Announcements

After Mass on Apr. 22, we will have our monthly Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament, in lieu of having it the following Sunday, as would be customary.

Next Sunday, Apr. 29, please welcome Fr. Benedict Hughes, CMRI, to our parish, while Fr. Trough will be on pilgrimage in Italy.

Our parishioners Jason & Melissa Smith will host a fishing tournament on Saturday, May 5. See details at facebook.com/catchingfireoutdoors.

Help is needed with cleaning the church. The more people volunteer, the less frequent each person’s turn will be. Please see Amanda Straight if you are interested. “How terrible is this place! This is no other but the house of God, and the gate of heaven” (Gen 28:17).

We are happy to announce that the Mater Dei Sisters will visit us again for our special Summer Catechism classes, the third week of June. We also have our annual Bowling Fundraiser around the same time. Details to follow.

The winter issue of The Reign of Mary has arrived, and we have a number of copies available in the bookstore for a donation of any amount. It is important to have good Catholic literature in the home, so please be sure to take home a copy. Do not pass up this opportunity to learn more about the Faith. Information to subscribe to this quarterly magazine of the CMRI can be found inside each issue.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen.

General Mass Schedule

  • 1st & 3rd Sunday of the month: MORNING MASS (9:30 am)
  • 2nd, 4th, & 5th Sunday of the month: EVENING MASS (6:00 pm)


Holy Mass at St. Therese parish is offered every Sunday and Holyday, as well as on some days during the week. For Sundays, we currently alternate a Morning Mass at 9:30 am with an Evening Mass at 6:00 pm (morning Mass on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month; evening Mass on the 2nd, 4th, and 5th Sundays of the month). Times for weekday Masses vary. Please always check this web site beforehand to ensure you have the right time for the next Mass. Confessions are always heard before all Masses; please check confession schedule below.


Collection Schedule

Collections are taken up every Sunday and Holyday. Typically there is only one collection at each Mass. Of course, all contributions are strictly voluntary, but keep in mind the Fifth Precept of the Church: to contribute to the support of the Church. We cannot exist without your help. Please remember to make up for missed collections, as expenses remain the same. Thank you. God bless your generosity.


Confessions

Confessions are always heard before all Masses, on Sundays and Holydays as scheduled, and 15-30 minutes before weekday Masses. Confessions are typically not heard after Mass, except as announced by Father.


Note to Newcomers

Welcome to St. Therese the Little Flower Roman Catholic Church. The clergy and parishioners of St. Therese adhere firmly to the unchangeable Catholic Faith as taught by all true Popes, from St. Peter to Pius XII. Because of our faithfulness to the Catholic Church of the ages, we reject the Modernist church of Vatican II with all its teachings, liturgical rites, and disciplines. We reject John XXIII, Paul VI, John Paul I, John Paul II, Benedict XVI, and Francis as illegitimate usurpers of the papal office and believe that there is currently no Pope reigning in the Catholic Church (sede vacante). We are not affiliated with the Modernist “Archdiocese of Cincinnati”.

We kindly ask that all who come to our parish observe the basic traditional Catholic standards of dress for church attendance:

• Women and girls must cover their heads. (Chapel veils or mantillas are available for loan in the vestibule.)

• Women and girls must wear dresses or skirts that cover the knee completely when standing or sitting. Slacks, shorts, sleeveless, tight or low-cut clothing, and dresses or skirts with long slits are not permitted.

• Men and boys should wear suit coats and ties.

• Jeans and other casual attire are inappropriate for attendance at church.

Newcomers are always welcome: Please introduce yourself and feel free to ask questions. If you are interested in becoming a parishioner of St. Therese, please ask the usher for a registration form. God bless you.


About Our Clergy

The clergy serving St. Therese church are affiliated with the Congregatio Mariae Reginae Immaculatae (CMRI), or Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen, a Roman Catholic religious order consisting of Priests, Brothers, and Sisters dedicated to preserving the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the Traditional Catholic Faith. It was founded in 1967 in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, and is headquartered in Spokane, Washington, as well as Omaha, Nebraska.

The CMRI is responsible for over 50 traditional Catholic churches and Mass centers both in the U.S. and abroad, a number of schools staffed by religious, several publications, and a comprehensive online Catholic store. Read more about how these traditional Catholic Priests, Brothers, and Sisters live and spread the Catholic Faith and the Fatima Message by accessing their web site here.

Please see also the Theological Position of the CMRI and information about the validity and lawfulness of the clergy ordained in the line of Bishop Pierre-Martin Ngo-Dinh-Thuc: ThucBishops.com.
