Sacraments & Parish

Parish

The History of St. Therese Church of the Little Flower:

Bishop Thomas K. Gorman established the parish of St. Therese Church of the Little Flower, in 1946, and installed Monsignor Thomas Collins as the first pastor.

In 1974, with the growth of the Parish, Father Robert Bowling, then pastor, and Bishop Norman F. McFarland, began formulating plans for a church to be built on the property with the school and convent. The last Mass was celebrated in the old church July 1, 1978. The first Mass in the new church was celebrated on July 8. 1978. Dedication took place on the feast of the Little Flower, October 1, 1978.

Today the Parish serves the spiritual needs of approximately 4,000 families and is a culturally diverse parish, working together and having pride in our Catholic School!
