Entries for 'asteffens'

Recently, St. Louis County Executive Sam Page added several restrictions relating to the COVID-19 pandemic. One of the restrictions is to limit gatherings to 50 people or less. Masses are exempt from this restriction. That means we will continue our Mass schedule at 5 pm Saturday, and 8 am, 10:30 am and 5 pm Sundays.   The 10:30 am Mass is the best attended but still does not reach 20% church occupancy.  If you prefer even more distance, you might choose the 5 pm Mass on Saturday, the 8 am or 5 pm Mass on Sunday or one of the daily Masses. You can also watch Mass live on Facebook at 8 am Sunday mornings. Yo...

Ways to Give - Thanksgiving Mass

Posted on November 12, 2018 in: General News

Thursday, November 22 is Thanksgiving Day, a time for all of us to be most grateful to God for all his many gifts to us.  We will gather as a parish family for Eucharist at 9:00am on Thanksgiving morning. There will be no 6:45am or 8:00am Mass that day.  Mindful of those who do not share our bounty, all are asked to bring canned goods and other food items for our  Society of St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry.  In addition, the collection on Thanksgiving Day will be solely for our Society of St. Vincent de Paul and their work with the poor in Ferguson and our own community.
