|Welcome,||Picnic Volunteer Sign-up|
I am delighted that you have chosen to learn more about us and our community. We are located in western Howard County and although we are a large community, visitors to our church invariably remark about the friendliness and warmth of the people and staff at St. Louis.We are also a parish community that appreciates its history and roots--and we have four churches to prove it!! The very first church used by the parish was built in 1855 and is in the process of being restored; in 1889 a second church was built and is very much in use today; then in 1980 a new and larger church was built to accommodate a growing parish. The continued growth of the parish over the last two decades necessitated the building of an even larger church which was dedicated in April 2006.
If I were asked to describe the spirit of this community, I would say that it is a community that is very much in tune with the times--proud to be exceptionally active and involved in a broad array of ministries and activities while at the same time respecting and advocating the basic traditional Christian values that the Gospel proclaims.
Please feel free to visit--you are always welcome!
Sincerely in Christ,
