New St. Louis Church Project Update
It's hard to believe that a year has gone by since we have been in our new church. God has truly blessed our community. We have seen a wedding, a few baptisms and a couple of funerals take place in this church in the past year. We also hosted the Ecumenical Good Friday Community Service here this year.
We are thankful to all those who made it possible with your monetary donations, donation of your time and talents as volunteers during construction time and are still doing so as we continue to go forward with completion works. I would like to say a special thank you to Charlotte (Char) Kerelko, who served as chairperson for the Building Committee . Because of health issues she had to move with her husband, Dan to Villa Vista in Cromwell. Thank you Char for all that you have done during the planning and construction of this church. May God bless you and your family.
We continue to thank God for blessing our community with the means and with the generosity of others who helped us to bring us to this point. Let us continue to trust in His Divine Providence that what He allowed us to do so far we will bring to completing through his help.
Since the last update we have added these to our new building:
- Put a canopy over the main entrance of the building (south side) and added concrete platforms at every entrance and emergency exit.
- We submitted a plan for the kitchen to the State and it was approved. We finished tiling the kitchen floor and bought some appliances - freezer, refrigerator, stainless steel shelves, counters, oven. A commercial food mixer was also donated by a parishioner.
- Acquired a steel tower for the bells which will be installed in the Spring when it is warmer.
More Urgent Needs:
- Sidewalks and parking.
- Continue to work on completing the kitchen.
- Reducing our debt. As of May 1st wee have $81,269.42 left to pay back on the loan.
- Complete the canopy over the main entrance (siding).
Projects for the future
- Air handler unit for the air exchange system and for future air conditioning if needed
- Stained glass inserts for the windows in the worship area
We continue with the "That's My Tile" drive. We sell 8"x 8" tiles for $150 for memorials or for any occasion you would like us to pray for. These tiles are displayed on the "Memorial Wall" in the social hall in the new building. A Mass is offered monthly for all the intentions that are mentioned on the tiles. To place an order for a tile contact the parish office.
Monthly basket raffles are drawn at the end of Mass of the last Sunday of each month. Proceeds are for the building and for our youth. The donor of the basket will decide where to designate the proceeds.
We will be holding another raffle of a riding lawn mower during the Catfish Festival in July. Tickets are now available for $10 per ticket. There are four prizes to be won. 1st prize is a KUBOTA zero-turn riding mower; 2nd prize a 21 inch gasoline push mower; 3rd prize a RYOBI 40V battery operated weed wacker and 4th prize is a $100 cash prize.
If you wish to make a donation to the building fund please make the checks payable to St. Louis Church Building Fund.

There are a lot of things I am OK at, fewer things that I am good at, and very few things I am great at. But there is one thing that I am super great at: foosball.
You know that table soccer game that is often found in rec-rooms and bars? Well I am super great at that game. When I was in high school, I had access to a foosball table, and I was never far away from it. You might say that I squandered my high school years on foosball, but by the time I got to college no one could beat me.Read More

Admittedly, I don’t like to be wrong; ask my husband. A while back my son and I had a long disagreement about when I authorized permission for his older brother to leave campus during lunch. I was extremely confident that it was late in his senior year. My younger son believed differently, so he shared incidental evidence over and over again in an attempt to prove I was wrong, and I would not concede.
It was not until that younger son retrieved school documentation with my signature on it that I acknowledged I was wrong. I am horrible with details, so I should have known better than to count on my memory as fact. It is intriguing how evidence can be right in front of me, and I still feel a desire to deny the truth.Read More

To say that the Encyclical Letter Humanae Vitae was controversial would be a gross understatement. Blessed Pope Paul VI wrote Humanae Vitae (“of human life”) on July 25, 1968. It was addressed to “all men of good will” and was subtitled “on the regulation of birth.” The encyclical did not teach anything new but reaffirmed Catholic teaching on the relationship of human persons to God and one another as manifested within Christian marriage. Nevertheless, it became the spark that ignited widespread dissent, especially on its reaffirmation of the constant teaching of the Church on artificial birth control (i.e. contraception).
