Robert Rogers - St. ThereseSt. Therese Catholic Church, 2304 Lower Huntington Rd., Fort Wayne, will hold a Parish Mission beginning Sunday, March 5 through Wednesday, March 8, for all parishioners, family, friends and guests. The public also is welcome.

The theme of the Mission is “Be Thankful in All Things.”
