St. Louis Parish



I am delighted that you have chosen to learn more about us and our community. We are located in western Howard County and although we are a large community, visitors to our church invariably remark about the friendliness and warmth of the people and staff at St. Louis. We are also a parish community that appreciates its history and roots–and we have four churches to prove it!! The very first church used by the parish was built in 1855; in 1889 a second church was built and is very much in use today; then in 1980 a new and larger church was built to accommodate a growing parish. The continued growth of the parish over the last two decades necessitated the building of an even larger church which was dedicated in April 2006.If I were asked to describe the spirit of this community, I would say that it is a community that is very much in tune with the times–proud to be exceptionally active and involved in a broad array of ministries and activities while at the same time respecting and advocating the basic traditional Christian values that the Gospel proclaims.

Please feel free to visit–you are always welcome!

Sincerely in Christ,
Msgr. Joseph L. Luca
