone interested in making donations or becoming a tee sponsor ($75.00) may also contact Buster or Phil.

  • Readers Choice Contest

    Dear Parishioners,


    Congratulations to you! We are now in the top three places to worship in the state of Rhode Island! The winner will be announced at an awards banquet on May 4th at the Crowne Plaza in Warwick.


    From what I have been told, the event will resemble the Oscars or the Grammys, complete with champagne, a red carpet and a three course meal. I will be there and I hope to see as many of you as possible.


    None of this could have happened without your voting. Thank you so very

    much. Even if we do not come in number one, what we have achieved is quite the accomplishment.


    Information on the awards night can be found on the announcement boards in the church. If you would like to sit together with other St. Teresa’s parishioners, purchase tickets at:, then AFTER you click SUBMIT ORDER, you will be prompted to put in what business you are associated with. They will use this information when assigning seating.


    Thank you again for making our parish a best place to worship!

    Rev. David G. Thurber, Jr.
