Immaculate Heart of Mary Church

We are located in Black Eagle, Montana adjacent to Great Falls. Here at Immaculate Heart of Mary Church the traditional Latin Mass is offered daily. Our church is associated with the Society of St. Pius V - an organization of traditional Catholic priests dedicated to the traditional Latin Mass and the administration of the traditional Sacraments. The priests follow the rubrics of the Mass according to the Roman Missal (Missale Romanum 1954) prior to any of the liturgical changes implemented by the Vatican II Council.

You are most welcome to browse our web site. Please feel free to visit us here at our church if you are visiting in the Great Falls area.

You may also may visit the SSPV web site's Mass Locations link to see where Mass is offered in other states by the priests of the Society of St. Pius V.

If you would like to know the daily Mass schedule at Immaculate Heart of Mary Church please click on the Bulletin link to view the Mass schedule for the current week at our church. We have also posted the Mass schedule for other chapels under the Mass Locations menu at the top of the page.

Immaculate Heart of Mary Church also publishes The Roman Catholic magazine, a beautiful church calendar, and a latin ordo for priests. More aticles will be forthcoming.

The Immaculate Heart of Mary Church purchased the Collins (Hawthorne) School from the Great Falls School District in 1987. Before the first Mass could be offered, the gymnasium had to be converted into a church. With a tremendous amount of work by the parishioners, the traditional Latin Mass was offered in the new facility for the first time on July 11, 1988. Immediate attention had to be given to the school as well; the roof was repaired and insulated and windows replaced.

As with any building that needs to be restored, the usual repairs and updates are being made. Over the course of the years, renovation of the church has been ongoing. Just to mention a few of the major projects for the church: a choir loft was added along with a bell tower, a pipe organ installed, leaded stained glass windows were purchased, restored and placed in the church.

Beginning in 1988, the church has conducted a two-week summer school catechism program which averages about 90 students every year. The summer-school catechism is taught by the Daughters of Mary, Mother of Our Savior congregation of Sisters. The Sisters do an outstanding job in teaching the rudiments of the Faith to the children of the parish.

The 2018 Ordo

The 2018 Ordo has not been compiled yet. On all Ordos that orders are placed for, will be mailed out when the Ordo is completed, hopefully by the end of November.

The Ordo is a detailed compilation of the rubrics for assisting the priest in the offering of Mass and the recitation of the Divine Office. It is in Latin, and due to the length of this work, much if not most has been set down in a Latin abbreviated form.

The rubrics followed are that of St. Pius X for the Universal Calendar of the Church. However, feast days proper to the United States have been added. The traditional rubrics for Holy Week (pre 1956) are observed.

WORD OF INTRODUCTION

In addition, all those who wish to receive Holy Communion at the Holy Shroud Church must:
● be validly baptized in the Roman Catholic Church. Anyone who was baptized after 1970 must speak with the priest before receiving Holy Communion.
● hold all teachings and have a sufficient knowledge of the Catholic Faith. One must believe and abide by traditional Catholic moral teaching, especially regarding purity of marriage. Anyone who has received a marriage annulment since 1968 must talk to the priest before receiving Holy Communion.
● be in state of sanctifying grace to be able to receive Communion, having made a good confession to a traditional Roman Catholic priest.
● be fasting for three hours from solid food and alcoholic beverages and one hour from liquids other than water. Water and non alcoholic medicines may be taken at any time. (please note) Those who are able to do so, are encouraged to fast from midnight at those times when they plan to assist at a Mass scheduled for the morning.

Anyone who adheres to the teachings of Father Leonard Feeney and Saint Benedict Center (denying the Church’s teaching concerning “baptism of desire” and “baptism of blood”), who worships at religious services conducted by any of the CMRI bishops or clergy or Thuc bishops and clergy in concert with them, must not receive Holy Communion at Holy Shroud Church.

Ladies, as stated above, are required to wear dresses, or full skirts and blouses. Hemlines must be long enough to touch the floor when kneeling. Necklines must be no more than two fingers-widths below the pit of the throat. Slit skirts are not acceptable; a skirt is too tight if it needs to be slit to allow walking. Ladies are also required to wear a suitable head-covering while in church. Obviously, by the standards given by Pius XI, the wearing slacks, sleeveless dresses including “cap” sleeves(which are not sleeves at all), or low necklines are not suitably dress. Sleeves must cover the arms at least to the elbows.

Gentlemen also must wear modest and decent clothing in church and observe the prescript of Pope Pius XI as noted above. Men must wear dress slacks and dress shirt, with sleeves which cover the arms at least to the elbows, preferably with suit coat and tie. If their attire is immodest or indecent, they should not enter the church.

~~~~~~~~~~

Flip-flops, shorts, sweats and T-shirts are not acceptable attire in the church at any time. The wearing of revealing, tight-fitting and transparent garments of sheer material is forbidden in the Church.
Please do not come to receive Holy Communion at this church today if you do not meet these requirements. Rather, respect our standards and observe them

1. The question is, what exactly does it mean, to dress modestly?
2. What does the Catholic Church say on the matter?

On January 12, 1930, the sacred Congregation of the Council, by mandate of Pope Pius XI, has issued emphatic instructions on modesty of dress to all bishops, directing them to insist on these prescriptions:
"We recall that a dress cannot be called decent which is cut deeper than two fingers breadth under the pit of the throat, which does not cover the arms at least to the elbows, and scarcely reaches a bit beyond the knee. Furthermore, dresses of transparent material are improper.

Women must be decently dressed, especially when they go to church. The parish priest may, with due prudence, refuse them entrance to the church and access to the reception of the Sacraments, [each] and every time that they come to church immodestly dressed." (General Pastoral Directive, 1915 A.D.)

"Girls and women dressed immodestly are to be debarred from Holy Communion and from acting as sponsors at the Sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation; further, if the offense be extreme, they may even be forbidden to enter the church." [Decree of the Congregation of the Council, 1930 A.D.]
