October 11, the feast of the Divine Maternity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, marked the patronal feast of our Mater Dei Sisters. With two sisters of the congregation celebrating their 25th anniversary, our Sr. Mary Theresa, Sr. Maria Goretti, and Sr. Mary Clare traveled to their motherhouse in Persia, Iowa, for a few days. Group photos of all 29 Mater Dei Sisters have been uploaded here.

Fr. Le is accepting Mass requests for mid-November and later. Envelopes are available in the vestibule. Please hand them directly to Father or put into the collection basket.

Promise #2 of the Fifteen Promises of the Bl. Virgin Mary to Christians who Recite the Holy Rosary, as revealed to St. Dominic: “I promise my special protection and the greatest graces to all those who shall recite the Rosary.”

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.

Free copies of Bp. Pivarunas’ Pastoral Letter on Modesty are available online here and can be downloaded as a PDF here.


Our Faithful Departed in 2018...


Mary Viola Scheeler
(July 8, 2000 - Sep. 28, 2018)

“Almighty and everlasting God, lover of holy purity, who hast vouchsafed this day mercifully to call the soul of this child to the kingdom of heaven; vouchsafe also, O Lord, to deal mercifully with us, that through the merits of Thy most holy Passion and the intercession of the blessed Mary ever Virgin, and of all Thy saints, we may rejoice with all Thy saints and elect in the same kingdom for ever. Who lives and reignest, world without end. Amen.”

—Collect of the burial of those who have died in baptismal innocence


Thomas Charles Williamitis
(Aug. 23, 2001 - Feb. 13, 2018)

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

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” 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.

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:
