Parish Seder Meal

You and your family are cordially invited to participate in a Seder Meal here at Little Flower on Holy Thursday, April 2, at 5:30 p.m. in the cafeteria. This will be a full-meal Seder, including an entrée and dessert to accompany the traditional ritual foods. 

   The word "Seder" means order or arrangement and refers to the ritual meal at which the story of the passage of the Hebrews from slavery to freedom is retold. The Seder is reflective of the Passover supper Jesus shared with His followers on the evening before He died. We will follow the order of the Haggaddah, which recounts the story of the Exodus from Egypt and includes the prescribed blessings and rituals. 
   Reservations are necessary so that we can prepare for everyone. There is no fee, but there will be a free will offering to help offset the cost of the meal. The Seder will conclude in time for participants to attend the Holy Thursday Mass of the Lord's Supper in Church.
   Make your reservation by March 25 by sending an e-mail with your name, phone number and the number of adults and children who will attend, to or call Claire Tenhundfeld at 541-5560.

Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of abstinence from meat and also fast days, that is, limited to a single full meal. The other Fridays of the season of Lent are days of abstinence from meat. The law of abstinence binds all Catholics 14 years of age and older. The law of fasting binds all Catholics from their 18th birthday until their 59th birthday.

Good Friday - Mt. Airy Way of the Cross

13th Annual Outdoor Way of the Cross – Come walk in the footsteps of Jesus. Each year, a large wooden cross is carried through Mt. Airy, prayerfully retracing the footsteps of Jesus on his way to Calvary. We start at Truth and Destiny Church, 2645 North Bend Road (near the water tower) at 3:00 p.m. We stop along the way for Gospel readings and prayer. We pass by the churches of Mt. Airy and end at the corner lot on Colerain and Kirby Road.  The route is about half a mile and takes one hour. Rain or shine. Sponsored by the Churches of Mt. Airy.


Mission Statement:

We are a community of evangelizing disciples being transformed by the Gospel in order to transform our parish, our neighborhood and our world.

We will do this by cultivating faith formation, participating in spirit-filled worship, fostering stewardship, and reaching out in the name of Jesus to those in need.

Vision Statement:

St. Therese Little Flower Parish is the sacramental presence of Jesus . . . the mind and heart, the hands and feet, the words and deeds . . . the incarnate and living Body of Christ for our own place and time.

Lenten Choir Festival
Most Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About...Consecrated Life
The Year of Consecrated Life

Pope Francis has set aside November 30, 2014 through February 2, 2016 as the Year of Consecrated Life.  Our Archbishop has set the objectives for this celebration in our Archdiocese: to increase the visibility of religious life/consecrated life, to express appreciation, to highlight the joy experienced in this vocational choice, and to educate on the importance of on religious life/consecrated life to the Church.  As one means of learning more about religious life/consecrated life, our website will periodically have an educational component in the form of a question and answer. It is our hope that you will not only read the entries but discuss them your family, friends, co-workers.  And perhaps share stories about the influence of consecrated women and men in your life.

Are Sister and Nun interchangeable terms?
Despite the fact that you may call someone Sister and in the next breath describe her as a nun; these terms are not interchangeable strictly speaking.  A Catholic nun is a woman who lives a contemplative life in a monastery which is usually cloistered (enclosed) or semi-cloistered. Her ministry and prayer life is centered within and around the monastery for the good of the world. She professes the perpetual solemn vows living a life according to the evangelical counsels of poverty, celibacy, and obedience.   A Catholic sister is a woman who (does) lives, ministers, and prays within the world. A sister's life is often called "active" or "apostolic" because she is engaged in the works of mercy and other ministries that take the Gospel to others where they are. She professes perpetual simple vows living a life according to the evangelical counsels of poverty, celibacy, and obedience. 

More information on Consecrated Life will be posted periodically, so check back often!
