This week we observe the Ember Days during Pentecost. Please note that Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday of this week are thus days of fast and partial/complete abstinence. 

The banns of matrimony are announced for Aaron Bohman and Erika Monnier. The banns are also announced for Michael J. Ribar and Theresa Boylson. Anyone who is aware of an impediment that would prevent a valid marriage is bound to make this known to the pastor under pain of mortal sin.

Next Sunday is Trinity Sunday, which is the last opportunity to make your Easter Duty.

Next Sunday, we will have an outdoor Rosary Procession at 5:00 pm, to be followed by confessions at 5:30 pm and then Holy Mass at 6:00 pm.

The feast of Corpus Christi falls on May 31 this year and will be observed at St. Therese’s on Sunday, June 3.

Help is needed with cleaning the church. Please see Amanda Straight for details.

The Mater Dei Sisters will visit us again for our special Summer Catechism classes, the third week of June. We will also have our annual Bowling Fundraiser at the end of that week, on Saturday, June 23. Details to follow.

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

General Mass Schedule

  • 1st & 3rd Sunday of the month: MORNING MASS (9:30 am)
  • 2nd, 4th, & 5th Sunday of the month: EVENING MASS (6:00 pm)

Holy Mass at St. Therese parish is offered every Sunday and Holyday, as well as on some days during the week. For Sundays, we currently alternate a Morning Mass at 9:30 am with an Evening Mass at 6:00 pm (morning Mass on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month; evening Mass on the 2nd, 4th, and 5th Sundays of the month). Times for weekday Masses vary. Please always check this web site beforehand to ensure you have the right time for the next Mass. 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 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:
