Boy Scouts

Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts are one of the oldest youth leader ship organizations in the world. St. Louis is fortunate to have an active Cub Scout Pack that feeds into our BSA troop. We teach kids important life skills as well as organizational leadership skills. We show these children the beauty of our natural environment and how to best care for it while we enjoy the treasure that God has given us.

For the first time in our school’s history we now have coed scouting with our first lions den of kindergarten girls. With tremendous support from our church, we are bringing up a new generation of American leaders in our Cub Scout Pack.

Health Awareness

The mission of the St. Louis Catholic Church Health Ministry is to strengthen our walk with Jesus Christ through increasing our knowledge and awareness of the greatness of His temple the human body.

To increase our knowledge regarding the aspects of health by improving our spiritual, physical, emotional and chemical actions. To provide a network of spiritual minded health providers and lay people that will provide support and knowledge toward making healthy decisions.

Stewardship Council

Our Parish Stewardship Council is comprised of parishioners who are dedicated Stewards. Their function is to share the Gospel meaning of stewardship and help spread the practice of stewardship to every home in the Parish. The Stewardship Council assists and enhances Ministries in the Parish.

They coordinate all Stewardship activities for the year on an ongoing basis. There are two other Divisions of our Stewardship Ministry. Our New Parishioner Welcome Program and our Parish Welcome Table. These operate independently; but are part of our Stewardship Ministry. The members of our Stewardship Council must have the necessary time and be available to help in every way they can, including assisting and directing Stewardship functions on weekends at Masses. Meetings are held monthly or as needed throughout the year.

“Stewardship is a way of Life”

Welcome Table

The Welcome Table is set up in the narthex at each Sunday Liturgy to provide some information about St. Louis Catholic Church, answer questions and/or register new parishioners. We also encourage people to get involved by offering the ministry booklets, the ministry list and the form to indicate a ministry they might like to join.
