Sunday, October 4 is our long-awaited Parish Picnic! All parishioners and visitors to our parish are invited to join us at Armco Park after the High Mass. The address is 1223 N. State Rt. 741, Lebanon, OH 45036. See map below.

We welcome the Mater Dei Sisters and Rev. Timothy Geckle for visiting our parish and thank them and all who assisted with catechism classes, for their work and dedication to the education of our children.

Our next Holy Hour is scheduled for Monday, October 12, 7:30-8:30 pm. We are looking for three servers to volunteer. Please see Father if interested.

October is the month of the Holy Rosary. In 1889, Pope Leo XIII established that the prayer “To Thee, O Blessed Joseph” be added to the recitation of the Rosary during this month: “We prescribe that during the whole month of October, at the recitation of the Rosary, for which We have already legislated, a prayer to St. Joseph be added…, and that this custom should be repeated every year” (Encyclical Letter Quamquam Pluries, n. 6).

PARISH PICNIC on Sunday, October 4:

Who’s invited? All parishioners and visitors to our parish.

Time: Starts at ~11:00 am


Armco Park (like last year)

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 typically heard about 45 minutes before Mass on Sundays and holydays, and 20 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 authentic 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.


If you would like to become a parishioner of St. Therese's, please complete a registration form and put it in the collection basket. Copies are available in the vestibule (look for the yellow forms). We want to make sure you get email announcements and are able to vote on important issues affecting the parish.
