Welcome to Saint Theodore Roman Catholic Church
We love visitors and are always happy to receive new members! Our website is one way that we provide helpful information to both visitors and parish members alike. As Christ's disciples, God has given us many gifts and talents, which are evident by the activity and presence of our parishioners. We pray together, we sing together, we work together, and we laugh together to build a strong future for our parish. The groups, ministries, and people you see throughout these pages reflect not only our present, but our future. We welcome you to Saint Theodore and hope that you will enjoy your visit and look forward to a day when you might join us in prayer.
We proclaim to all people the salvation which has appeared in Jesus Christ, so that by the lives we live and in our apostolic activities, all may come "to know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent" (John 17:3), and have life in all its fullness.
