St Thérèse of Lisieux parish is in Ingleby Barwick, Stockton-on-Tees in north-east England and is part of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Middlesbrough.
The parish was founded in 1994 and we were delighted to open our new church building in March 2016 having celebrated Mass in various venues around Ingleby Barwick, most recently in the school hall at St Therese of Lisieux Primary School.
We are an active Parish and have regular courses for sacramental preparation including baptism, Reconcilliation and Eucharist and marriage. We have a course for adults who are interested in becoming a member of the catholic church.
Lay ministry is important to the church and we have a regular team of welcomers, eucharistic ministers, ministers of the word and children’s liturgy leaders. We depend up the time and hard work of our church cleaning group and gardening club. We are always looking for new members of these groups and you can find out how to become involved by looking on the relevant page on our website.
Our parish SVP group is involved in helping those less fortunate than ourselves both locally and internationally.
If you would like to become a part of our parish you are more than welcome to attend mass. Canon Pat and Deacon David are always around at the back of church if you would like to know any further information.
