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.
There are so many events happening at St. Teresa during this Lenten season. Prayerfully consider joining us for some or all of them.
Stations of the Cross
Stations of the Cross are at 6pm every Friday during Lent. We meet in church. Please prayerfully consider joining us for this awesome Lenten experience.

COMPLETED FEASIBILITY STUDY
Our feasibility study is complete and the report can be found HERE
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) Committee on Evangelization and Catechesis has released an online version of the United States Catholic Catechism for Adults (USCCA). The USCCA is free and is searchable, printable, and shareable. The table of contents provides easy access to each chapter. The glossary and appendices are included as well. The USCCA is available in English at and in Spanish at http://ccc.usccb.org/flipbooks/uscca-spanish/index.html.
THE COMPLETED MASTER PLAN
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.
