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!  

Whole Hearts Psychology

We Welcome Whole Hearts Psychology to Our Campus!

A friendly reminder to anyone using the office building space at St. Teresa for meetings or gatherings: Whole Hearts Psychology is now the only use for the entire first floor office space.  For the privacy and confidentiality of Dr. Molitor and his patients, all others accessing the building are to enter through the meeting room side door or the lower level basement door.  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.

Homebound Visits - Pax Christi ministry - If you or someone you know would like a layperson from our Pax Christi ministry to visit your home, please contact the Parish Office at 812-537-3992 or parishoffice@dccatholics.com

Military Appreciation Project (MAP) 
All four Dearborn County Catholic Parishes are starting a new ministry to help our military members feel connected and appreciated by their parish. These men and women leave their home and community and are stationed all over the map. Michaela Spangler, a parish member of All Saints and Senior at EC, is starting MAP Ministry to send care packages for birthdays and holidays to the active duty military of our parishes as part of her Gold Award for Girl Scouts. We want our active military men and women to know that their home parish has not forgotten them, and that we appreciate their sacrifice and dedication to our country. There are three components to get this new ministry opportunity off the ground:1. If you have a son or daughter who is currently serving in the military, we would like to know so that we can include them. Please send an email to mic6of6@gmail.com. We are also accepting monetary donations to go towards this project. All donations can be sent to the Parish Office. Please specify that the donation is for MAP.3. Michaela is getting this ministry off the ground but new volunteers will be needed to continue it once she goes away to college. Please pray about getting involved and email mic6of6@gmail.com if you would like to help continue her efforts.​

Fr. Meyer joined Marc Tuttle and Kent Blandford on Indy Catholic Radio for a look at the ever-changing role of men in parish and family life in anticipation of the E6 Catholic Men's Conference. Here is a link to the podcast.
