I begin by offering CONGRATULATIONS! to Msgr. Leach. This Friday, March 22nd, will be Msgr.’s 61st ordination anniversary. Good health to you Msgr! We are so blessed to have your inspiring presence here at SMMA. Ad Multos Annos!

I love my White House Retreat with the men of the parish every year. Just to let the women know, there is a retreat for women at White House March 25 – 28. Information available by calling 314- 416-6400.

I want to highlight the front cover of this bulletin and our request for accurate, updated information from our parishioners, especially correct phone numbers and email addresses. THANK YOU!

Also, this bulletin contains the priest confessor schedule for our RECONCILIATION WEEKEND next Friday evening and all day Saturday. Lent is the perfect time to come and receive the Lord’s sacramental mercy, compassion, and forgiveness.

Blessing for Lent!

Msgr. Norb Ernst – Pastor



The Office of Communications and Planning for the Archdiocese of St. Louis asked us to share this information.

In an interview with Jennifer Brinker of the St. Louis Review, interview Archbishop Robert J. Carlson, Bishop Mark. S. Rivituso and Sandra Price of the Office of Child and Youth Protection share thoughts on last weekend’s Vatican Summit on the Protection of Minors and what the archdiocese does to protect children. The interview can be watched athttps://www.archstl.org/abp-carlson-sees-summit-as-a-step-toward-healing-3690.

The Office of Communications and Planning asks you to direct your ministries, parishes, parishioners and social media followers to the St. Louis Review website to see this important interview.

The media release regarding the summit shared earlier this week also is attached.
