There will be no Mass at St. Therese this Monday, Oct. 24, as Father Trough will be in Columbus.

Next Sunday being the fifth Sunday of the month, Holy Mass will once again be offered in the evening at the usual time.

This year, our annual Christ the King Party will take place at the Scheelers’ residence in Mason on Saturday, Oct. 29 at 5:00 pm. As always, the children are asked to wear their favorite saint’s costume. Please have a look at the flyer posted in the vestibule for details, or see Amanda Straight or Ellen Scheeler.

Wanted: Altar Flower Coordinator. We are seeking one or more persons to take over altar flower duty. Please see Cindy Beaver is interested. Thank you.

The next Holyday of Obligation is Nov. 1, All Saints’ Day. It falls on a Tuesday this year.

Beginning Nov. 6, our time for Sunday Morning Mass will permanently change from 9:00 am to 9:30 am. Confessions, however, will still begin at 8:15 am. This will allow for more confession time and eliminate the need for Father to hear confessions after Mass. The Rosary will still be recited half an hour before Mass, now at 9:00 am.

We will soon begin installing a closed-circuit television system in the cry room so that parents attending to their little ones will be able to follow the Mass from that location.

Remember that our church is open on Wednesday nights at 7:00 pm for a communal recitation of the Rosary and silent adoration. Come and comfort the Prisoner of Love in the Tabernacle.

Bp. Mark Pivarunas is raising the fee for Mass stipends. Effective Dec. 1, the requested amount for a Mass stipend will be $25.00 (currently $20.00). Thank you.

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 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.
