  Our annual “Tootsie Roll Drive” has been the main fundraiser for the Knights of Columbus Developmental Center for decades. While COVID-19 has forced us to change our methods, we will have a traditional Drive at Seven Holy Founders the weekend of Oct 31 and Nov 1 to help meet the needs of this fantastic facility and the people that depend upon it, plus our other local charities. There will be baskets at the 2 entrances to church in the back along with prepackaged Tootsie Rolls Oct31 and Nov 1. Should you feel more comfortable giving online, log online anytime to www.continuetogive.com/tootsieroll3586 to safely and securely give your donation. Any amount is appreciated as we work towards our goal of $7,000 across all of our Parishes and the intersection of Sappington and Watson Rd. Your local council, Fr Griffin and the Missouri State Knights of Columbus Thanks you for your support.

  Notes from Our Pastor

 

We live in a time when all of us have a sense that we are not in control. It is a time when we can invite those who do not have faith to consider that God will see us all through difficult times. Do you know anyone who is searching? Perhaps you can invite them to draw closer to God in the Catholic Faith!
FIND FAITH – FIND GOD!
Call Sr. Pat at the rectory (314-638-3938) OR Email her  pkofron@foundersaffton.org

 2021 Mass Book Is Open. Please place your Mass requests IN WRITING, (INCLUDE substitution dates) and drop in the collection basket or mail to the Rectory Office. Requests will be processed in the order in which they are received. If your request cannot be filled, the closest available date will be substituted. Stipend for a Mass $10. The offering for a Sanctuary Light remains the same, at $15. In order to be fair, and to try to accommodate everyone’s requested dates, you will be limited to 2 Sundays or 2 Saturdays Masses at 4:30pm and 3 weekday Masses. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS. We understand that weekends might be the most preferable for you and your family, but it is not something we can do. There simply are not enough weekend Masses in a calendar year for that to happen. No Mass stipends will be taken for Christmas, Easter, Mother’s Day, or Father’s Day. Those Masses will be offered for all of you, Our Parishioners. 

Don'f forget to purchase your TWB gift cards at the Rectory. 
They make great gifts for students away at college.

The Archdiocese of St. Louis has developed a new system for safe environment compliance called Prevent and Protect STL.  Everyone ministering to minors and vulnerable adults (clergy, employees and volunteers) in the Archdiocese are required and asked to register in the new system before December 15, 2020.  This includes those new to service and those who are currently in service.  For those who have already attended a Protecting God’s Children workshop, your previous training date will transfer to this new system.  In addition to attending a live Protecting God’s Children workshop, all clergy, volunteers, and employees will register for an updated background screening, view two new online training modules on abuse reporting and the Code of Ethical Conduct, and agree to the updated Code of Ethical Conduct.  Please go to www.preventandprotectstl.org to register. The passcode is stlprotect.  You will not be able to volunteer after January 1, 2021, if this is not completed.
Contact Mary Truetken, Child Safety Coordinator, at mtruetken@foundersaffton.org with any questions or for further assistance.

Dear Parishioners, With the Christmas season rapidly approaching, Seven Holy Founders St Vincent DePaul Society is preparing to assist our Neighbors in Need with their Christmas Wish Lists. Many of our neighbors are struggling to pay utilities, rent, car payments, etc... and are unable to provide food or even the basic necessities for their families. We anticipate the need for assistance to be even greater this year. We are appealing to you, our generous parishioners to assist by adopting a family and fulfilling their Wish List. We understand that many of you may be uncomfortable with shopping, however, if you would be willing to adopt a family, we have a team of “Shopping Angels” who will do the shopping for you. In addition, we will be having our Giving Trees at the entrances to church. Some of the items we need include: gift cards (Schnucks, Aldi, Target, Walmart, gasoline and dollar stores), sheet sets, blankets, diapers( sizes NB through 5), Pull Ups, Baby Wipes, Kitchen and Bath towels, and pots/pans. Even if you are unable to pick up a star at church, you can still purchase any of these items, wrap them and place a tag on them with the contents of the package. These can be dropped off at the back of church or at the Rectory. If needed, we can pick these up from your home. If you wish to shop on-line, items can be delivered to the Rectory( attn: SHF-SVDP).If you have any questions or to adopt a family, please call Patty Papke at (314)680-3134. We thank you for praying for the success of our endeavors and for considering the ways you can assist our Neighbors in Need. In Christ, The St Vincent de Paul Christmas Committee
