Announcements

Please pray for our parishioner Mary Klei, who is having difficulty recovering from shingles.

New issues of the The Reign of Mary have arrived and are available in the bookstore for a donation of any amount. 

Flyers are available in the vestibule for the 2018 Fatima Conference to be held at Mount St. Michael’s in Spokane, Washington, from Oct. 10-14. This yearly conference consists of five days of Masses, spiritual exercises, inspiring lectures and sermons, and the opportunity to meet many other Catholics. You can register by mail using the flyer or online at cmri.org. The deadline is Sep. 25.

Have you heard of Gregorian Masses? A Gregorian Novena of Masses is a series of 30 Masses offered up on 30 consecutive days for the repose of a particular soul in purgatory. This practice has its origin in Pope St. Gregory the Great (540-604), who relates in his Dialogues: “After the death of a certain monk named Justus, I took pity on his condition, knowing that he had acknowledged a grave offence against the Rule. I therefore summoned another monk and said to him: ‘Go, and offer up the Holy Sacrifice for him on thirty consecutive days, and be careful not to omit a day…’ After thirty days the monk Justus appeared to his brother Copiosus and said that it had been ill with him until the thirtieth day, but that it was now well with him” (qtd. in The Ecclesiastical Review, July 1915, p. 107). Gregorian Masses are thus believed to have special efficacy, and in 1884 the Sacred Congregation of Indulgences declared them to be “a pious practice.” If you are interested in having such a novena of Masses offered for a deceased person, please speak to Fr. Trough.

We will always remember our dear fellow-parishioner, altar server, and friend Tommy Williamitis:

Thomas Charles Williamitis
(Aug. 23, 2001 - Feb. 13, 2018)

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

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

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

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: ThucBishops.com.
