St. Teresa's Parish Offers Low-Gluten Hosts: We now have low-gluten hosts available for anyone who needs them. Please notify the celebrant 15 minutes before Mass if you or a family member require a low-gluten host and one will be consecrated for you. Parishioners receiving low-gluten hosts should sit near the front of the church so that they may be among the first to receive Holy Communion from the celebrant.
