St. Therese celebrates expansion

St. Therese of Carmel Parish will hold their second annual Octoberfest celebration on Saturday, Sept. 12, 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The celebration marks the third anniversary for the church on Del Mar Trails; their first mass was held in October 2006.

“It was a blast last year but it will be even better this year,” said Susan Morrison, co-chair of the event.

Open to everyone, Octoberfest features carnival games such as skee ball, dart toss and a 12-foot putt-putt golf game built by congregation members. For the children there will be face painting, balloon animals, cakewalks and inflatable play structures, including a 27-foot high “cliffhanger” slide.

For adults there will be a beer and wine garden. Food such as hot dogs, bratwurst, chili and pizza will be for sale as well.

This is an exciting time for St. Therese as they broke ground in June on their new parish social center. The new building will be about 5,800 square feet and house administrative offices, a social hall, a chapel, a teen center and meeting spaces.

They hope to open the doors for the social center in September 2010.

“Everyone says it’s a bad time to build because of the economy but our parish can’t go any further,” said Paula Salinas, parish administrator. “In order to grow, we need to build the parish social center now.”

The center has been part of the church’s vision since it was founded in 1985, Salinas said.
For 21 years the congregation bounced around in temporary meeting places including restaurants, schools and hotels before they built their current home on Del Mar Trails.
