Catholic Parishes in the American Redoubt

  I would love to provide to conservative Catholics a list of conservative traditional Catholic churches.  For that, hopefully Catholics already living in Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, eastern Oregon, and eastern Washington can help me and many others find  catholic parishes lead by conservative priest to consider joining.  If you have any information, please drop me a post here.

Here are a few I’ve found that should make the cut, primarily because of the Catholic Order’s that lead them.  I really like help from anyone out there in the vetting of these and any other Catholic churches to recommend to potentially relocating Catholic families.

More information:  Bishop designates chapel for Latin Mass community BOISE – Bishop Michael P. Driscoll approved the conditional establishment of St. Joan of Arc Chapel within St. George Parish, Post Falls, effective Sept. 5. He also assigned Father Michael T. Irwin as its chaplain. Father Irwin is a member of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter.

The designation of the chapel is a response to a longstanding request from the Latin Mass community in the parish. The status was granted ad experimentum, a conditional status subject to review after two years.  The community is currently worshipping in a rented hall, but remains under the parish jurisdiction of St. George’s, located at 2004 North Lucas St.   Members of the community must register with Father Irwin, who can be contacted by calling the parish office at 773-4715. The rules that apply to other Catholic parishes and chapels will be applied to St. Joan’s, including participation in deanery and diocesan events, ecclesial structures and sacramental life.

The approval comes after more than four years of dialogue between the bishop and leaders in the community.  Idaho Falls Holy Rosary Church 145 Ninth Street Fr. John O’Sullivan 208.522.4366

  1. I am a parishioner at Our Lady Star of the Sea, in Bremerton, Washington. While geographically we are firmly behind enemy lines, spirtually we are Traditional. We celebrate the Tridentine Latin Mass at least twice monthly. Our Sunday Masses are always a sung Mass. Our schola chants the Propers in Latin. We have actual confessionals, with regularly scheduled confession. 80+% receive the Eucharist on the tongue. Altar BOYS. Anyone in western WA, give us a visit!

  2. Thank you for finding us through Father Z.

    That is a hard question as you know. I believe the SSPX is doing the best it can in a very very hard situation. Are the majority of the Women Religious in the U.S. in schism? I think so. The Holy Father has assigned an Inquisitor to oversee their accounts, but we don’t stop attending their hospitals, or talking with them.

    There is no doubt there are homosexual heretics infesting the Church and attacking her.

    There is no doubt there are modernist heretics corrupting and weakening the Church.

    What are you to do in such a situation? Thus I have great compassion for the SSPX. I do not have a problem attending their services. I do not have too, because there are an active FSSP Priest in my area, but I would rather attend an SSPX parish then the heretical new mass of the modernist heretics. The last time I attended a new mass, I nearly threw up. The priest was in tennis shoes and there were young girls that looked like strippers helping in the service.

    The CLM is a great idea, and I believe that approach dove tails into the American Redoubt concept very well. The CLM would need to be updated to modern times.

    Coeur d’Alene Idaho is a central activity point for many Catholics. If had to do this again, I would also visit Cody, Idaho where the traditionalist Carmalite Monks have setup a retreat and offer Mass (for men only at this time). Basically we cannot have worship without Priest. Thus I would focus on finding where traditional Priest are active.

    Coeur d’Alene Idaho was too cold for my family, thus you may want to look at the area of Lewiston (Idaho) Clarkston (Washington). The Clarkston / Lewiston area has many, many benefits, land is still cheap, the city is “big enough” for us, massive natural resources. Only downside is there is a massive paper-mill in the city and some do not like the smell of it, if you are downwind wind.

    If you use the search field to the Left, and search for SSPX, you can find numerous articles where I talk over the SSPX and the SSPX in the American Redoubt.


    “That which does not correspond to the truth or to the moral norm possesses, objectively, no right either to existence or to propagation or to action.”
    Pope Pius XII

  3. Do you believe that the SSPX is in schism?
    I have followed your blog after Father Z peeked my interest in the American Redoubt. I have also been following the CLM for a couple of years.
    We have some interest in moving to Idaho, and are seeking out like minded individuals and also spiritual direction.
