Attention all parishioners: On Sunday, Dec. 17, we will need volunteers to help put up the Christmas decorations in the church after the morning Mass. The more people join, the faster it will go for everyone. Bonus: Free food will be provided! Also, there will be a brief meeting for the Board of Trustees at the same time, in the upstairs of the church.

This year, Christmas falls on a Monday. Fr. James McGilloway, CMRI,  will visit us and offer the evening Mass for the Fourth Sunday of Advent (Dec. 24) and a Christmas Day morning Mass at 9:30 am.

December is the Month of the Divine Infancy.

Rev. Frater Augustine Walz will be ordained to the holy priesthood by Bp. Mark Pivarunas in Omaha, Nebraska, on Tuesday, Dec. 12. Years ago, Frater Augustine was one of the three full-time volunteers who worked tirelessly to convert our current building into a beautiful church.

Fr. Trough is currently accepting Mass stipends.

We have Advent candles and 2018 Wall Calendars in the bookstore. The candles are $8 per set; the calendars are free (please limit to one per household).

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 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:
