By Sue Brown, Director of Marketing and Community Relations

St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School STUCO officers, Matt M. and Anna M. (below, with an image of "Flat Louie" and a statue of their patron, St. Francis) represented their school at the annual Catholic Schools Week Eighth Grade Region Mass hosted by St. Francis of Assisi Parish on Friday, January 31.

The Mass was attended by nearly 400 eighth grade students from the Catholic elementary schools of Region 5—Assumption—Mattese, Holy Cross Academy, Queen of All Saints,
St. Catherine Laboure,
St. Dominic Savio, St. Justin Martyr, St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, St. Mark and St. Simon the Apostle Catholic Schools.

The Catholic Schools Week Mass was celebrated with Bishop Edward Rice.

("Flat Louie," represents Saint Louis the King to students in Catholic schools during this 250th Anniversary Year of the City of St. Louis.)

 At St. Joseph Catholic School in Imperial, the students said, “Let's Tackle Hunger!” during Catholic Schools Week, and so the student council sponsored a canned food drive that raised 1,100 cans of food for the parish food pantry!

As students brought in their donations, they placed them under the sign of the Super Bowl Team they thought would win. 

St. Joseph School chose Denver!

Food Pantry Wins!!!

Musician Adam Bitter visits St. Simon School and meets Flat Louie

By Sue Brown, Director of Marketing and Community Relations

Catholic Schools Week is a time of celebration for all Catholic schools, both locally and nationally!

Here in the Archdiocese of St. Louis, we celebrate around a unifying theme--Alive in Christ--that embodies our Catholic identity, our academic excellence and our commitment to Christian service to the community, both local and global.

This week, each Catholic school celebrated in its own way, with its own traditions or new, exciting events.

For example, St. Simon Catholic School kicked off Catholic Schools Week on Monday morning, January 27, with a very special concert for the students. 

The guest of honor was St. Louis' own praise and worship musician, Adam Bitter, who took the time to give Flat Louie a “high five.” 

Flat Louie is becoming a bit of a "rock star" himself these days. To get to know him better and how he is helping us join in the celebration of the 250th Anniversary of the City of St. Louis, AND of our patron, St. Louis the King, visit
