Welcome to St Theresa’s

Welcome to St. Theresa of Lisieux Catholic Church in the village of Stansted Mountfitchet, Essex in the Diocese of Brentwood. The church was built in 2002 in the distinctive style of an Essex barn and can be seen from the Cambridge Road on entering or leaving the village.

St. Theresa’s church is a small but welcoming parish. If you are new to the area or are thinking of joining our parish, please contact us.

Children’s Liturgy

We are very pleased to announce that Children’s Liturgy will be starting again on 5th March. It will be held once a month on the first of the month and will be open to primary school aged children up until they receive their First Holy Communion.

Children’s Liturgy will be held in St. Theresa’s room to the right of the altar. Whilst sessions are in place, we ask all parents to remain in the main part of the church and also respectfully ask that parents of younger children do not use this room. Any child who becomes restless should be taken into the foyer whilst sessions are taking place. Many thanks for your cooperation.
