    We are very pleased to announce that Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio has indicated that our churches are slowly working towards re-opening for private Prayer and Devotion.
    Here at St. Teresa’s , we will open the main doors of the church (44th St.), beginning Monday, June 1st. The church will be open for private prayer and devotion. No public masses will be celebrated yet. This is important because of the danger of gathered crowds and the possible spread of the Corona Virus. We advise all who are health-compromised and the elderly to remain home. Anyone who feels sick in any way must stay home.
    The church has been measured and marked off, respecting social distance norms. Kindly honor these following points:

    * Church is open: 9am to 12 pm Monday thru Friday
    * For Private Prayer only - No Group Gatherings
    * No more than 10 people in church at any given time
    * Please social distance - at least 6 feet apart
    * You must wear a face mask
    * Use hand sanitizer upon entering and leaving church
    * Do not enter Sanctuary (Altar Area)
    * Please do not touch Statues/Tabernacle/framed Images
    * Votive candles are not available at this time
    * No Holy water available at this time
    * Obey marked off areas
    * Respect others who wish to pray
    * And pray for all!

If you have the Facebook app, you can find our page by searching for St. Teresa Woodside. You DO NOT have to have Facebook to watch the masses. This is a great opportunity for us to pray together as a community even though we can’t physically be at church together. Please spread the word to your family and friends. Stay safe!


    During this frightening pandemic, we feel helpless and afraid as our lives are turned upside down. Please know that all of our priests and deacons are praying for you, and for all people who are sick or suffering as a result of this situation. Please keep all priests and deacons in your own prayers. We offer the below prayer to help you find comfort during this crisis.
    Merciful God, in this time of sickness we place our trust and hope in You, the Divine Physician, to ease the suffering and the fear that is gripping us. Bless us with the calm and responsible behavior that we need to combat this crisis, and work through the decisions of our leaders and the hands of our medical professionals, caregivers and researchers. Let this illness pass quickly and bring us all together in You. Amen.


    Despite not celebrating public Masses, and therefore, no weekly collections, we must still pay our bills. Thank you to all who are mailing in their weekly donation envelopes, or dropping them in the rectory front door mail slot. Others are using the on line giving. We thank you and encourage all to continue your financial support of St. Teresa, as you see fit.
