Parish of St. Theresa and 
Our Lady of the Wayside


To strengthen stewardship at St. Theresa and Our Lady of the Wayside, we invite you to consider utilizing a new and easier way to support our parish through WeShare™, an automated donation processor recommended by the New York Archdiocese and utilized by many churches throughout the country.

WeShare serves churches as the country's largest religious donation processor. WeShare makes it easier to give. Churches today have a daunting task - to maintain their mission of spreading the word of God and provide the spiritual backbone of the community - all while facing the budgetary constraints that weather, vacations, and today's more mobile families face.
