Additional observations  St. Therese is a large church devoted to St. Therese of the Little Flower.  It is probably the most conservative in the area.  It has a 24-hour adoration chapel, strong Respect Life ministry, Legion of Mary and Natural Family Planning classes.  Although the nearby Carmelite Sisters of the Sacred Heart Motherhouse has its own chapel, don’t be surprised to see the sisters lined up for confession on Saturdays.  There is a gift shop which sells religious items next to the vestibule.
