Announcements

Attention Confirmands: Fr. Trough will have confirmation classes after Holy Mass on Mar. 19 and Apr. 2.

The Confraternity of Christian Mothers will meet next Sunday, Mar. 26, after Holy Mass.

Easter Duty: By the fifth precept of the Church, all Catholics are required to receive Holy Communion worthily at least once a year during the Easter time. “Easter time” for this purpose is defined as the First Sunday of Lent to Trinity Sunday (First Sunday after Pentecost) inclusive.

Lunch for our Priest! We are in need of some extra volunteers needed to provide an occasional lunch for Father Trough on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month. It’s easy! The only requirements are that the meal be nutritious and easy to eat while traveling (non-sticky/non-juicy). There is a signup sheet in the vestibule, or, for more information, please see Cindy Beaver or Erin Ribar. May God reward your generosity, and remember: Feeding the hungry is a work of mercy (see below)!

Lent is a great time for practicing the corporal and spiritual works of mercy. They are: feeding the hungry, giving drink to the thirsty, clothing the naked, harboring the harborless, visiting the sick, ransoming the captive, burying the dead; instructing the ignorant, counseling the doubtful, admonishing sinners, bearing wrongs patiently, forgiving offenses willingly, comforting the afflicted, and praying for the living and the dead.

Holy Mass at St. Therese parish is offered every Sunday and Holyday, as well as on some days during the week.

Confessions are always heard before all Masses; please check confession schedule below.


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

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.

It was founded in 1967 in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, and is headquartered in Spokane, Washington, as well as Omaha, Nebraska.
