Parish Youth Ministry News

July 17 thru 19 is a youth group event called Steubenville for 9th thru 12th grades.  It is such a fun trip you won't want to miss it!  Our Youth Ministry Office with the St. Louis Archdiocese has a great program set up for us.  We stay on the Missouri State campus in Springfield.  We will do a fundraiser at the IHM Sausage Dinner in April to help with the costs.  For more information check out or just google Steubenville STL Mid-America.  There are some really good YouTube videos you can check out, too.  We need to send in deposits, so please let me know ASAP.
