Note to Visitors
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” headed by Dennis Schnurr.
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 for a registration form. God bless you.
Modesty is the safeguard of purity, which is the “virtue that endears us to thy heavenly Bridegroom”, as we pray in our novena to St. Therese.
There are great online resources to shop for modest clothing, incl. sportswear:
Important Disclaimer: Some of these web sites also sell clothing that is not in accordance with the Catholic standard of modesty. Please exercise caution while browsing, and keep in mind it is the Catholic standard for modesty we must follow, not the secular one.
