Greetings from the Mission

The St. Therese Mission is a center of devotion to the beloved Saint in the Mojave Desert. It is located along the Old Spanish Trail, Tecopa, California, just 45 minutes away from Las Vegas.


The complex’s simple, yet modern architecture is built to inspire prayer and reflection. Every detail is designed to remind us of St. Therese’s commitment to God and God’s presence in her life.

About St. Thérèse

Known as the Millenium Saint, she taught us the “Little Way” and said that it was not nececssary to accomplish heroic acts or “great deeds”, in order to attain holiness.


The St. Therese Mission is a testament to the simple yet extraordinary life that she led and the great love and faith she inspired.
