    Mount Saint Michael is listed on the National Register of Historical Places. The building, which was constructed in 1916, served as a Jesuit scholasticate until 1968. Today Mount St. Michael continues to fulfill its mission as an educational and religious center. Maintained by the Priests, Brothers and Sisters of the Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen (CMRI), it serves a variety of needs for Catholics who value the traditional teachings and liturgy of their Faith. The east wing serves as a cloistered residence for the religious Sisters. The west wing houses church offices, a religious gift shop with hundreds of traditional Catholic books and religious goods, and a private academy for students from kindergarten through high school. A beautifully-adorned chapel located on the second floor serves as the parish church.

    For Newcomers: About Chapel and Communion

    Visitors will notice that a prayerful silence permeates the chapel at all times. In many churches today, it is considered acceptable to carry on conversations before or after Mass, or to make occasional comments to one's neighbor during the course of the service. Here at Mount St. Michael, we request that you follow the custom of maintaining silence in the church. The church is truly the House of God. Silence is a sign of reverence for the presence of God and demonstrates your spirit of consideration for those who wish to pray in silence.

    Visitors are welcome to attend Holy Mass and join in offering worship to Almighty God. Holy Communion, the reception of the Holy Eucharist, is the culmination of every Mass. Catholics believe that the Holy Eucharist is the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, truly, really and substantially present under the outward appearances of bread and wine. The Catholic Church teaches that in receiving Holy Communion we fulfill the command of Christ: Unless a man eat My Flesh and drink My Blood, he shall not have life in him.

    Reception of the Holy Eucharist signifies the profession of the Catholic Faith. For one who does not profess the traditional Catholic Faith, to receive the Holy Eucharist would symbolize a unity of faith that does not in fact exist. For this reason, non-Catholics and those who do not accept the traditional teachings of the Church are not permitted to receive the sacraments here.

    At St. Michael's Parish, the liturgy is celebrated according to the traditional Latin Rite of the Catholic Church. We have remained faithful to the traditional Mass not out of nostalgia, stubbornness or disobedience, but out of heartfelt love for the Catholic Faith.

    The traditional Latin Mass is a perfect expression of the unchanging and unchangeable Catholic teaching on the nature of the Mass and the Holy Eucharist. In Catholic theology, the Mass is the renewal and application to our daily lives of the greatest act of worship, the Passion and Death of Jesus Christ. Holy Mass reminds us of our duty to our Creator. In the Mass we join with the perfect Sacrifice Jesus offered to His Eternal Father on Calvary. The Mount's lovely chapel provides a marvelous setting for the celebration of the sacred liturgy.
