Welcome!

We welcome your family to our religious education programs at St. Louis Church. We, and our entire parish staff and community, willingly share with you your responsibility regarding the faith formation of your children and youth.

Much attention and love is required as our children grow, not only physically, emotionally, intellectually and socially, but most importantly spiritually. We recognize that spiritual growth is the foundation for happiness. We pledge to partner with you to raise happy children and young  adults, growing in God’s love, learning and living the beliefs and traditions  of our Catholic Church, and one day continuing to pass on what they learn, live and believe from generation to generation.

What are your hopes and dreams for your children?

  • FitF Family Holy Hour 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm - 1889 Chapel

    Pope Paul VI noted that the "domestic church" mirrors "the various aspects of the entire Church". Thus it is fitting that St. Louis has a Holy Family Prayer Ministry which periodically hosts Family Holy Hours for all families.

    Please join us in the 1889 Chapel as our parish deacons and children's music ministry lead us in prayer, reflection and song with our Eucharistic Lord. All ages are encouraged to attend! These family holy hours focus on the importance of praying together as a family and striving to raise holy, Christ-centered families. Questions? Contact the Holy Family Ministry. No RSVP necessary. To receive credit for this activity, please complete an electronic summary; the directions are on page 33 in the 2018-19 “How To” book.
