The 2020 Ordo
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.

An Announcement concerning Attendance at Mass in Light of the Coronavirus
Our country is employing means to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Recommendations have been put in place by the CDC and local health officials regarding social distancing and group sizes. We need to do our part in our chapels to ensure your safety.
For this reason we urge anyone who is sick, elderly, who cares for the elderly, as well as anyone who is vulnerable because of a medical condition, to remain at home while this threat lasts.
Thus, if you are sick, elderly, a caregiver, or if you have a compromised immune system, you may consider yourself dispensed from your moral obligation to attend Mass on Sunday. We will let you know of any changes to this policy.
Please follow the CDC recommendations and those of your health care provider.
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.

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.
