Help Flood Victims
To the Faithful of the Archdiocese of St. Louis,
We must all be deeply saddened by the devastation our brothers and sisters living along flooded rivers in our community are realizing, now that the near all-time historic high waters
are receding. After an initial assessment, several hundred households mostly in St. Charles and Lincoln Counties have been affected with major damage or a complete loss. I ask the Lord to carry those who are suffering and who have lost so much. To help provide immediate and long-term aid to those impacted by this most recent natural disaster, I am asking our nearly 200 parishes in 11 counties to participate in a second collection at all Masses NEXT WEEKEND,
August 24 & 25th.

Make checks payable to Seven Holy Founders. Funds raised will go directly to relief efforts provided by Catholic Charities of St. Louis and Sts. Joachim and Ann Care Service. I will be offering Mass for those who have been impacted in this natural disaster. I ask you to please join your prayers to mine for our neighbors who must now rebuild their lives.

Sincerely yours in Christ,
Most Reverend
Robert J. Carlson
Archbishop of St. Louis

Notes from Our Pastor

Children's Liturgy
Dear Seven Holy Founders Community,
We would like to invite you to attend our Children's Liturgy of the Word. On the
second Sunday of each month, we invite young children (ages 2- 7) to participate in a lesson and activity about the Gospel. (We ask that at least one parent of 2 and 3 year olds attends
with them). The priest will call up all children for a blessing before the First Reading, and children will return to their pews before the Offertory. At this time, Children's Liturgy will be held in the rectory. Upcoming dates are September 8th at 9am Mass, October 13th at 9am Mass, and November 10th at 9am Mass. For questions or concerns, please contact gailshf@aol.com.

Welcome to our Seven Holy Founders
PSR Families!

On Sunday, August 25th,
we invite you to attend
the 9:00AM Mass to celebrate
the beginning of our PSR School year. After Mass, PSR families will be asked to go over to the Parish Hall where we will enjoy some coffee, milk, and doughnuts while Fr. John and I do a small welcome back presentation!
After presentation, you and your child will get to go to their PSR classroom and meet their teacher. PSR Classes begin on Monday, August 26th! We can't wait to see you there!
