Announcements

Adult Catechism class for Saturday, Jan. 20, has been canceled. We will resume in February.

Sunday, Jan. 21, we will be having our annual parish meeting after the morning Mass. The location this time will be The Enchanted Village at 3 South Sycamore St in Lebanon, which is only two blocks from our church. We will begin at 11:00 am. After a brief discussion of various “business” items, we will enjoy a nice breakfast together. All parishioners and visitors are invited to attend. We have the facility only until 12:30 pm, so we will keep the formal part of our meeting short (about 10-15 minutes). The church will provide donuts, bagels, cream cheese, juices and coffee — there is no need for you to bring extras this time!

From Jan. 18-25, we will have Devotions for the Chair of Unity Octave after Mass. The Chair of Unity Octave was established in 1908 by Pope St. Pius X. It is a week of prayer for the conversion of non-Catholics. Every year it begins on the feast of the Chair of St. Peter at Rome and ends on the feast of the Conversion of St. Paul. The Vatican II Church has subverted its original intent and transformed it into a celebration of ecumenism.

The end of the Christmas season is approaching fast, and soon we will need to remove our decorations again. Tentatively, we intend to do this on Saturday, Feb. 2 or after Mass on Sunday, Feb. 3.

Holy Mass at St. Therese parish is offered every Sunday and Holyday, as well as on some days during the week.

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”.

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.
