We would like to invite you to participate in one of our many ministries. Our growing community has opportunities for involvement in many areas. Noted ministries do require training, which is offered on regular intervals. Volunteers are assigned on a rotating schedule and a weekly commitment is not necessary. Please prayerfully consider joining us in serving our community. Mother Teresa Mission Volunteer Form available here.
Questions? Contact: smtccary@gmail.com

Prayer Service on the Land

Ministry Leaders of Mother Teresa Mission,

In order to build community and encourage more people to come out to the land for our future church, the Parish Council is asking that each Ministry take the responsibility of hosting the monthly Prayer Service at the 1221 Yates Store Road. 

You can ask one of the Priests or Deacons to be there or you can have a simple gathering for prayer.  There is a Statue of Mary, the Stations of the Cross, ample parking, shade, seating, and beautiful surroundings.  Port-a-potty is available upon request, depending on size and expected length of prayer service

Our goal is to have a monthly prayer service scheduled on the first Saturday at 10AM.  Rain date is the following Sunday at 2PM.  If your Ministry group would like to schedule a specific date other than the first Saturday, please email Joe Sleinlage.

Thank you for helping to organize a prayer service on this beautiful piece of property that will someday be our future church site!
