Fr. William Gabriel, O.S.A. to celebrate Mass on July 10th

Billy Gabriel, will become Father William Gabriel, O.S.A. when he is ordained on Saturday, June 26th, @ St.Thomas of Villanova Church. As a newly ordained priest,  Billy has asked Father Gary, our Pastor, to celebrate one of his First Masses of Thanksgiving at St. Theresa Church on Saturday, July 10th, 4pm Vigil Mass.

Billy loved Father Fritz and Father Moe and gives each of them much credit & thanks for supporting and influencing his Vocation to the Priesthood as an Augustinian Priest.

Billy has stayed in touch with our Parish during his formation, his diaconate and as a high school teacher in Chicago, and Delaware. We are honored to welcome all who have been touched by Billy's witness of the Faith to Mass on July 10th.

Billy is authentic, humorous, holy and talented.....our Catholic Church is blessed to have him become a priest and to celebrate our weekend Vigil Mass on Saturday, July 10th here, at St. Theresa,  Rye Beach, NH @ 4pm.


We, the Catholic Community of St. Theresa Parish, rich in diversity and unified by our common faith are committed to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ by being a safe, holy, hospitable place where all can worship and are welcome. Reaching out in service to family and community enables us to live the Gospel.  Nourished by Christ in the Eucharist we become Eucharist for one another.  St. Theresa, our patron saint, teaches us to live each day with confidence in God's love and we learn that what matters in life is

"not great deeds, but great love".


Welcome to Saint Theresa Parish, a Catholic Community located in beautiful Rye Beach, New Hampshire.  Rev. Gary J. Kosmowski is our Pastor.  We always welcome and enjoy visitors!  Please introduce yourself and let us know where you are from.
