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?

    Come join us with your little ones for a children-focused, stress-free Stations of the Cross experience in the St. Louis 1889 Chapel each Friday during Lent (except Good Friday) from 5:30-6:15 pm. We’ll briefly explain why and how we pray the Stations of the Cross, then give our little ones an opportunity to actively participate and get up close to each Station as we make the Way of the Cross together. We’ll finish in time to head to the Social Hall afterwards to share a Lenten Dinner together. This is a great opportunity to introduce your young ones to the Stations and to stay focused on the love Jesus has for us. Come stay awake with Him for just one hour.
