Our parish name "Mater Christi" is a Latin phrase which means "Mother of Christ". With Mary as our spiritual mother, we strive to follow in her footsteps by cultivating that same faith and love for Jesus that she modeled for us in the Gospels.


To form Disciples of Christ through Mary


St. Teresa of Avila

Mary, Mother of Christ

"Mater Christi"

St. Catherine of Siena

Although the parish of Mater Christi was dedicated to Mary, the Mother of God in 2009. Our Church has gone through some changes in the past 103 years! in 1920, our Church was built and dedicated to St. Theresa of Avila. Then in 1953 it was rededicated, this time, to St. Catherine of Siena. Finally, in October of 2009, it was given the title that we now hold, Mater Christi. A title that is at the very core of our mission, to form disciples of Christ through Mary.
