Welcome to the traditional Latin Mass, and to the unchanged Catholic Faith.
The priests and parishioners of Mary Immaculate Queen Church reject the changes of Vatican II. We want to preserve the Roman Catholic Faith by maintaining everything which was taught and done by the Church prior to Vatican II.
The pastor of Mary Immaculate Queen Church is Father Benedict Hughes, CMRI, and the assistant pastor is Fr. Augustine Walz, CMRI, both priests belonging to the religious Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen . The bishop and priests of the Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen (CMRI) offer only the Tridentine Latin Mass in all the churches and chapels they serve. Remaining faithful to all of the Church’s venerable teachings and traditions, Mary Immaculate Queen Church reflects the truths and doctrines that will never change with the times.
Come and see it for yourself! If you have not been to a Latin Mass in many years, or if you have never been to one at all, you will be pleasantly surprised at what you find at Mary Immaculate Queen Church. You will feel as if you have come home, as indeed you have.

If this is the first time you have attended the Traditional Latin Mass, you may have noticed that our parishioners do not dress casually in the church. Since the changes in the Church, few parishes have any kind of dress code. Here, however, we still believe that modesty and appropriate attire are necessary, especially in Church out of reverence for the Blessed Sacrament. Please observe these minimum standards of dress for attendance at Church services:
Women and girls must cover their heads. Chapel veils or mantillas are available for loan in the vestibule. They should also wear dresses or skirts that cover the knee completely when standing or sitting; slacks, shorts, sleeveless, tight or low cut clothing are not permitted.
Men and boys should wear a suit coat and tie
Jeans and other casual attire are inappropriate for attendance at Church services.
Also, unless you have been attending the Latin Mass exclusively, you should refrain from receiving Holy Communion until you have had an opportunity to meet with Father.
We are always happy to see new faces at Mary Immaculate Queen Church and we look forward to seeing you again.
