Fellow parishioners This is a mostly Anglo, English-speaking, working class community. Many are large families. Coeur d’Alene is a tourist town on a lake, however, so you may see some visitors.
Parking The lot is small, so you may need to park on the street.

 

 

 

 

Acoustics Fine. Remember, during the Low Mass the priest prays softly most of the time, so you may want to sit in the front if you want to hear.

Cry room Yes, in the rear. It is separated from the church by glass. It is for moms only; usually those nursing babies.

Additional observations This is an old-school parish, the only one of its kind in the state of Idaho operating with permission of the retiring bishop of Idaho, Michael Driscoll (originally from the diocese of Orange in California). Please wear your Sunday best; women are asked to wear a dress or skirt and head covering.
