As we approach the 189th anniversary of the Archdiocese of St. Louis, we have been blessed with extraordinary growth and an increasingly diverse population, but with this expansion comes new and exciting challenges. Here at St. Luke’s, we, too, have faced the challenges of growth, and we have responded with faith and joy, recognizing this growth as an opportunity to bring new people to the table of the Lord. This growth is expected to continue into the foreseeable future, and God is calling us to prepare, so that we may continue to build the body of Christ throughout Eastern Missouri and effectively minister to the needs of His people.
In partnership with the Archdiocese of St. Louis, we are now embarking on a bold new journey to make long-held dreams a reality at St. Luke the Evangelist. The Beyond Sunday campaign strives to address current and future parish and Archdiocesan needs, providing the strong financial foundation necessary to maintain and one day expand our Catholic schools and advance our mission.
The Archdiocese of St. Louis was built on the sacrifices and dedication of those who came before us. Now it is our turn to make an investment in the future of the Catholic Church in our community. May the Holy Spirit guide and direct our efforts as we begin this historic journey together. Please join me in praying for our success throughout the Beyond Sunday campaign.
