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.”

A special thanks to all who helped to make the Fall Festival such a great day, either by
working or by participating! The various booths and games were a fun attraction and the chicken dinner was superb! I’m certain no one went away hungry! I’m so grateful to
all of you for your hard work and generous spirit!
In Christ
Fr. John

Update on the 90th Anniversary Parish Pictorial Directory
For various reasons, all unforeseen, the release of our 90th Anniversary Parish Pictorial Directory has
been delayed for quite some time. 
With the revised plan, the new parish directory will be delivered to parishioners who had their
picture taken
 by Christmas.  

Because our parish has so many new parishioners over the last year, Lifetouch has agreed to one
more photo sessions in the Parish Hall.  Whether you are a new parishioner or a long-standing
member whose schedule would not allow participation last time or a family that has experienced 
change since your picture was taken last year, this is a chance for you to be a part of the directory. 
Please click here to set up your time:  https://booknow-lifetouch.appointment-plus.com/yxyj0yke/ 

Date and time:
Wednesday, October 24, 2:00 p.m -9:00 p.m. 

Contact Marcy Rodriguez at 314 -277-1125 or marcyrodriguez3@gmail.com, if you have any questions.
Having your picture taken is the only way to receive a free directory; directories may
possibly be avaiable for sale on a very limited basis. It is yet to be determined.

                                          Thank you, one and all, for your patience.

Parish Center Construction
If you have been by the Parish Center to visit the chapel or go to a meeting recently, you will have noticed that work has begun to correct the drainage problems that have affected the lower level of the building for some time now. The project will be rather extensive and will include cement work and landscaping and may cause some inconveniences along the way. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused to those who have to enter the building for meetings etc. Hopefully things will return to normal soon. Thanks for your understanding during this project.
