Introduction

A community of believers. A place of worship. A growing campus. 

A few poor families gather in someone’s home to pray. They invite a priest to say Mass. A mission is established. A small church built. The mission becomes a parish. Growth continues, always with Eucharist at the heart of who we are and what we believe. Now, on any given weekend, the hundreds of families who call St. Louis parish their spiritual home choose from a full weekend schedule of Masses, participate in one of several models of religious education and faith formation offered, and give back in service through one of the many ministries that flow out of living our call to be disciples of Jesus.

We share our story in this parish history to remember where we have come from and to honor the debt we owe to the men and women who have gone before us. We are the grateful recipients of their faith and their generosity.  We invite you to become part of the living history of our parish!
