Catholic Bible Fellowship

This ministry is dedicated to deepening our understanding and love of our Lord Jesus Christ and His Church through the study of His Word. We offer evening and morning sessions. Childcare is provided at the morning session.

Our study materials are written by leading Catholic scripture scholars and are faithful to the teachings of the Catholic Church. We gather to share personal insights, receive DVD teachings on the lesson material by Catholic priests, as well as pray and fellowship together.

All are welcome: Those new to Bible study or veterans of the Word. Join us as we allow God’s Word to take root within us and “be transformed by the renewing of your mind” (Rom 12:2).

Men’s Monday Morning Bible Study

The oldest Ministry at St. Louis Catholic Church is based on the fact that Scripture is “Living.” Monday Morning Bible Study is Stewardship in Ministries not exactly a “Study”, but more of a “Sharing”.

Consisting of about 25 regulars, each has a scheduled week to take the readings for the coming Sunday and do “research” from Catholic Commentaries about their meanings and history. After a brief lecture, the Men go around the table and each one shares how the readings touch them and apply either to their walk or their lives.

After hearing from 25 men, the Scripture often is much more meaningful leading to a deeper understanding for the Homily coming on Sunday. Low key, high Spirit, every week brings us closer to the Lord.

R.C.I.A.

We welcome new members to the Church through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults called R.C.I.A. This program prepares them to receive the sacraments of initiation: Baptism, Holy Communion and Confirmation on Easter Vigil. RCIA also serves baptized non Catholics who want to joint the Catholic Church as well as Catholic adults who never received First Communion or Confirmation.

Religious Education

Pre-School to Grade Six: The Religious Education Program is offered for children from preschool through sixth grade at various times during the week in the school year. Based on the premise that Jesus didn’t teach his disciples the beatitudes and did not begin preaching until they had first met Him and learned to love Him, the Religious Education Program has four fundamental goals:

  • (1) proclaim the message of Jesus Christ;
  • (2) contribute to the building of community;
  • (3) lead students to worship and prayer; and
  • (4) motivate them to serve others. Volunteers from the parish community provide the environment for the children to meet and love Jesus through preparing classes, helping with studentliturgies and various music and art projects.
Youth Ministry Edge (Grades 7 & 8)

Edge is St. Louis’ middle school youth ministry. The format follows cutting-edge youth ministry styles in order to meet the needs of the students.

The students experience a variety of activities designed to help them spiritually, socially, physically, and emotionally. Typical meetings include games, skits, music, talks, and small group discussions of the topic presented that night. Topics range from Catholic doctrine to spiritual and social issues relevant to a middle schooler’s life and development.

In addition to the weekly meetings are a wide variety of weekend social activities, service projects, and retreats. Students develop close friendships with their peers and leaders. It is through these relationships that we create a Christ centered community, fostering meaningful faith sharing and growth.

Youth Ministry New Life (Grades 9-12)

New Life is the youth ministry for high school students. Meetings consist of gathering, opening prayer, live music (Christian rock and praise music), student led skits, topic presentations, small group discussion time, and closing prayer.

Topics range from prayer to sexuality, all from the perspective of Catholic theology. Discussions go into further depth in our Bible studies, retreats and overnight Lock-Ins.

New Life also offers special activities, such as weekend and Spring Break retreats, summer trips, paintball games, Lock-Ins, etc. All activities are designed to foster exciting, faith filled growth.

The Prayer and Life Workshops consist of 15 Sessions. These sessions include prayers, scripture readings, communal prayer, and our intimate sharing of thoughts and ideas with one another.
