I received this nice “thank you” note from the Crossroads Pro Life Walkers:

“Thank you so much for welcoming us to speak at your parish! It was such a blessing to meet your parishioners, spread the prolife message, and receive so much prayerful and financial support and encouragement. We will be keeping your parish in our prayers as we continue walking across America this summer. Once again, thank you for your generosity.”

We recently selected new members for our Parish Council. After reading from the Acts of the Apostles, regarding the selection of St. Matthias, we placed eight names in a basket. The four selected were: Richard Ahrens, Chris Archer, Mike Flanagan, and Judy Sauer. Although not selected, I thank Tricia Bohler, Laura Byrne, Mike Carter, and Debbie Miller for their willingness to give their time and talent for our Parish Council.

“Hats Off!” to our Knights of Columbus for their recent $3,000 donation to our Tuition Fund. Each week at the bottom of the Sharing Our Treasure section of the bulletin we list the current amount of our Tuition Fund. Remember each year we help about 30 families with reduced tuition for our parish Catholic School. Your generosity to this fund is GREATLY APPRECIATED!

Help us spread the word about our RCIA beginning another session in September. If you know of someone interested in becoming Catholic, or just “to take a look,” contact Paul Cooper at 314-487-2522, x222 or

Also our Parish School of Religion (PSR), for students who attend public schools, begins September 9th. Our PSR families are very dear to us here at SMMA. Contact Mr. Cooper for further information – 314-487-2522, x222 or

Our SMMA Athletic Association is offering their annual golf tournament on Saturday, September 21st. I’m looking forward to “dusting off” my clubs! It’s a great way to support all the sports opportunities for the youth of our parish and community. Further information is here.

God Bless You!

Msgr. Norb Ernst – Pastor


Help Us Keep You Informed!

More and more we are depending on electronic devices to communicate.
If you did not receive recent emails about the Picnic or the Fr. Scheiderer Farewell event, you need to sign up with the Parish email system. That way you will receive the emails pertaining to many of the events coming this Fall. (ACTS Retreat, Online Auction, and the “Made For More” event.)
We want to start using this email system to communicate more effectively with parishioners going forward.
