World Marriage Day

February 11 ~ Noon Mass at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis, MO

All married couples are invited to attend and celebrate the gift of marriage.  World Marriage Day honors husband and wife as the foundation of the family – the basic unit of society.  It emphasizes the faithfulness, sacrifice and joy of daily married life.


Next weekend, every parish in the diocese will begin a new year participating in The Catholic Service and Ministry Appeal.  This annual collection supports the ministries and agencies in our diocese whose scope of service could not be duplicated by an individual parish.   You will have an opportunity to make your pledge or gift at Mass next weekend and throughout the whole year, until we meet our goal.  No gift is too great or too small.  If you do not receive a pledge card in the mail or forget to bring it, please use one of the reply envelopes that will be available at each door of church.  Our new goal for 2024 will be publicized soon.
