St Theresa – 1991 Norman Rd

This church always sticks out to me, visible from Tecumseh Road, but kind of tucked away in a residential area. The church was built in 1947, designed by J. C. Pennington. It looks to be in great shape. At a time when church attendance has fallen, and many churches consolidated and closed, it’s nice to see this one holding on. The parish was established in 1925, as a mission of Our Lady of the Rosary at Riverside and Drouillard. I’m not sure if this church replaced an earlier one, or maybe services were held at the school across the street?
