 Until 1926, mountaintop Catholics attended Mass at either the Butts Hotel in East Windham or the Osborn House.  In 1926, the original St. Theresa Roman Catholic Church was built where approximately 125 families attended services. During the summer months, attendance swelled due to the tourist season and up to five masses each Sunday were held!  On the morning of February 6th, 1962, a fire destroyed the church in a matter of only three hours.  Volunteers from surronding areas, including Windham, Hunter, Hensonville, Prattsville and Ashland used the only water available, in the trucks, to put out the fire to no avail.  A building fund and fund raisers were started and many local churches pitched in with offers of donations and for offers of usage of their facilities to hold Mass.  In April of 1962, ground breaking ceremonies took place and construction began on the building that we now celebrate Mass in.

                                          (1873-1897)
                                           October 1st


St. Theresa was a Carmelite often referred to as, "the little flower."   She lead a cloistered life of obscurity in the convent of Lisieux, France.  Her preference for hidden sacrafice did convert souls.  Few saints of God are more popular than this young nun.  Her autobiography,  The Story of a Soul, is read and loved throughout the world.  Therese Martin entered the convent at age 15 and died in 1897 at the young age of 24.
