Saint Teresa of Avila Catholic Church The Mother Roman Catholic Church of Southeast Washington, DC


Welcome! We're so glad that you have decided to visit us on the web. We are a community of people whose lives have been deeply changed by God's grace and truth. We seek to lead all people to a personal and life changing encounter with the risen Lord through the Word proclaimed, the sacraments celebrated and the community gathered in prayer and thanksgiving.

While the digital age makes it easy to visit us from a distance, a website can't substitute for face to face interaction. We would like to personally invite you to come join us on Wednesday at 7:30pm Bible Study, or Sunday Mass at 7:30am and 9:30am. So we hope you'll visit us soon. We'll look forward to seeing you!
