Parish Mission Statement
“We, the community of Seven Holy Founders,
invoke the Spirit to lead us in worship, education and SERVICE.
Through the teaching of Jesus, we are led by HOPE to promote healing.
As people of FAITH, we support our Parish with our time, talent and treasures.”


It is my sad news to let you know that Deacon Tom Forster passed away late
Tuesday evening, March 19th. His wake will be this Sunday at Kutis in Affton
from 3pm to 9am and again in church Monday morning from 9am to 10am.
Funeral Mass will be celebrated Monday at 10am. I am so glad that Tom and
Bonnie were able to return to Seven Holy Founders where Tom could continue his
ministry in the diaconate. The first day he served as a deacon upon his return was
that next Thanksgiving Day. I am thankful for the time ministering with
Tom before he was called home on the feast of St. Joseph.
He cherished his call to serve as a deacon in the Church and was grateful to serve
here with so many people he had known for such a long time.
He was so generous with his time and his gifts.
I am also grateful for Tom and Bonnie’s example of faithfulness. As they faced his
final days, like so many of our parishioners that I have been privileged to be with
here at Seven Holy Founders as they faced death, Tom and Bonnie did not cling to
life. They trusted in the mercy of God, and that there is “a kingdom prepared for
him from the foundation of the world!”

In Christ, our hope of Resurrection and Life! Fr. John
