Please note that until the official dedication ceremony of our church in August, the Blessed Sacrament is not yet being reserved in the tabernacle. Once the Blessed Sacrament is present, the sanctuary candle will be lit to indicate this. Likewise, we will not have holy water in the church until the dedication by Bp. Mark Pivarunas on August 6.

The banns of matrimony are announced for Andrew Hille and Lauren Ribar. If you are aware of any reason that would prevent a valid marriage between Mr. Hille and Miss Ribar, you are obliged under pain of mortal sin to make this known to the pastor, Fr. John Trough. The wedding is scheduled for August 9, 2014.

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

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.


Confessions are usually heard 45 minutes before Mass, according to the availability of the priest. Please try to come early to ensure Father can hear your confession before Mass.

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 Novus Ordo 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 a board member 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.
