St. Teresa's Episcopal Church

Share a story

From the beginning, St. Teresa’s has espoused a belief that we are “the hands and feet of Christ” in this part of the world. With that understanding, we endeavor to provide compassionate care for each other and minister in important ways to the surrounding community. Our varied backgrounds and experiences provide a wealth of ongoing resources for new and improved ways to accomplish those ideals.

Our Rector

Rev. Debora "Deby" Adinolfi is the third Rector of St. Teresa's and comes to us with a diverse business background and a Cambridge University education in Theology!  Prior to being called to St. Teresa's, she was the Assistant Rector at St. Matthew's Episcopal Church in the Phoenix Metro area.  She is passionate about helping others to grow in their faith and believes in the importance of developing a personal relationship with God through daily prayer and other spiritual practices. When she isn't at church, you might find her hiking - capturing God's creation with her camera, or you might find her baking, or maybe even knitting.  You can follow Rev. Deby's blog here. You can email Rev. Deby at
