Welcome to the Parish of St. Teresa of Calcutta!

One Parish Family With Two Worship Sites

Ascension Worship Site      Saint Elizabeth Worship Site

The Parish of St. Teresa of Calcutta is a Roman Catholic parish, under the jurisdiction of the Diocese of Trenton, serving the Jersey Shore communities of Avon by the Sea, Bradley Beach, Neptune, Neptune City, and neighboring areas. Our Parish community was formed on July 1st, 2018 by uniting the Church of the Ascension, Bradley Beach, with St. Elizabeth of Hungary Church, Avon by the Sea. We hope to meet you at one of our community churches as we walk hand in hand, united in Christ, doing the Lord’s good work here along coastal New Jersey and beyond.

  • Eucharistic Adoration Wednesday has begun…please join us at Ascension Worship Site Wednesdays after the 8:00AM mass at any time in the morning or afternoon up until 7:00pm.  
  • Confessions will also be held on Wednesdays in O’Hara Hall between 6:00pm and 7:00pm.
  • At 7:00pm in Ascension Church, there will be Holy Hour to include the Rosary, Divine Mercy Chaplet, and Benediction.

 St. Teresa of Calcutta parish has some exciting news!

On Wednesdays at the Ascension Worship site, we would like to offer all day Eucharistic Adoration on an ongoing basis. Following the 8AM Mass.

Participation is key!

Hosting a day of Adoration means we need a large group of dedicated adorers who are willing to volunteer each week on an ongoing basis. Our goal is to have at least 2 committed adorers per hour, providing coverage and flexibility in the event an adorer is unable to attend. Please prayerfully discern volunteering one hour of your time each week. Which hour you choose is up to you. 

Look for the sign-up table at both worship sites on Sunday, December 6th. For more information, contact Sharon Delaney at 732-241-8264 or Diane Baker at 732-774-8330.

Currently our Weekend Mass Schedule is as follows;


Sat-4pm-Inside Church Avon

Sun-9am-Inside Church Avon

        Sun-10:30am-Inside Church Avon

         Sat-5:30pm-Inside Church Bradley Beach
