The Mother Church of Trumbull

Young people, do not be afraid to be holy! Fly high, be among those whose goals are worthy of sons and daughters of God. Glorify God in your lives! -Pope Saint John Paul II

Founded in 2018, St. Theresa Church received a grant and LifeTeen subscription, allowing formation of our new Youth Ministry. Our focus, was to launch a new ministry designed to meet the needs of teens. Early projects included “Box of Joy,” which led to making blankets for the poor. Momentum grew when our youth established an initial group of 12 committed teens formally recognized by St. Theresa Church as STAY (St. Theresa Apostolic Youth). They have reached out engaging the community: “Talk and Tacos,” Teen Holy Hour with monthly Teen Adoration Night and more. Future plans include Rosary Reflection, Bible on the Beach, attending Fan the Fire.

We wish to thank Bishop Frank Caggiano, The Diocese of Bridgeport, and The Leadership Institute for the opportunity to apply and receive a grant through the Re-imagining Faith Formation Initiative.  This spring St. Theresa’s was awarded a grant from the Saint John Paul II Fund in recognition of the innovative approach to establishing a Youth Group for high school teens.
