Welcome to St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross. We are a Roman Catholic Parish that serves the northeastern part of Dearborn County, Indiana. Our church is located in Bright, Indiana which is just northwest of Cincinnati, Ohio. Our parish was founded in 2000 and we have quickly grown in size. Our hope is that this website helps not only our parishioners, but anyone who might be interested in learning more about the Catholic faith.
