Happy Liturgical New Year! With the First Sunday of Advent, we begin the liturgical cycle anew.
Some tips to have a holy Advent: (1) Attendance at more daily Masses (when available); (2) less TV/internet/entertainment time; (3) more spiritual reading; (4) acts of charity/alms deeds; (5) extra decades of the Rosary, more prayer time. Remember that the purpose of Advent is to prepare us for a worthy celebration of Christmas.
The First Friday and First Saturday of the month are this week. Please note that there is no Mass offered on Friday at our parish this week.
The Feast of the Immaculate Conception, a Holyday of Obligation, falls on Tuesday of next week, December 8. Holy Mass will be offered at 6:00 pm. The Advent Ember Days are coming up later in the month, Dec. 16 and 18-19.

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

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 approx. 45 minutes before Sunday Masses and immediately before weekday Masses.
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.
