Mission Statement

The Catholic community of St Teresa of Avila Church are called to live the Gospel and to be Christ' presence to one another and to the world. We respond to God's Word through worship, community and service to our Parish family and to others in need.


Located at 306 Morris Avenue, Summit, NJ 07901, we are a welcoming Catholic community of 3200 families called by God to live out the message of Christ in love and service to all people.

For 150 years St. Teresa’s membership has been, in the words of our patroness, the "hands and feet" of God. As per our parish mission statement, together we respond to God’s Word through worship, community, and service to our parish family and to others in need.

St. Teresa’s is part of the Archdiocese of Newark of the Roman Catholic Church. We are blessed with two beautiful churches on our campus where you can join us in daily Masses. We also have a full range of faith formation opportunities, including pre-school and Kindergarten classes in our own school, a 1,000 student Religious Education program for youth, and a variety of offerings for adults.
