In an abundance of extreme caution, we have decided to cancel our Feast Day Celebration at the National Shrine of St. Therese in Darien, IL.

Instead, we will offer a virtual event so our faith community can still honor and celebrate the Feast Day of St. Therese of Lisieux in October 1, 2020.

Please see the following for details.

St. Therese Feast Day Virtual Celebration

Thursday, October 1, 2020 | 10:30 AM (CST)Untitled-design-(1)-cropped

Please join us in celebrating the Feast Day of St. Therese online. On Oct. 1, please visit this page to view our Feast Day Mass, Blessing of the Roses, Veneration of her relics, and a talk about St. Therese.

This year's Feast Day Celebration holds a special meaning for many of us because it gives us a chance to join as one community, online, and offer our prayer together. As we continue to struggle with a health crisis, St. Therese reminds us we can find hope and love when we rely on Jesus alone.


St. Therese Feast Day Novena

Join us for our Feast Day Novena. Starting on September 22 we will share the Feast Day Novena the Carmelites are praying for you and your intentions. Visit this page or sign up for our E-News to be reminded.
