St. Theresa of Avila is a Roman Catholic parish in the heart of South-Central Illinois. God’s Spirit is alive in our parish community. The young people in our PSR and Youth Ministry are filled with enthusiasm. Young adults and parents take seriously their baptismal call to minister to one another and to pass down the faith to our children. Our older members continue to bless us with their wisdom. 


Our Mission


The mission of our parish is to be a community who believes, proclaims, and extends the powerful and loving presence of Jesus Christ to others. We are called and sent to pass down the Catholic Faith we have inherited through our worship, word, and work.
