Worship and Sacraments Commission
This commission works to ensure that the Eucharist permeates all activities of the parish by increasing participation at Mass, connecting liturgies to the works of mercy and outreach of the parish, and facilitating a more coordinated use of homilies and catechesis to reinforce teaching. The commission also assists in preparing parishioners for the sacraments and promotes Eucharistic Adoration. Commission Chair: Carol Craft, 314-842-2626 or send an email.

If you had a top ten list.. 2nd Sunday of Advent
