During this time without Mass consider making an Act of Spiritual Communion, where we unite ourselves to God through prayer. It is a beautiful way to express to God our desire to be united with him when we are unable to complete that union in the reception of Holy Communion.

My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come a...

The parish Food For Life collection for April will be handled a little differently due to the suspension of all public Masses in the Archdiocese of St. Louis.  We will have baskets in the back of church throughout the week for folks to drop off their donations whenever convenient. Any time before Sunday evening on April 5 is suitable as the donations will be delivered to the food pantry the next day Monday, April 6.  Obviously, many folks are struggling through this crisis. It is particularly a tough time for the poor. They have little resources to fall back on. The pantries are struggling too with many h...

Your assistance is greatly needed to help our young people stay close to their faith and grow in their relationship with Our Lord.  It is through their connection with their college Catholic community that they will be able to make friends, continue their formation and grow as they discern what dire...
