Parish Grounds & Landscaping at St. Teresa ~ Adopt a Space Program
St. Teresa Grounds ~ Such An Improvement!
A huge thank you to the volunteers who have taken on sprucing up - and in some cases, overhauling - the landscaping at our various buildings on campus. The rectory, office, and church grounds were all in true need of some TLC this spring. Thank you to the teams who have given much time to these efforts: Rectory Landscaping Team - Wayne and Vickie Stubenrauch and Ray Littelmann
Office Landscaping Team - Mike and Karen Robison
Church Landscaping Team - Bev and Bob Wetterich and Ed Wilke
We Welcome Our Two Deacons!
We are welcoming 2 more Deacons to Dearborn County beginning June 26th- Deacon Mark Schmidl and Deacon Kevin Daily along with Deacon Bob Decker, who has been in the County since 2014 at All Saints Parish. The Deacons, especially our newly ordained Dcn. Kevin and Dcn. Mark will assist at all four parishes "in solidum." Please include these holy men in your prayers as they serve throughout the county.
The role of a deacon will be explained from the pulpit and in upcoming bulletin articles. However, in a practical way, our deacons will be:
~performing all baptisms outside of Mass.
~performing all weddings outside of Mass.
~performing all funerals outside of Mass.
~performing all funeral rosaries/wakes.
~Assisting with baptismal prep (visiting and blessing homes) and marriage prep.
Fr. Mahan and Fr. Meyer will cease doing baptisms, weddings and funerals outside the context of Holy Mass. Since we have Deacons, their work, service and worship will be used and appreciated!

Additionally, the only restrooms that are accessible to groups using the office space are located in the lower level. Thank you for paying attention to these most important details as we welcome Whole Hearts Psychology to Dearborn County.
