Dear Friends,

Theresians from around the world welcome you! It is our hope that by visiting this site you will gain an understanding of our dynamic and contemporary spiritual ministry for women. Theresians call forth Catholic and other Christian women to greater holiness through a committed life rich in Gospel values. Through our five dimensions: Spirituality, Education, Vocation, Community and Ministry we become  “Women Supporting Women, Reaching Out with Gospel Values.“

Theresian ministry challenges women to make their spiritual development a priority. It is only when we are grounded in our faith and take precious time to nurture our spiritual life that we can be truly present to others. We believe the model of Theresian small faith communities creates sacred space where women can come together to support one another in their faith journey.

Are you looking for a way to deepen your relationship with Jesus Christ? Are you looking for a supportive faith community that can challenge you to live an authentic Christian life? If so, Theresians may be just for you.

We invite you to explore the many pages of our website. You will learn about our history, our roots and how we have grown over the last 50 years.

If you would like to begin a Theresian community in your city or country, contact us and we will be more than happy to connect you with the international office or one of our members who can assist you in beginning your own community of faith-filled women. Just send us an email and we will be happy to help you.

With Theresian blessings,

Victoria S. Schmidt
Executive Director
Theresians International
