At St. Therese’s, the only Easter Mass will be that of the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday night, beginning at 10:30 pm. The Mass proper will begin around midnight. To all our parishioners, visitors, and their families: A most joyful, blessed, and grace-filled Easter feast and season!

Easter Mass envelopes are available in the vestibule. Please fill one out with your intentions, which you would like Father to remember, and submit in the collection basket or hand to him directly. Donations are optional.

Paschaltide begins on Easter Sunday and ends on the Saturday before Trinity Sunday. Throughout the Easter season, instead of the Angelus is prayed the Regina Caeli, and the Asperges before High Mass is replaced by the Vidi Aquam.

Lent is over, but that doesn’t mean going back on all the progress we have made during that time. Rather, let us use the graces obtained and the spiritual progress made as a stepping stone to advance higher every year, coming ever closer to the goal Christ set for us, assisted by His grace: “Be you therefore perfect, as also your heavenly Father is perfect” (Matthew 5:48). Also, let us not forget during Easter to be thankful for the many blessings and graces received during the past 40 days.

Fr. Jeremy Saunders will be with us next Sunday. Fr. Tien Le will visit us on May 5, while Fr. Trough will be in Fatima and Lourdes.

We still have plenty of copies of Fr. Francisco and Fr. Dominic Radecki’s new book, Vatican II Exposed as Counterfeit Catholicism. Please have a look after Mass (copies are available in the little nursery beside the vestibule). The list price of these books is $50 each; however, we sell them for $35 (with dust jacket) or $30 (without dust jacket). Simply put check or cash into the cash box found there. Checks should be made out to St. Therese Church. See Mario Derksen for questions.


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

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

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 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:
