Ordained:
Deacon 2009

Priest 2010

After several years of serving in a variety of parish ministries, Theresa answered the call to priesthood to minister to those who have become disillusioned with the Church but who still long to be fed spiritually. Her priestly ministry has included the celebration of weekend Masses as well as weddings and baptisms in settings not limited to a church building. Feeling especially called to offer comfort and presence to those whose loved ones have died, she officiates Catholic and spiritual funerals and celebrations of life for practicing and non-practicing Catholics, persons of other faith traditions, and those with no religious affiliation at all. Theresa holds a Master of Arts in Theology with a concentration in Pastoral Ministry/Spirituality from Saint Michael’s College in Vermont as well as a Master of Arts in Speech-Language Pathology. Formerly Director of Development for New Hampshire Catholic Charities and an executive director of a chamber of commerce, she has held professional positions in the areas of communications, business development, and fundraising, and has worked extensively as a speech-language pathologist and consultant in educational and healthcare settings. A native of New Hampshire, she and her husband, Gary, reside in beautiful Mid-Coast Maine. She can be reached at tnovakchabot@comcast.net
