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.     IMG_0651

Our parish has begun the process of completing a Feasibility Study to determine the next step in our Master Plan phase. All parishioners should have received a survey pertaining to this matter. If you did not receive a survey, please contact the parish office at 812.656.8700. Mark Davy and Associates is the company that is coordinating the Feasibility Study. We invite you to go to their website for more information at or click this link and it will take you directly to the survey for our parish. No need to print or turn it in, it will be online and sent directly to them.

This past week the Parish Council, Chameleon Architecture, and I presented our completed Master Plan to the parish. Over the last year many of you have participated in this process either by attending one of the town hall meetings or by filling out the surveys. We appreciate your input. The Holy Spirit was certainly at work guiding us all during this time and I believe that is why we have such a beautiful, well thought-out, and reasonable plan. Click here to go to the page with more information about the plan and to see a video of the planned campus.
