Holy Week schedule: Fr. Trough will be offering Mass at St. Therese on Monday, Mar. 26. Good Friday, Mar. 30, we will have lay-led Stations of the Cross and Tre Ore devotions at noon. On Holy Saturday, Mar. 31, we will have the Easter Vigil beginning at 10:30 pm, with Easter Sunday Mass beginning around midnight. There will be no other Mass for Easter Sunday other than the one at midnight between Saturday and Sunday.

Special Easter Mass Intention envelopes will be available in the vestibule. These intentions will be remembered at the Easter Sunday Mass Father will offer in Michigan on Apr. 1.

Looking ahead: Fr. Gabriel Lavery, CMRI, will be replacing Fr. Trough for Sunday, Apr. 8.  

Please keep in your prayers the Michael DiSalvo family. Mary just lost her full-term baby girl due to complications at birth, and she herself nearly died as well. Baby Josephine was able to be baptized conditionally, and Mary is recovering.

St. Therese church has received from mourners a total of $350 in donations in memory of Thomas Williamitis, R.I.P. We express our gratitude to the donors and to the Williamitis family.

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. 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:


If you would like to become a parishioner of St. Therese's, please complete a registration form and put it in the collection basket. Copies are available in the vestibule (look for the yellow forms).
