There will be a brief but important parish meeting after the 9:00 am High Mass on Sunday, September 7. We will gather on the lawn behind the church building. Chairs will be provided.

Please pray for Mr. Louis Edward Monnin, father of Keith Monnin of Immaculate Conception church. He is in intensive care for kidney failure.

All Masses on Sundays and Holydays are preceded by a communal praying of the Holy Rosary, approximately 30 minutes before Mass. Please feel free to join us.

Our choir is welcoming new members. If you are interested in joining or would like more information, please see Ellen Scheeler or Becky DiMare.

Our parish now has an Altar & Rosary Society. We welcome (young) lady parishioners to help in the sacristy, take care of vestments and linens, and assist with various other duties relating to liturgical decorations and the upkeep and cleaning of the church and social spaces. The first meeting will be held on September 7 after the 9:00 am Mass. Please speak to Cindy Beaver or Ellen Scheeler for more information.

We now have Votive Candles in front of the statue of Our Lady of Fatima. Suggested donation is $5 per candle. This will cover the cost of the candle; the remainder will go towards our alms fund. Simply put the money into the poor box by the statue. Thank you.

The last weekend in September, Fr. Casimir Puskorius, CMRI, will be visiting our parish for Sunday Mass. Fr. Casimir is the pastor at Mount St. Michael in Spokane, Washington.

A big thank-you to His Excellency, Bp. Mark Pivarunas (CMRI), the Reverend Fathers, and the Mater Dei Sisters for coming to our Parish Church Dedication Ceremony on August 6. It was an incredibly beautiful ceremony, and the church was packed, with standing room only. PHOTOS OF THE CEREMONY ARE NOW POSTED HERE.

We wish to express our heartfelt gratitude also to all who attended, some from quite far away, and each and every one who helped in whatever ways to make this dedication the wonderful celebration that it was. There is a lot of behind-the-scenes work that went on that we wish to acknowledge. 

Please note: The Blessed Sacrament is now once again being reserved in our Tabernacle, as indicated by the Sanctuary Candle. Please remember to keep a reverent silence in church and to genuflect to acknowledge His Presence.

Please continue to pray for Mrs. Lisa Gregory. Having been admitted to the hospital for blood clots in her lungs, she is now home. She is a wife and mother of numerous children. In addition, she is currently pregnant.

We wish to thank Frater Augustine, Brother Xavier, Sean Redmond, and all those who have helped them, for the diligent and tireless work on the inside of the church. May God reward your generous efforts!

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 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.
